Re: 1878-S VAM-96

:(

I agree with Lew; totally different; I pulled my specimen last time there was a question about this die variety!

Re: Seeking some logic regarding 1878 VAM80A / VAM80B listings.

Photo OP needed so 80 and 80B pages can be properly updated. Will put on the to-do list…

Never realized just how tough this one is. Good eye, Lew. Thanks for sharing.
Tough is an understatement …only came across two impaired low grade examples in several years of looking thru 78-s dollars…

1878VAM 221B

If you consider the SSDC registry VAM 221B is downright scarce, if not rare. The neat part of this die marriage are the 4 distinct states, EDS, which is listed separately, no clash, 1-clash, and 2-clash. I have all 4 in my set, but have had to settle on high grade AU die states 3 & 4 for a long time...

Re: Seeking some logic regarding 1878 VAM80A / VAM80B listings.

Polish lines aren’t present on EDS coins either; yes very 2-sided PL too. I’ll bet the pop in the registries are way wrong too; but hey generally the TPGs just know VAM 80 and don’t know suffixes exist. Also, many collectors will take a holder attribution at face value and never look under the hood ...

4th star looks like point is broken; intact on 111.

Tough coin in any grade; nice find. I just looked at a raw one on hand and agree with three!

Re: Seeking some logic regarding 1878 VAM80A / VAM80B listings.

Yes good luck finding a no-crack; no polish 80; Uber rare IMO; problem is it’s easy to find a VAM 80 attribution on a holder. SO most 80s are really 80Bs; and they are really common and often PL. The sequence goes 80-80B-80A; LDS 80As with blobs of metal at T of UNITED are tough to come by but yes a...

Re: Clear explaination for thin or tapered coins

Good read; I see the letter was from 1873; guess the OE was overlooked in 1879, hence the example I have :roll:

Re: PCGS Frustration

PCGS Glam shot; yes this coin has been posted before (here) with my so so iPhone photo. I brought it to a FUN show several years ago in its native (regular) PCGS holder so some have seen it in hand, but now it’ll have the Error designation that I was wanting. I bought as a dropped letter many years ...

Re: PCGS Frustration

Progress!

Both remaining orders are in Encapsulation status!

BTW, took advantage of a slab error not noticed by the dealer; bought a ‘62 1878 V203 slabbed as Rev of 1878. That happens quite often IMO. :shock:

Re: O/T Taxman

Well did some more looking and it looks like state where I’ve had recent purchases sent (different from legal residence) DOES add 8%. Shame on me. Oh well. No more purchases sent there… :roll:
