Mr. VanAllen has passed the torch to three of the most respected VAMmers in the VAM community. This is a great time to be a VAMmer.
I may not be the best, but I do not know anyone better.

You're pretty close on our haircuts, anyway.

I agree. Leroy is transitioning it correctly, where it can grow with continuity. I am very encouraged by this announcement. I dived into VAM World just last year and these are the three individuals who have most advanced my knowledge and understanding.

Sounds interesting and fun at the same time. Hopefully all the logistics can be ironed out and presented at the VAM Thing. A moderated Q&A session at the VAM Thing might be something to consider for the agenda. Not sure if it is possible, but a presentation from Michael Fey about the acquisition might also be interesting. So much to think about.

Best of luck on this new endeavor! Can't wait to see what happens to the first submission of 100 1921-Ps :popcorn:
That is funny!

I have no doubt that new attributions going into the future will workout fine.

Leroy told me a number of years ago about the sheer number of all his existing print photographs and how he never had the time to search through them or digitize them. Perhaps now that Dr. Fey is the owner, a new wealth of existing information will become available in the future as well.

I am excited to hear that the dynamic duo of JR and JB will be handling Morgan Vam attributing going forward. Thanks to both of you guys for stepping up Big Time to continue providing us collectors your years of help and guidance, while working full time for your companies. I am amazed at how you both are able to wear multiple hats in your careers. I am thrilled to continue this hobby with knowing that you three will be in charge. God bless you all.

Somehow I get the feeling that the threshold for new listings may be higher, meaning not so liberal. :?: But I have been wrong before.

You won't be wrong here. There will be a certain amount of "burden of proof" on the submitter that a new listing is necessary. This especially comes into play where minor die stages are concerned. This will be hashed out among the three of us and proper guidance will be given in the submission guidelines.

On a slightly different track, will there be any review of seemly "dead" listings where a single coin might have been attributed way back?

Do you plan any review of VAM designations and some type general cleanup of the listings?
