:popcorn: Its all total insanity; This 91-o 9B R-7 purchased Flea Bay
None at SSDC!!
Yrs of VW member checking/looking for it
Few would have patience/craziness LOL
Who would think after all thousands vams
found that this cud job be so elusive
Super Kudos -crazy wild

Then!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
79 S- vam 77 with a bazziion PUP errors
Rev 78- PAF-Flat Breast- Engrained wing
9 upper TF- Acid treat dies-
I have neither the patience nor desire to
committ the time necessary for finds like
these 2 rarities.

Congrads guys- I will make the appointments
for both of you at your local shrink. LOL
This is what makes VW so great a site

Great coin, great story. I can relate. Just got a '92 S and went through the waiting process.

Update on an old story.... finally sent the 9B in to ANACS for certification. Cleaned G4 - about what I expected. But it did fill one of the missing slots in my set and is currently the only one listed. Amazing for as tough as it was to find one, it raised my 91 o set score by 16 points Just glad to fill that open spot.

Brilliant retrospective and update. Yet, my wife is unhappy with you because your story and success are fueling my addiction, er, interest in history.
