Been there, done that.
But oh my... for a moment isn't the excitement spectacular!
When in doubt... don't.

Ray,
You showed the reverse of the VAMs 44, 45, and 101.
Did you look at the obverse to confirm it is a VAM-45 and not VAM-101?

More like a swing and a pop foul into the stands, but, yeah, it's always a shame to not see wide reeds with this reverse.

Lee I did check, it’s a 45. I will have to check my very first 45 as I attributed it prior to 101.

I know the feeling well. I think I have a post somewhere about my 45 that I was oh so giddy about until I looked at the reeds :cry:

On a side note, I was in a similar situation at the Dalton show a few weeks back and hit a MASSIVE score in the first few hours of the show before I had to get an emergency flight back home a few hours later due to my father having a huge "saddle" pulmonary embolism. Not ready to share it yet but you'll know when I do :mrgreen:
