8TF VAM-14 Proof??

Post by mark » Tue Jan 31, 2023 2:18 am

Does anyone have any information about VAM-14 having been struck with proof dies? I have never heard of an 1878 VAM-14 Proof and nothing about VAM-14 being a proof on VW.

It's the second use of the VAM 9 obverse, so any claimed proof is mistaken in the most charitable reading. This marriage does exist in a PL stage however.

Thank you so much for the reply. There's a VAM-14 NGC PR62 and was shocked to see this variety in a proof holder.

Is it online somewhere or just in the pops? NGC attributions have historically needed to be taken cum grano salis.

Not sure how putting grains of sperm in my sails is gonna help me with NGC attributions, but I'll do it if you think it will help!

Well, here is the rest of the story:

I steered far, far away from this one…
