VAMnesia setting in

Post by vampicker » Sat Mar 06, 2021 11:38 pm

So I bought this a couple of days ago off eBay. I didn't care what VAM it was. This was about color and the Paramount black holder. I figured I'd just ID it once I got it. It shows up today, and like most 79 Phillies, there's not a lot to go on. I certainly didn't recognize it - at best I had a slight sense of de'ja VAM, that feeling that I've seen this before. There's some minor repunching along the base of the 1 and that doubling on the 9 that's on like half the marriages for this year. I started going down the list for the doubled 1-9 descriptions and found it about halfway thru. Yup, VAM 47 discovered by me. What's worse is I spotted a duplicate listing of this marriage a few years ago and had Chris kill it off. I think I spotted that faster than this example. It is an upgrade and I was able to laugh at myself over it.

"VAMnesia" is a great word.
Comes in handy to explain, "Why can't I find that coin? My inventory database says I have one."
When in doubt... don't.

Maybe not exactly the same thing, but in perusing online auction photos of a series I am very familiar with, I saw something in the auction photos of a coin that I did not recognize. So I went for it. Turned out it was photo poop.

I too suffer from vamnesia. We know most not all information from crappy eBay pictures, and subconsciously we want to take a chance that our rare possible pick won’t let us down. More times than not,they do. This is the fun and frustration of this hobby.
