Re: Stupid Questions from the new guy!

Welcome to your next step down the path to being self-committed! New to VAMs, you say? Wanna learn what to look for, you say? Welp, there is a set out there that I believe was created for just such an occasion, but I just can’t recall what it was called. I think there was a guide published for it an...

Re: Covid Shots

If you have a chance to get the others I would take it and not wait. One unintended benefit that my wife and I didn't realize was anxiety. There was a big feeling of relief once we got the shot. Except the British Astra Zeneca one. That one has only a 65% effective rate. Chris, believe it or not 65...

Re: 1879-S Rev of 1878

I wonder if the stop/start between Jan.-Feb. was someone, on one end or the other, saying don't make any more dollars until the new dies arrive? I think it's interesting that, as far as I know, none of the rev. 78 VAMs have die breaks... does that mean they were all still "viable" dies when they wer...

Re: 1897-O $1 PCGS AU-53 VAM-6A

Dennis, that is a legit 6a, but it still has some life to reach 6b. If memory serves, I think the one in the book is just slightly more advanced than this, but still pre-6b. Your stage is where I'd call them desirable, at least to me. The OP coin looks earlier from what I can see, but will wait for ...

Re: ANACS Getting tough

Yeah, ANACS has been tough since they went to the yellow labels. My rule is if you’re looking to market a coin send it to the other guys for a “commercial grade”, but if it’s for your own collection and you wanna KNOW the coin earned the grade ANACS is the only choice. BTW, I’ll try to get you some ...
