Re: 1886 S VAM 4 Listable Break

Not the first I’ve been VAM wrong. I’m sure it won’t be the last.
Thank you JB & JR for all of your input on VW.

Re: 1886 S VAM 4 Listable Break

It looks like the date in this post has a slant to it, like the VW photos of VAMs 2 & 3. The VW photo of VAM-4 looks like the one is slightly higher creating a level date.

Looks like a planchet defect below the E to me.

What about the VAM JB?
I’m not feeling VAM-4.

The very first post in this thread tells you that it is a 1891-O VAM-20.

Re: 1879 CC Unique?

Is there a point on the coin you would like me to try and get a clearer picture of to help with your research? @ShamShield First, I didn't mean to say VAM-2A in my last message, but VAM-2B. Second, I looked closer at your photos and no longer think it is just a 2B. It is hard with the condition of ...

Re: 1879 CC Unique?

How about LDS VAM 7 . The little things . Tom, My opinion is that it is not a LDS VAM-7. I’ve been following these for awhile. As the VAM-7 die progresses, the clashing becomes less noticeable than this coin and a die chip develops in the lower part of the G in God. Also, the EDS “in between” coin ...

Re: 1879 CC Unique?

I do think that it is likely a VAM-2A.
Due to conditions, it may be hard to see good VAM details.

As far as value, it looks low grade and harshly cleaned. That really hurts the value. But at least it is a 79-CC.

Re: 1882 O..VAM-29A......Super CD.

Hi Steve,
I have a few 29As. My best is a MS-65, like my 38B.
I have found it harder to locate a MS-65 in 29A than the 38B. I passed on a few 38B MS-65s before I won mime. The others went way too high for me.
Keep up the good work.

Re: 1892 CC VAM 2 or 2a?

I can only say that my coin was not listable. It was the first one that I could find with the UR crack. I wanted one to submit with the 2A.
I don’t know what the experts would say about your coin.
Good luck
I’m always looking for another 2A. 😀

Re: 1892 CC VAM 2 or 2a?

Thanks for responses. I agree it’s not 2a since cud is key attribute. It does seem like something is missing, unless all “V2 CC tilted left” reverses have the U-R break. If so I’d think it would be in the description. That is a substantial break not to be listed. Should there be a V2 “no break” and...

Thanks for reminding me of the basics.

Re: 1892 CC VAM 2 or 2a?

I am the one that made the submission to LVA. He called this a VAM-2. My VAM-2 was a XF-45. I have been trying to find an MS but every one I have seen has gone way over Graysheet, so I did not get them. I have doubts that it is the same die pair as the original VAM-2. The date crack looks a lot like...

VAM 2A1 ..

Tom,
I think his coin is the other one in the post.
Not the 2A1 that he is showing as a comp.
I’m not much help on the Peace dollars.

Re: 1921 vam 45

IMO no premium
Basically Graysheet.
VAM-101 is less common than 45 and I don’t think that it should have any premium either.
Only the bid dog 44 should get a premium.
