Large Vam Collection on Heritage

Post by Shyatt01 » Tue Nov 16, 2021 5:49 pm

Hi all,

I'm a long time VAM collector (30 plus years), and I'm selling my collection through Heritage, in two "waves". I bought Mark Kimpton's (Mr. Clashed Die :) Discover coin collection years ago. This includes several of the plate coins from his Morgan Clashed die book. That collection will be up in March of next year.

All of my other VAMS (that I've picked, purchased, or traded for over 30 years) are up for sale in December. There are 130 coins in this collection, including some hard to find Morgan VAMs, and some major conditional rarities. I have the number 2 Clashed Die collection in SSDC (used to be #1, but Lee really stepped it up , and edged me out, the rat bastard :) .

Here is a link that shows all of my consigned calls for the December sale.

If you have any questions about any of the coins listed, feel free to DM me, or you can email me at SteveHyatt@hughes.net
Regards,
Steve Hyatt

Keep on bidding Dennis! :lol:

I'm seeing a lot of $1 bids. Of course the action will heat up (hopefully at lot ) as it get's closer to December 15, and there will be a "live" bidding round at the end. I wish everyone well in their quest to get some nice upgrades, but I don't have any reserves, so I really hope none of those $1 bids hold to the end :).

Hmmm. As an FYI, the listing for the 1878 VAM 44 (King of VAMS) which I have for sale isn't completely correct. This is a VAM 44A, the clashed version of the 44, which is even rarer than the 44. It has clashed letter details on BOTH sides of the coin; a strong N next to the neck, weak "s,t" in the hair vee on the obverse, and the "M" on the reverse above "God". The discover piece for the 44A has some proof like characteristics, which suggests that the dies clashed very early in the product run. I can tell this is one bitch of a VAM to find. I just emailed Heritage dinging them on this. We will see whether or not they make the correction in the description.

Today is the day ! The live bidding for this auction starts at 6:00 PM central time today. Be there, or miss out on the chance to scoop up some great VAMs to upgrade your collection. If you have never participated in a Heritage live session, the action is fast and furious. It typically takes 30 – 40 seconds from beginning to end for one coin, so if you are interested in getting a particular coin, don’t dink around or “poof” it’s gone.

As a reminder, here is the link for the 130 coins which I have in today’s auction. (Some other folks from VAMWORLD also have some nice ones on offer in this auction)

https://coins.ha.com/c/my/consignments. ... us=current

Over 30 of these are “TOP POPULATION” ! And several of those are either 1 of the 2 top pop or the ONLY one in the top pop grade. If you are working on any registry sets, you ought to take a close look at what’s on offer.

My coins include a nice selection of Clashed VAMS, including:
1878 8TF $1 Doubled Reverse, Clashed 'In' & 'st', VAM-2A, MS62 NGC.  This is the first coin in the “Super CD” set
1878 8TF $1 Weak LIB, Clashed 'n', VAM-22A, MS63 PCGS This one is part of the Hot 50 set. It’s a pretty coin; I’ve thought about resubmitting to try for a MS64 in the past, but never got around to it
1878 7/8TF $1 7/5 Strong, Broken Star, VAM-39A, MS63 PCGS – This one is part of the Hit List 40 set. The dumb asses listed it as a 39, but it’s a 39A. Another “really nice for the grade” coin with lovely toning.
ANOTHER 1878 7/8TF $1 7/5 Strong, Broken Star VAM-39A, MS63 PCGS. A Hit List 40 Variety. They did list this one correctly
1878 7/8TF $1 Strong Clashed Obverse, VAM-42A, MS61 ANACS. A Super CD Variety.
1878 7TF $1 Reverse of 1878, 7/4TF, Clashed 'n', VAM-41C, MS65 NGC, “The bearded lady”. A Super CD Variety. I’ve picked several of these over the years in lower grades. MS 65 is tough to find. MS 65 is “top pop” in the SSDC registry.
1878 7/8TF $1 Triple Blossoms, Clash, VAM-44A, AU55 PCGS. A Top 100 Variety. The King of VAMs AND the King of Clashed VAMs !
This coin is a very solid AU 55 and is visually appealing; unless you are willing to “pay up” big time for a BU coin (IF you can find one for sell), it is as good as you can get to fill this open slot in your collection. Current bid is $1550, which is quite a bit less than I paid for it. There are 14 of these listed in the SSDC registry IN TOTAL, ranging from MS 01 to MS 61. Get it while you can or live the rest of your days in regret :).
1878 7TF $1 Reverse of 1878, Line Under 8, VAM-84A, MS65 PCGS. Heritage listed this as an VAM 84. It is an 84A, which means it has the clashed E on the reverse (much tougher to find than the plain ole VAM 84). Only 7 of these in MS65 in the SSDC registry, with only one coin having a higher grade.
1878 7TF $1 Reverse of 1878, Gouge in IB, Clashed "n", VAM-131C2, MS63 PCGS. Interestingly, MS 63 is TOP POP for this variety in SSDC.
A second 1878 7TF $1 Reverse of 1878, Gouge in IB, Clashed "n", VAM-131C2, ALSO MS63 PCGS.  Buy them both, so they won’t get lonely.
1878 7TF $1 Reverse of 1879, Short Leaf, Clashed "n", VAM-203A, AU50 PCGS. This is a Top 100 and Super CD variety. Current bid is $47. People, show a little respect! This VAM is a BITCH to find! If you have one in your Top 100 set, you are an exception, and good on ya mate.
1878-S $1 Denticle Clash, VAM-17A MS63 PCGS. This is a Hit List 40 and Super CD variety. I love the denticle clashes.
1880 $1 Checkmark, Clashed 'st', VAM-11A, MS64 PCGS. This is a Hot 50 and Super CD variety.
1880 $1 Doubled 1-80, Clashed "n" & "st", Reverse M, VAM-24A, XF45 ANACS. A Super CD Variety.
1880 $1 Doubled Date, Clashed "In," VAM-32A MS64 NGC. PCGS This is a Super CD variety
1880 $1 Partial E Reverse, VAM-39A, AU55 PCGS. This is a HOT 50 and a WOW variety
1880 $1 Doubled 1-80, Clashed "n" & "t", Doubled Wreath, VAM-57, XF45 ANACS. This is the Discovery Piece, which I bought from Brian Raines. (I paid a lot more than $46, which is the current bid :) )
1880-CC $1 8 Over Low 7, Ear & Clash, VAM-6C, AU50 NGC. A Top 100 Variety.
1880-CC $1 Dash 8, Clashed 'n', VAM-3A, MS63 NGC. This coin is a Super CD Morgan Vam.

1882-O $1 Doubled Date, Clashed G & t, VAM-29A, AU53 PCGS This is a Super CD VAM

A 2nd 1882-O $1 Doubled Date, Clashed "G" & "t", VAM-29A, AU53 PCGS. Still a Super CD VAM

A 3rd 1882-O $1 Double Date, Clashed G & t, VAM-29A, AU55 PCGS. Super CD

A 4th 1882-O $1 Doubled Date, Clashed "G" & "t", VAM-29A, MS61 PCGS. Don’t let the fact that there are 4 of these in this auction fool you. I’ve been collecting CDs for over 30 years, and these 4 are the sum total of this RARE variety. (I traded for two of them, and picked the other 2 after looking at many thousands of 1882-O s. )

1882-O $1 Doubled 82, Clashed Obverse & Reverse, Reverse Die Break, VAM-38A, MS63 ANACS

1882-O $1 Doubled 82, Clashed "G" & "t", VAM-38B, AU53 PCGS. 

1882-O/S $1 Flush & Clash, VAM-3A, XF45 PCGS. This bad girl is rare. There is a total of ZERO in any uncirculated grade.

1883-O $1 Clashed E Reverse, Clashed D & O Obverse, VAM-22A, MS62 PCGS. This is a Hot 50 and Super CD coin.

1883-O $1 Partial E on Reverse, VAM-22A, MS63 PCGS. This is a Hot 50 and Super CD coin. The 22A is significantly rarer than the 1883-O 36A, with which is is often confused.

1883-O $1 Partial E on Reverse, VAM-36A,MS64 NGC.  Hot 50 and Super CD

1883-O $1 Partial E on Reverse, VAM-36A, MS65 PCGS. Hot 50 and Super CD

1884 $1 Partial E Reverse, VAM-2A, MS63 PCGS. A Hot 50 and Super CD Variety

A 2nd 1884 $1 Partial E Reverse, VAM-2A, MS64 PCGS. A Hot 50 and Super CD Variety.

A 3rd 1884 $1 Partial E Reverse, VAM-2A, MS65 PCGS. A Hot 50 and Super CD Variety.  Again, don’t assume that because I have 3 of these, they aren’t scarce. 30 plus years, and I did a LOT of trading with other CD collectors over the years, so I accumulated good “trade bait”.

1885 $1 Dash 8, Clashed "In" & "st", VAM-4A, MS62 PCGS A Super CD variety

1885 $1 Doubled 85, Clashed 'n', VAM-5A, MS64 PCGS

1885 $1 Doubled 5, Clashed "n", "ust", & "e", VAM-23A, MS62 PCGS A Super CD coin

1886 $1 3+2 Clashed Reverse, VAM-1C, MS66 NGC. A Hot 50 Variety and Super CD coin. This one is actually a 3+3 Clash (the EDS of this VAM) , which is even more dramatic than the 3+2 class.

1886 $1 3+2 Clashed Reverse, VAM-1C, (also an EDS 3 + 3 clahs) MS64 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. A Hot 50 and Super CD Variety. There is a grand total of 1 in DMPL in the SSDC registry, this one!
1886-O $1 Clashed E Reverse, VAM-1A, XF45 ANACS. A Top 100 Variety
1886-O $1 Clashed E, VAM-1A, Top-100, AU53 PCGS

Some interesting “Detailed” coins which are probably going to go pretty cheap:
1878 8TF $1 Spiked A, VAM-14.5, -- Scratched, Cleaned -- ANACS. XF40 Details.
1878 7/8TF $1 Strong Clashed Obverse, VAM-42A, -- Cleaned -- ANACS. MS60 Details. A Super CD Variety. Current bid is $47 . Come on, man!
1878-CC $1 Medium CC, Clashed "G" & "t", VAM-7A, -- Cleaned -- ANACS. XF40 Details. This coin is part of the Kimpton 12 set. From the VAMWORLD description of this coin “Ask a collector or dealer what the rarest Carson City dollar is and you are likely to hear dates: 1879-CC, 1889-CC, 1893-CC. Talk with most VAM enthusiasts, and 1885-CC VAM 4 Hot-50 might come up and a few may bring up 1884-CC VAM 7A or 1890-CC VAM 9A. However, one of the best kept secrets is this coin, the 1878-CC VAM 7A, one of only four R-7 Carson City dollars. it is exceptionally rare.”
1878-S $1 Funky Feather, Tripled Eyelid, VAM-50, -- Cleaned -- ANACS. AU55 Details.
1878-S $1 Funky Feather, Tripled Eyelid, VAM-50, -- Cleaned -- ANACS. AU58 Details
1880-O $1 8 Over 7, Checkmark, VAM-21, -- Cleaned -- ANACS. AU53 Details
1887 $1 Clashed E Reverse, VAM-1B, -- Polished -- ANACS. XF45 Details. A Hot 50 Variety

A nice selection of “Not Clashed” VAMs:
1878 7TF $1 Reverse of 1878, Type One Obverse, Double Motto, VAM-100.2, MS63 NGC. This is a Top 100 variety. The 100.2 is significantly rarer than the 100.1.
1878 7TF $1 Reverse of 1878, Doubled Legs, VAM-31, MS64 NGC. OK, this is a pretty common VAM; but is an interesting example of the 7TFs
1878-S $1 Spaghetti Wings & Gouges, VAM-18, XF45 ANACS.  This coin is a WOW! and a Top 30 1878-S Morgan VAM Variety
1878-S $1 Dragon Scales, Engraved Wing Feather, Funky Feathers, VAM-36, MS61 ANACS. Die-
1878-S $1 Funky Feather, VAM-49, AU58 ANACS.
1878-S $1 Funky Feather, VAM-49, MS61 ANACS.
1879-S $1 Reverse of 1879, Doubled Date, VAM-18, MS64 PCGS.
1880-O $1 8 Over 7, Ear & Gouge, VAM-6A, AU58 NGC. A Top 100 Variety. 
1880-O $1 8 Over 7 Ear, VAM-6A, MS63+ PCGS. A Top 100 Variety. 
1880-O $1 Second 8 Over 7, Obverse Clash, VAM-6C, AU50 ANACS. A Top 100 Variety. 
1880-O $1 Hangnail, VAM-48, AU55 NGC. A Top 100 Variety. Current bid $20. Come on, man !
1880-O $1 Doubled 880, Die Scratch Wreath, VAM-53A, MS63 PCGS
1880-S $1 80/79 Spikes, VAM-12.2, MS64 NGC. PCGS
1882-CC $1 1 Below First 8, VAM-2, MS63 Prooflike NGC. 
1882-CC $1 Misplaced Date, VAM-2, MS64 Cameo Prooflike ANACS. A Hit List 40 Variety. 
 1882-O $1 Obverse Gouges, Clashed st, VAM-17A, MS63 PCGS. 
1882-O $1 Obverse Gouges, Die Break U, VAM-17B MS64 PCGS.

1883-O $1 O Over O Low, VAM-4, MS64 NGC

1884-O $1 Doubled 18, VAM-4, MS60 NGC

It looks like on your 1886 o vam 1A the XF is a two clasher and the Au-53 is a nice 7 clasher if I recall correct

The live auction was interesting. Thanks to everyone who bid: I hope you got the coins you were wanting. I'm going through and releasing all of these from my inventory in the SSDC registry (and that is a real pain in the butt. :)

LOL, all my beautiful sets evaporated like dust in the wind. I'm down to my Mark Kimpton Discovery coin collection. That will be going on auction in February 2022.

I was the under bidder on the 1886 P VAM 1C PCGS DMPL 64 but did win the 1889 P VAM 22 Obverse DMPL 63 which I think it was a bargain at that price.
Looks like you had for the most part a great auction sale.
I may not be the best, but I do not know anyone better.
