Made it back from FUN

Post by vampicker » Sun Jan 13, 2019 3:55 am

It's a shock to go from 60's and palm trees to snow, but I'm back in Ohio. The FUN show was great and I got to rub elbows with a great many people. Some of it has already been posted, but I'd like to thank everyone that attended my presentation and VAM Thing afterwards. Well, almost everyone - somehow I got stuck with the foul and tacky bottle of cologne from the blackmail auction.
I'll post my 12 for 2019 list in a separate thread tomorrow and add it to our page here, but the set is already live in the SSDC Registry with a couple of sets working.

I did buy several dollars at the show, mostly they were already attributed.
1926-S VAM 3F in a Redfield red holder. Crazy polishing on the reverse and underappreciated
1922-D VAM 4 Top 50 PCGS 62
1880 VAM 57 PCGS 53
1883-O VAM 33A ICG 65 Probably going to send this to Leroy for revision based on a theory I'm floating.
1889-O VAM 1A2 PCGS F15
1901-S VAM 10 NGC AU 55 Was on my list a couple of years back, finally got one
1901-O VAM 45 raw with a fair amount of arm twisting
and for my finale, I ran into a 78-CC GSA soft pack AU 50ish with a VAM 19B. Previously unknown is GSA. My set just got even harder to catch.

In addition to $200/night hotel rooms, the possibility of getting stuck with that thing for a 3rd time takes some of the edge off my disappointment at not attending FUN this year. :D
When in doubt... don't.

I was sharing them with whomever wanted one on Saturday afternoon. Two "best pickles ever" comments. They were really good.

Keep it open on your desk and maybe it will evaporate, or ward off evil sprits.

I hated to give up that 1901o v45. It was the nicest one I have found.

Yeah, and it took some persuading. At least it went to a good home.
