1883 CC Vam 8?

Post by JmxTwiztid » Thu Oct 31, 2019 7:49 pm

Afternoon everyone!

I recently bought an 1883 CC GSA coin. This coin is very, very bright and shiny, my camera does not do it justice. Upon looking, the first thing I notice seems to be a CC/CC. I'm leaning towards Vam 8. What say you?

Also, I've never had a coin graded before but I'm thinking of submitting it to NGC, I like opinions on whether or not it makes sense to do that, and how to get the vam displayed on the label if I do get it graded, but it doesn't look like NGC will recognize any of the 1883 cc VAMs. How else could I have the vam displayed if I do have one?

I'll post some microscope pictures when I get off work. Due to the hard case, it makes seeing it difficult with my camera.

I also noticed it does have the neck die clash just like the VAM 5c does.

So many things going on with this coin. Doubling, small cud, etc. I ended up taking around 60 pictures under the scope.

Also, 5A doesn't show doubling and my coin has doubling from what I can tell. In letters as well as the design. Does that mean anything or is it still a 5A? Sorry for the dumb questions I just want to be absolutely sure.

Those are some great pictures. I think you would be disappointed by having it graded. I`d leave it UNC. in the GSA.

Understood. Thanks guys. I suppose I'll continue to hunt for a 64+ and put this one back into the market. Thank you for the assistance!
