Re: 2021 D question

Technically, this is a significantly new hub, so from the standpoint of the VAM catalog, it would be an E reverse. Don't tell Russ.

Re: OT: sign-in issues with Firefox

Another possibility is that something got pushed onto your system that blocks URLs that start with http rather than https. Not sure if Firefox has such a feature, but if it got enabled, you should disable it. If you can use the wiki, then that isn't the problem.

Re: 1878 s vam 2

This variety comes up a lot with people that are new to VAMs. I added this text on the VAM 2 page, which applies here, as well: VAM 2 was first listed in the first VAM book in 1965 at the dawn of the study of Morgan dollar die varieties when the broken 'r' was noticed. Since then, closer examination...

Re: 2021 Peace Dollars

Well, I got nuthin'. Spent 20 minutes online and had them in the cart but couldn't check out. After 20 minutes I threw my hands up and said F'it and walked away. Not the end of the world, at least that is what I keep telling myself :oops: Update 1: Well, after my initial post above, my wife tells m...

Re: 2021 Peace Dollars

Tried getting 3, but lots of website problems during checkout. Eventually my cart went empty and I got a text saying I'd receive updates, but no order confirmation. Didn't dare try to order again in case I'd accidentally duplicate the order and get them all cancelled, so I ordered the Morgans, which...

Thanks all! Plus - I don't have to carry that darned gold painted typewriter around!

Yeah, a tough thing to explain as carry on luggage!
I could get it a leash, vest and call it a "Service Dog."
Just call it an emotional support typewriter.

Re: Back from Leroy - Major 1881-O Revisions

Getting VAM 77/77A killed as a duplicate of VAM 68 wasn't in the cards this time, but upon further review, I think it will be.

Re: Does 1921P VAM "20A EDS" = "VAM 20" ?

If you look at the text description of VAM 20, it clears up why there are differences among the three coins mentioned above. Trifling die markers aren't part of the VAM 20 description any more than they are for VAM 3. It's therefore no surprise that that VAM 20A is a different die pair that happens ...

How realistic to the original do they look?
We'll know for sure in October, but my impression is that the design will be well executed, but blurry compared with what we're used to (so I guess the 21-S will be most realistic :lol: ). The luster will also not be what we'd normally expect.

My order is still "processing" and my cc has not been hit yet. Now I am worried. I think I'm screwed. Credit cards won't get hit until October.

Mail them to NGC. If you have an account with them, include your account number on the cover letter you include with them.
