1884-CC VAM-2, 1885-P VAM-18.

Post by johnhenry9009 » Sat May 20, 2023 10:56 pm

I was able to get 2 Morgan dollars and 2 Morgan dollar Dansco albums for $350 at my local coin shop. One of the Morgan dollars was a 1884 Carson City and the other one was a 1885 P VAM- 18 that appears to be a Ms-63 cleaned obverse. I will add more photos later. :D

Love the 84CC VAM-2. An unsung hero in my book. Well done.

Here is a photo of the Dansco albums :D I do apologize for the graininess of the photo, it's my first time taking a photo of something bigger than a Morgen Dollar.

Lastly, here are some photos of the 1885-P :D I do apologize for the different color markers I'm just trying figure out which colored arrow fit given the context of what it is pointed at ”like blue for die clashing and red for die scratches etc.”

Not to hijack your thread , but I wanted you to know your V-2 inspired me . I am going to have to wait until it actually shows up , It takes Ian and the gang at GC a minute with so many coins ending on Sunday night . But it will most likely/ probably be here by Saturday. I went for a side of striation,{ because I learned that word here on VAMWORLD }with mine and it's already in plastic . I think PCGS gave it a 64 based on the lustre and not a 63 based off the marks ... GC pictures actually were better this time than the true view . But ya you got the deal off the day , those older DANSCO albums are getting hard to find without the peace set include .No offense to the dark siders out there .
