Re: Grade Opinions

Just be careful with conservation of a PL coin; my V227.2 64PL horror story be a testament!

1878-CC VAM 19A

Glad everyone was napping last weekend; picked up an (unattributed) 1878-CC VAM 19A in PCGS-MS63 plastic with a Buy-it -now Grey sheet price. :). PS I'm trying to add some CCs in an effort to complete an entire 78 date VAM set. And the hunt goes on...

Re: VAM Thing FUN 2019

Does not look good for me; planned plant outage with vacation blackout period to include FUN show time frame...there's an outside chance I could make 1 -1 1/2 days, but won't know until later this year.

ANACS grades posted (all 1878 model year)

Stuff I had accumulated mainly this year; took advantage of recent ANACS $10 special. I sent a few to questionable ones to get my 10 coin quota and everything got net graded. Oh well. But...some keepers! 1878-S V86 die 2; MS 62 (found at a local show in a short stack of raw unattributed 78-S) - hole...

Caveat Emptor!

Caveat Emptor (buyer beware) Buy the COIN, NOT the holder! Terms we've all heard. So, let me tell you of a big disappointment I've had , but lesson learned, so with a TWIST, SUBMITTER BEWARE!! Bought a toned coin from auction; graded and authenticated as MS 64PL. VAM previously unknown PL; also a re...

Re: 1878 8 TF VAM 14.15!

Bona fide 14.15 with die crack thru right side of 'P'

I'll bet it was borderline unc. before being encased in the bowl. Well polished now, but love it.

On a side note, I've got a similar piece with a 78-P long nock VAM 82.

1878 8 TF VAM 14.15!

Probably not what you were expecting, but for a 78-P nut like myself, it fits in well with the great room decor.
