Re: Another 78-s v96 issue

I have added it to the "First Year Morgans - Basic" set. Please note that when you ask for something to be fixed in a set - using the sets exact name really helps me find it so I can work on the issue. Thanks - VAMon....

Re: What happen to 1878 S Vam 96?

I took a look - it had not been removed from the registry - only from the set. It is in the set now. As for the POP - I can not help there. It looks like none were ever entered. I do not have one so I cant "get the ball rolling" on this one.

I believe picture size is limited to 2MB@. It sounds like perhaps your picture exceeded that?

Re: Help with 1886-P (Eight in Denticles)

I have started a VAMworld page for this and added it to the SSDC registry - you are ready to register your discovery. Congratulations!

? RE; 1879-S VAM-129

My 1879-S VAM-129 is the discovery piece but it has a spot of PMD in a bad place. If you have one of these - please look at the R in AMERICA and see if it has the bump coming out of the bottom of the left foot (see purple arrow on photo). Thanks! @Vam-mysterio @VamHelsing

Re: Registering finds in the 'wild' versus bought attributed coins?

I have no way of telling which of my VAMs was caught in the wild & which came with an attribution. I will say that I have a crap load of each! There are some memorable finds and a great many that came to me misattributed. Most of the coins I get lately are misattributed as I am now looking for more ...

Re: An 03-O find honoring @LateDateMorganGuy - and a story I'd like to share

Yes - the 64 is mine. I have only had 1 more in hand and it was well before "its discovery" - I was not able to own that one. Worked out well 4 me to wait.

That is a tough coin for sure! Welcome to the club - there are not many of us that can say we have one of them! Grade?

Re: 1900 p.... VAM-Misstrike- Error- What is it?

I would opt for ANACS. Most likely to get it right. PCGS (in my opinion) would take a glance at it and dismiss it outright. I would really like to hear ANACS verdict.....

Re: Calling ALL VAMMers - Rotated dies

when entering a coin into the registry there is an option (now) to check for rotated die nd how much rotation. additionally there is a way to modify an exsisting entry.

Re: Help with 1886-P (Eight in Denticles)

It may also be a good idea to remember that when the dies were made it was very often the case that drinking beer was safer that drinking water. The practice of drinking beer at lunch was very common and did not carry the same stigma that we assign to said practice today.

Re: Calling ALL VAMMers - Rotated dies

The VAMworld page is great but I know there are some that are not on same - that is why I am "crowd sourcing". There are no Peace dollars on that page and I know of no rotated Peace dollars... I have no idea of who Mike C. is or how to get a hold of him....
