I would feel no shame in that . Truth is I have been looking for one of those engraved holders since you posted that in another topic ,...You know maybe get an example of each TPG finest just because ,,, Congrats Mr . D!!! @DHalladay ... This game is just silly enough that I think it is entertaining if nothing else !!!! There is no limit to the price paid VS value there of . but I will already warn @PacificWR I know you picked a 23A for 30 bucks :D

I almost feel bad about posting this one. Almost. :twisted:
The story is, it came to me as-is in a straight-up trade for my 1878 VAM 44 in an ANACS AU details holder (it looked AU53/55 to me). I bought it for the full sticker price asked by a longtime dealer of high end Morgans, so it's my cost basis on this 1880-P VAM 8. Have fun!

It is dealers choice sir .... The group decide the guesses can't be over the price paid , like the game show So there is that . I know I am on a time limit to play , cause we are T minus 24 hours to 10 days in the hills in the relentless pursuit of trophy Mule deer . So It is up to you .....it is actually kind of a snapshot for folks reading that might not really post on here . I was hoping to get some of the names that just register and so far maybe only lurk to play .You guys aren't really that scary..... In reality I have found some pretty good folks on this board ... Thanks for playing !

OK, confession time.
For the VAM 44 I used to make this trade I paid just $40. That was the sticker price on the holder, and I even pointed to it when I asked the dealer, "Is this the price?" He said yes.
The person I traded with cherrypicked the VAM 8 as a raw coin. He paid less than that for it – less than what the grading, attribution and postage cost.

So do we have a winner here? Everyone missed by miles, but Jodemyer missed by the fewest.
When in doubt... don't.

OK, here's a fun one. LVA made it my very first VAM Discovery in 2002. A couple years later, PCGS owner David Hall put Discovery Coin on the holder as thanks for enlisting 3 fellow VAMers to submit a list of VAM recommendations that PCGS should begin attributing. Before then they only did basic stuff like R78-R79, O/S, 1887/6, etc.

Would be cool to know who the 3 Vammers were that contributed.
