Coming back after many years away...

Post by Raybob15239 » Wed Oct 17, 2018 8:06 pm

I was very active on the old Wiki VAMWorld many years ago and have been away since about 2009 or 10. Just starting back again after a long absence from VAMming. Just wondering how many of the "old" crew are still around?

Cool. I wasn't around then but it's always nice to bring someone back into the fold. Curious though, how did you find the new VW 2.0 boards and was it the catalyst to, or had an influence in, your decision to return?
Alonzi VW 2.0!

CascadeChris: I was talking with a colleague about coin collecting and got into a discussion about die varieties and VAMs in general. He was curious about learning more, so I told him about VAMWorld. I had no idea the old VW had gone poof along with all of Wikispaces. I pulled up VW2.0 looking for info for him and decided to sign up for an account and jump back in. I still have a couple of Peace Dollars that I could not figure out from back then, so.... here I am.

Still here too, but not nearly as much as before.
I do feel like, without stepping on any of the other guys' toes, you aren't actually a "Ray" though...?
I go totally NUTS for WOW! VAMs!! Or is that from WOW! VAMs?

ImpairedSquirrel... yes, I am a Ray. The screen name was a nickname, Raybob, given by a co-worker years ago. (You can look at the VAM page for my favorite discovery, 1901S VAM 14 for my full name.)

Crabscape, that would be the old "hangnail", right?

I have to learn how to post pictures again... Was looking through my handful of "what the hell is it?" coins and saw something very interesting on a 23-S Darksider...
