A pair of Scarface 88-O from last night

Post by vampicker » Fri Jun 15, 2018 1:03 pm

The Heritage session last night had a couple of attributed VAM 1B (stage 8) example sell.
This 64 CAC slab seems like a fairly impressive result

It makes the 62 from the lot just before it seem like a relative bargin

Nice results, indeed, and not even the latest die stage.

I was stunned at the horrible strike on the 64... and thus its grade and the final price.

And I was so surprised by the low price on the 62 that I placed a bid.
When in doubt... don't.

I seem to recall a story about these Scarface pieces with the circle of toning on the reverse. Something like these were mounted on wood as part of a clock. The maker just happened to pick a couple of rolls of these for his work. Does this ring a bell with anyone else?

It sounds familiar, but I might be thinking of some other series of dollars that were mounted that way for some reason.

I ran into this earlier today in the Chrome browser on my PC, but it works on the Chrome browser on my phone. I have a note to myself to find out why. Try right-clicking or ctrl-click and opening in a new tab.

If it's the story I think you are talking about. I had a few of those pieces. The link on VW is from me dated May 7, 2012 and the post title is 'A Good Day'. It has pics of the coins... :)

The same for Firefox. This is why I requested a few weeks ago that the link from the VW10 MB to the VW20 MB point to the literal url. There are many quirks that are corrected by using the literal url to enter the VW20 MB. The literal url must display in the browser location field. Copy the literal url below and paste into a new tab or a new browser window location field and the HA links work.

Middle click the "Literal URL" link below and a new tab will open automatically.
Literal URL to post containing HA links: Works when clicking HA link.
Literal URL to enter VW20 MB
VW10 Left Bar link: Blank page when clicking HA link.

I re-read the post. It appears Brian and Logan know the story and Logan must have written something up. I'm hunting for it!... :)

I can RC and "Open link in new tab" and see it.

I can only log in via a private window/browser with Safari.

The lack of a valid Certificate for this "UNSECURE Site, is the issue.

Please update and verify/validate this sites certificate, and that should fix these security related connection issue.



Man that 62 is baggy, prolly would have graded 64, if it wasn't such a high dollar variety...LOL
