1880 VAM 1A2 Nice

Post by Dirtdoctor » Wed Dec 28, 2022 4:40 pm

Been in a dry spell but got this one recently. Pretty happy with it. Has a bit more luster than pics show. Strong strike doubling in the date. A bit baggy, but not cleaned.

Very nice! Not the usual VG-VF you see for this variety.

Did you find it in the wild? Or was it attributed? Either way, congrats, don’t see those in that condition very often. If they bag it the first time around for the scratch, I’d send it in again, sooner or later it’ll holder at 58.

Long story short - raw unattributed. Paid standard lower grade MS $.
