New VAM-e Sent - Michael Fey Buys LVA Assets

Post by messydesk » Fri Dec 03, 2021 2:28 am

A new VAM-e has been sent to SSDC members. As this is a press release, I am also including a link to it here. No doubt there will be questions. I will monitor (and moderate if necessary) this thread for questions and have Michael respond en masse to the questions. Anything I can answer at this time, I will. There will be additional press releases in the near future with more details.

:popcorn: WOW - Will be real interesting to see what effects this will
have for SSDC /vamworld in coming future
We knew something would come out as we all get older
but one single person, not SSDC or etc?
I think VW has been struggling to hold members and i
hope this does not deter further.
Like to know what members in the know think about this??

Correct. Don't send him anything. If he still has coins headed his way, he'll process them, but treat this as you would the usual end-of-year break.

Handling new VAMs will be done by a few people, and VW updates should be quicker as a result. There's a lot more to transferring stuff from Leroy than meets the eye. More news releases will follow over the next few weeks.

The end of an era for sure. Makes me wonder, what LVA will have to say when he sends my last package back. Do we know who will be assigning new VAMs in the future?

Fascinating! Very curious to see how this develops. Also very curious about my package now with LVA - hope it didn't get sold to Dr. Fey. Was just preparing what to send LVA next for a few potential 21P kills before year-end, but I guess I'll have to address those issues later with "the new guard" whomever that might be.

I also have a package that Leroy picked up at his PO in October.
Hope he has time to look at them.
So who is stepping up for this task?

I appreciate the honest news released on this site.
My greatest wish is that Leroy could find comfort in passing the torch to a qualified Numismatist and enjoy basking in a well deserved retirement. God Bless you Leroy. I regret that I have been too slow to tell you how much you have enriched my life.

The main surprise to me isn't that LVA might (finally) be relinquishing sole control of the catalog of Morgan and Peace die varieties, but that it is Dr. Fey who has made this acquisition. He's certainly very knowledgeable and has a strong numismatic history, but he's been so dormant for the past decade. I fondly recall the RCI VAM auctions of twenty years ago, but RCI hasn't updated its website since 2012. The "Inventory" link redirects to the eBay page, where there are only two dozen or so VAMs, most of which are, quite frankly, overpriced. I know the amount of time and effort that LVA put into maintaining and updating his catalog and wonder how that can be duplicated, either by one other person or as a distributed team. Time will tell...

This really is monumental to the VAM world! Leroy really has been wonderful to work with over the last many years - even when we did not agree! I do not know what the future holds for VAMs but it should prove interesting. THANK YOU & best wishes LVA!!!!

Bittersweet news! Congratulations to both Van Allen and Fey. Wishing Fey well as he takes up the torch and moves forward.

Amazing news.

I hope the Vam community stays unified.

As more news comes about, the future will unravel before us.
