Re: What exactly is a die study?

Yes; the die studies help further this Art of vam collecting and yes studies must continue to help the sport going forward, however, studies IMHO are for those who have patience & experience along with attention for minute detail of which many of us dont.

Silver then vams value upwards??????????

Nice to see Gold & Silver pushing higher rather than stagnated Gold at 10 month high - Bought my silver a ways back & what i thought was way cheap This gold push higher is already being reflected by higher Numismatic U.S. gold, especially Indians 2 1/2-$5- $10. China seems to be safe haven buying. S...

Re: what does restoration cost at PCGS?

NGC came up with a NCS service- IMHO- Just another source of revenue & a submitters nightmare in general. Then to compete PCGS developed a conservation program fee based on coins value. This all IMHO to help propel profits & make stockholders happy LOL Many coins in circ cond will end up terrible - ...

Re: INTEREST/RARITY

Thanks JB; For the answers to many of us here on R & I Imho- It is a guide that is not very accurate & can be quite useless /misleading on certain Vams. Many others /especially more commons , the R & I seem to fit properly I am in the camp that somehow these numbers need periodic review & change as ...

We west coasties need all help we can muster- East coast has many more collectors and honestly, in general east coast collectors are much more dedicated to Numismatics.
