Two recent "privately made" picks

Post by dcarr » Sun Sep 08, 2019 5:35 am

I hadn't found any of these "in the wild" for a while, but just came across two notable specimens.

First is an 1893-O VAM-8 that I bought for about the same price as a typical 1893-O in this grade. This is only the second 1893-O VAM-8 that I am aware of (I also found the first one). It is identifiable by the doubled denticle below the "L" of DOLLAR. It is also noteworthy that it is in a fairly recent NGC F12 holder !

Second is this high-grade 1901-O VAM-60 which I acquired for a nominal price ($33) from a high-volume "professional" coin seller. This particular privately-made VAM seems to have the highest population of known AU58 and UNC specimens (apparently 3 now).
