Re: 1921 P Morgan VAM 3A1B/3A1C

If it has the gouge from the tail it is either 3A1C, 3A2, 3A3 or 3A4.

bashing PCGS yet AGAIN

Here is a 3rd example of a 1921-D that PCGS has attributed as a VAM 1A TRU_T that is so not it's ridiculous. The first two I showed in recent months were jokes because they both still very clearly have most of the S showing: http://www.vamworld.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6439&hilit=PCGS But this ...

Re: 1882 GSA Carson city grand snake history.

The NGC site has a cert. lookup function, and closeups of this coin were available. I'm curious what made them certain this is an 1882-CC, since the tops of the numerals are so distorted.

Re: Very Rare 1882 CC Morgan Off-Center

Saying "WOW!!" seems so ridiculously inadequate... but I just don't know what else to say. :o

If I've done my math correctly, the dimensions of the NGC holder are 8-3/8" wide by 10-3/8" tall.

Re: 1882-o 38-b value

They are not particularly rare. I see lots of folks trying to squeeze big prices out of them. And it does happen sometimes, which I think speaks volumes about how dangerously clueless some buyers are. For example: -- an ANACS-63 sold for $210 on eBay in Feb. '21 -- a PCGS-63 sold for $71 on eBay in...

No. It's circulated. A nice AU....But I'm a very tough grader.
AU58 was my opinion when I saw it.

Re: 1880 VAM 6, not VAM 8 Ears - Right?

Just a follow up - this coin is back up on EBay right now. (I returned it previously with explanation showing it was incorrectly attributed.) I just contacted seller, who said they had sent this coin back to NGC and questioned the VAM 8 assignment. NGC re-holdered it and returned it, again as a VAM...

Re: A very annoying 1921-P

The reverse is strongly clashed, although there is zero evidence of it on the obverse, which perhaps means it was polished away and thus explains why the obverse has a PLish look. clash God.jpg clash left wreath hi.jpg clash left wreath lo.jpg clash right wreath.jpg Speaking of the obverse, the near...

A very annoying 1921-P

Here is yet another 1921-P (D2 reverse) whose VAM identity is resisting all of my charm and ability to locate – which happens a bit too often when you look at too many of ‘em. Any help or thoughts would be much appreciated. A big part of the problem is this coin has a ton of scribbles that go in dif...

Congrats and thanks for the tutorial
I am happy you found it.

Is that the one you have been looking for ?

Alas, no. The one I still need is the 1568, which is identical to the 1567 except it has an 8.

Thanks for the identification, very helpful ! What does make VAMs desirable ?
