New cherrypick 1887-P VAM-1B PCGS 62

Post by vincar73 » Tue Apr 20, 2021 2:41 pm

I wanted to share my latest purchase with you.
This beautiful specimen in PCGS 62 purchased at an auction at normal 1887 MS 62 price.
As DHalladay told me in the discussion board "what it's worth" should be rare in uncirculated.

This luck of mine in being able to cherrypick this rare VAM will be able to compensate (if I ever decide to sell this VAM) the net loss that I will have from a package probably lost in the meanders of USPS. The latest tracking I have is

"Processed Through Facility
ISC NEW YORK NY(USPS)

February 28, 2021, 1:41 pm
Inbound Out of Customs
Your item cleared United States Customs at 1:41 pm on February 28, 2021"

These were coins sent to JB for a bulk submission (including these too viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4596) and he is helping me with complaints which unfortunately have not produced anything at the moment.
I thought that only the Italian post did serious damage but I also notice that USPS is no exception ..

You are lucky on this one that’s for sure . I would love a uncirculated example one day . Especially if I cherry picked it. Best of luck on your lost postage as well

Beautiful. Full stop.

Congratulations. Been on my radar screen for a while - unsuccessfully. The hunt will continue, encouraged on by your success!

Thanks all for comments.
I was very lucky with this one and fortunately the images on the auction site were very clear (first 2 pics uploaded here).
