Only looked at it and laughed, didn't try cherrypicking or an attribution
For those newer folks who might be unfamiliar with the reference from a very early thread on the old VAMworld:

One of the busiest, man st stressful shows that i have ever attended. I was so busy on Thursday that i wanted to run to the bathroom and hide. Friday was even worse. Trying to finish up 5 pcgs and 2 Ngc submissions while trying to get 2 vss submissions dropped off while dealing with the never ending groups of customers was more than i can handle. I never got my vss coins to jb. And cherrypicking was pretty slim while i dealt with the hordes. This is the first vamthing that i have ever missed. Totally. I could not get everything done and wait on everyone and make the meeting. I dis find 1878 v224 pcgs62, , 1869 5c ddo ngc63, some foreign doubled dies, and i am not sure what else. I left some vams too. Just decided why bother, let someone else find them-1887o vam2, ch au, 1888 v7a bu, 1888 v4a bu and something else that i forgot.
This show was so thick with people wanting to spend money, that i was, and wasn’t prepared. I had the coins but....
I also sold lots of vam related books. Which helped lighten my load getting out of there.

It was crowded through Saturday, more so than I remember in the past. I heard a lot of people talking about having a great show, and there were a lot of families there on Saturday.

THE MONSTER REPORT!!!! I got to cherry an 1878-P VAM 14.7 RAW. I sent it to PCGS STAT and am waiting for the to decide what grade to call it. The few that saw it seemed to think it should be an MS63. I hope so. I am confident it will prove worth my $360.00 investment at any rate. The great day that set up did not end there! I got an 1841 seated dollar "several" years ago and after Dick Osborn did his talk last year - I got home and attributed my seated dollars. The aforementioned looked to me like a (very rare)(proof) OC-P1 but was circulated to XF and I was "not confident" so i showed it to Dick Osborn and Brian Cushing and they agree it is the 6th known 1841 Proof dollar known! Happy day that will be hard to outdo. Hope to hear about some other finds. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
Fantastic! 1878 - P VAM 14.7 and a circ 1841 Proof Seated Dollar (6th known) HOLY MACKEREL :shock: :mrgreen:
