Re: Had a great day of hunting...

not sure if I have seen the 10a with the fully enclosed break where the die breaks join together. that is, if that is what I think I am seeing. I have found many vam 10a's but am not sure about one this late., That is what grabbed my eye. I just put together a shot of the break at the E on the reve...

Re: Had a great day of hunting...

I can see why thanks to those excellent photos! Looks like some really interesting metal flow effects. Oh great - another distraction to add to my "must learn about this" list. Nice scores, and great photos. Thanks! Those extreme metal flow lines and distortions are as addicting as crack. Thankfull...

I'm trying to skip the 1c3 all together and shoot for a 1c4 DC with full wingtip CUD :mrgreen:
Knowing your luck Chris, I would not doubt that happening. LOL :lol:

Re: Had a great day of hunting...

I love crumbled and sunken dies, so this 1889 VAM-30 LDS was an easy yes. I can see why thanks to those excellent photos! Looks like some really interesting metal flow effects. Oh great - another distraction to add to my "must learn about this" list. Nice scores, and great photos. Thanks! Those ext...

Nice picks Justin! You know I'm really liking that VAM-30. :)
I had a feeling you'd like that VAM-30 Dave. I really have you to blame for developing an love for them. I don't know why I am drawn to look of these dies, I just can't say no when I see one.

Thanks guys!! It's nice to get the opinions of the experts. I have only VW to look to for information. I just love these massive breaks like this.

Re: New top-pop for my other baby!.. VAM 106

I'm always watching for you. My highest grade remains my 106 which is an NGC 66. Not as nice as yours, but I'm happy with it.

Re: A nice little score...

Alway's, ALWAY'S use a poker face. I never tip my hand when cherrypicking a dealer. I always ask for a best price as well, because like you, it gives the dealer a fair chance to reexamine the coin, it also reinforces your play. Now when I get out to the car, then I'm as giddy as a school girl. LOL :...

1922-D VAM-10a possible new listing?

I came across this 1922-D Peace Dollar in a local dealers junk bin. The breaks all over the obverse and reverse just grabbed my attention. But what really got it was the break on the reverse at the E of UNITED, it looks to be severely displaced. I had a heck of a time trying to attribute it, but eve...

Had a great day of hunting...

I have not posted much in here, I need to start changing that. I had a fun day this past Thursday at a couple of my local shops. The first of the day was a pick I made on eBay that arrived in my PO box. Too bad it's been whizzed, but it still has great details remaining. 1878-S VAM-27 Long Nock, my ...
