Re: Best Place to Keep My Little Treasures

I wouldn't worry as much about the coins melting as I would the plastic around them melting and wrecking them. You could do what the Rabbit does and just carry them all around in your pocket. Also, note to self, JK lives in Oregon and has a yard and in that yard is buried treasure... let the games b...

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

I'm not one to assign any values, but I'll throw my two cents in the mix. Cracked VAM-6's are pretty common, but once you get to "legit" broke VAM-6a they get pretty scarce and close to or at VAM-6b they are VERY rare. So if you ask me if a nice late VAM-6a should carry a premium I say of course, it...

Re: Onliest I found so far

Thanks Brian, Felix and Lee! It seems that it may be time to bring back the old "name that VAM" game of the past. There are only like a (baker's) dozen E reverses fellas and only a few are P mints. I'll give you a couple better pics to help out... let us know when you got it! rojopick919203.JPG rojo...

Jason, just fell from the tree, I swear!
I decided to pare down my collection and only keep my SCD and WOW! sets, but, by default, that means I'm also keeping my E set, for which this one will fill the biggest remaining hole!

Re: New Grading Contest – Win a 1878 SFLN

Sheesh.
I may have a coin to offer for opinion, but I'm not sure when I'd get it graded... in fact I may post a couple just to help out.

TBH I think he can choose the person he wants to send a free coin to solely at his own discretion. I know it kind of sucks but, meh.

Re: 1880 P 1A series

IMO I think it might have been better to call it 1a1 LDS because anything short of the knob isn't nearly as desirable. In the market world a "no crack" would probably carry the same value as a "cracked, not broke".

Re: Nice $50 cherry!

Sweet find Chris! :D Unfortunately, I didn't start this out with my customary "WOW!"... I'll ask Russ, who got the 1a3 listed or JR/JB to support or refute me, but I believe the 1a3 stage starts when that Y in the crack in front of the cap band breaks out, so my opinion is you have a VERY NICE VAM-1...

Re: 1880 P 1A series

As much as it pains me to say, you pretty much got it right Rabbit. As for the discrepancy between VW and the registry, VW has to stick to the official listings while the registry can take some liberties. The registry mods apparently felt that the "cracked, but not broke" stage of the v1a was worthy...

Re: USPS Shipping What a Joke

No need to make it personal, sheesh. Though it would take little effort to gather materials for a Franklinator in my neighborhood.
As for the USPS, they're just making the post office great again, no malfeasance intended.
This board needs to adopt some form of sarcasm font.
