1921 Peace - VAM 3?

Post by patrickahearnesq » Fri Mar 12, 2021 2:51 pm

Hello all,

Brand new to the forum. I wanted to pop in and ask for opinions. I am putting together an MS60+ Peace Dollar set and recently was able to find a 21 Peace in MS63 to add to the collection. When I took a look at it, it appears to have an unattributed VAM 3.

Looking for 2 things:
1. Confirmation
2. I have submitted coins to PCGS before but never to have a VAM Attributed. How do I go about filling out the paper form to request that service.

Because the coin is already in a PCGS holder, the service type you want (section 5) is reholder.

Then in section 7:
– put 133734 in the coin number box (I always put the coin number corresponding to what I want the attribution to be, not what it currently is)
– put "VAM 3 Line Thru L" in the coin description/variety box
– put an X in the box for Variety Attr
– put your coin's current serial number (last 8 digits) in the certification number box.
When in doubt... don't.

I would leave it in the old holder. And consider sending it to VSS. That is Messydesk. He runs this website. He is a lot faster and lot less money.
