VAM - Updated Price Guide

At F.UN.. there seem to be a lot of buzz at the board meeting about an Updated Price Guide.
Anyone have a status update?

Thanks,
Andy

Great question, Andy. I think we have more than at FUN, because John was working on it after the meeting, but I haven't heard a peep in a few weeks. Let's see what I can dig up.

If anyone putting the guide together wants my opinion on values for 1902-Os or 1904-Os, let me know.

We will need constant input. It is the only way that we can keep the guide current. I did get more input today and we are getting closer all the time. Much of the common pricing of VAMs is done, we just have to finish putting in the ones with higher premiums.

I made a mistake , I picked up a Morgan : Dollar a funny looking 1921-P B-2 .. It looks to have double ear and
cotton leafs .. Also picked a 1922-D VAM 19A maybe AU 55 .. low in population . This is one time the guide was not
around to help .
I will be looking for help with the new Morgan , I will try and attribute this first . The hunt is part of the FUN . :mrgreen:

Glad to see that the price guide is near. I believe interest in VAMs is growing and a price guide would spur much greater interest in my opinion.

It is in progress. I am exceedingly busy these days but it is coming together and we will be sure it is authoritative with the appropriate inputs. I know the market is floundering because of the long lack of one. (I just lost a fistful of dollars selling a one grade below the top pop Top 100 PCGS VAM on eBay, no reserve, for under greysheet bid. Shouldn't happen. But the market has no credible guidance right now.) We have a number of very astute folks who know the real rarities, the real demands, and the long term trends. It is coming, but we want it to be right for everyone, buying and selling, out of the gate and not short of that standard because it is rushed.
