Show us your LVA fails

Post by bjsilverfox » Mon Mar 30, 2020 6:16 pm

Here is one of mine. In Leroy's return letter he said he would have to see another one. I had seen one in a junk bucket a week after I found this one, but passed on it. I thought better of it and went back to buy it. Of course when I returned it is was gone. :(

Good idea for a thread. My success rate with him is high though since I dont tend to shotgun him stuff and I dont have one or two with a neat feature like some of you that you put away to try again with him a different day. The relative handful he's kicked back for me have either been nothingburger throw-ins or ones he didnt want to split and one or two where he found the listed VAM I missed.

Intrested to see all those ones you guys have been trying to get listed tho!

I only have one that I can think of. When I was doing the 1883P die study I sent him one that he thought had distinctive features for a listing, but it was also toned and had machine doubling. "So I need to see untoned coin without doubling to list and photograph". Still haven't found another example. Some detail photos are here:

Good post! Surprised there aren't more peeps adding to the discussion :lol: Over the past 4 years I've had a few fails, but this one really sticks out. I had mixed emotions about this one when I got it back.....wasn't sure if I should be embarrassed or proud :lol: I'll let you guys decided :shock: :o :oops: 8-)

Well said Longstrider. Let's see some more more posts. I know they are out there and it will help all of us to make better decisions about what we send to Leroy. Heck, we might even be able to get a listing out of a previous failed submission.

Thanks Gents! :D A counterfeit I can be proud of.... :lol: I bought it off ebay and actually got my money back. I bought from this seller before with no issues, he was stunned it was a counterfeit and rebated money. I still buy from this seller to this day. Them wacky Chinese! :roll: hee hee hee
