1900-O VAM 23F Discovery Coin

Post by Bigbub » Sun Aug 23, 2020 9:07 pm

I have been looking for an example of the 1900-O VAM 23F coin since 2013 when it was first listed. I finally found one on EBay and it was the discovery coin itself! No mistaking that for something else. It was a bit more expensive than I would have liked, but the example was an MS64 proof like. Since I haven't been out to enjoy any special dinners or traveled anywhere in the last 6 months of this Covid-19 lockdown, I decided to splurge and acquire it. I have no idea who was the discoverer or if it was offered by the discoverer, so if anyone here knows that info and would like to volunteer it, I would be interested to know.

Anyway, I updated the 1900-O VAM 23F page with these photos for everyone's future reference.

Whenever I see a "modern" listing that doesn't have a discoverer mentioned and only a "Discovered in 20xx" subheading I assume it was probably a @vamsterdam discovery. Of course that's not always the case but it is an unusually high possibility.
