I just got a couple dozen coins from GC for stickers last week. They're heading back to them tomorrow, so I'll be able to see what the turnaround is from me shipping to them going live.

Just noting one of the current G.C. listings possibly has an incorrect VSS label on it... the 1891 o VAM 8a is stickered as 1890 o VAM 2a2 on reverse. Appears it and the 1890 o VAM 2a2 got the stickers mixed up.

Thank you
I will contact them and have the photos corrected.
It has been a learning process for them to deal with VSS attribution stickers.
I think they run a very good business. As with anything new, there are growing issues to get everything running smoothly.
At least I know I don't get everything correct the first time or two.
But in the end, they get it done. I plan on sending them more coins in the not-too-distant future.
Thanks again

5 days until the sales are final.

I'm surprised that more people haven't tracked the unattributed 78-S Long Nock or the 88-O oval O. They may not be the highest grade, but then again Long Nocks are not usually very highly graded.
There are some really super buys on some really good VAMs at this point.
A lot more than I am showing links for.

Thank you for joining the thread. Your attribution skill is fantastic.

Yes, we both know that is a VAM-26.
I'm sorry that my point wasn't clear. Great Collections will not list a VAM without a TPG attribution on the label or a VSS attribution sticker. So, this VAM-26 is not listed as such. Just like the 88-O oval O is not listed as a Top 100.
I thought that seeing the reverse photo would get more people tracking that Long Nock than was occurring. It is very easy to see that is a Long Nock if one just looks at the reverse photo.
There are several good Listed VAMs at really good prices at this point. Hopefully they will go up some more. :)
Time will tell.

My attributed Saint-Gaudens double eagles should go up in the next few days. :)
