new version of 1921-P VAM 3FD

An apparent new version of 1921-P VAM 3FD seems to have surfaced. The already known 3FD has heavy die polishing lines around TRUST and OF on the reverse, presumably done to efface heavy feed finger polishing in that area: VAM 3FD Brent.jpg Brent and I have known for a while, though, that examples be...

Re: Hiatus

I totally understand your frustration John. People ask questions, then push back against both replies and credentials. It's a story as old as VAMworld itself.

Thanks for hanging in there as long as you did.

Re: (4) 1921-D scribbles help needed

We all do it the same way: slow side-by-side scrolling comparison (plus lots of squinting and lots of sighing, knowing that there are a ton of 1921-D VAMs that do not have photos in the scribbles guide.

Re: 1880 S DMPL

The only way to find out is to have it regraded somewhere. And that won't be cheap. When you consider postage to get it there, grading cost, and especially return postage, it will add up to $50 or more pretty quickly. The obverse certainly looks better than 61 in the photo, but I'm suspicious about ...

Re: 1878s Top 30 Rarity List

Defining "rarity" is a huge can of worms.

Is the list you have in mind going to look at date+mint mark alone, or will it take grade-PL-DMPL into consideration? For example, all 10 of the Long Nock VAMs are exquisitely rare in any Mint State grade.

one of a kind GSA?

I think so. The single 1889 and 1893 Carson City Morgans that made it into hard pack GSA holders are and always will be more famous, more desirable, and more valuable. But this 1902 Micro-O in a GSA soft pack may also be just one of a kind. A dealer friend showed fogie and me this incredible unicorn...

Re: CAC is the next new grading company

It will be fascinating to see how a CAC grading service is able to exist in a world in which the PCGS Registry program is a 600-lb. gorilla. I say that because it's extraordinarily unlikely that CAC coins will be accepted in PCGS Registry sets.

Re: 1878s Top 30 Rarity List

No interest here; already there are Top 30 and Top 30 complete sets, not based just on rarity. Population reports in SSDC registry for individual varieties are not entirely accurate either as lots of collectors don’t participate. What you're talking about is a "fewest registered" set – which can of...

Re: Need Help with 1921, broken E Obv

Interesting!!

I hesitate to say the coin isn't real. But it is very odd that metal flow lines appear to extend into the area where the missing part of the E is.

I'd like to hear what @messydesk and @vampicker have to say about this.
