Ok thanks Jody! Heres one...1886P Vam 1c MS65 DMPL, 1 of 3 top pop for PCGS for the vam, the only 1C DMPL listed in the registry.
It's also the first PCGS plate coin on coinfacts for the vam.
I had picked one raw, (not dmpl), off ebay and really love this vam and had to have this one when I saw it. Guess price paid.

Thankyou @UNCLE BINGO and @jrfaust I paid 1136.99 after the bids were done. I had looked it up and saw it was a plate coin and had looked up the pop on PCGS and the SSDC registry and also checked the PCGS price guide on just the 65 DMPL regular Morgan, (which I know is not what they sell for) which had it not far from what I paid. So thats how I justified it! haha glad I did, I love looking at it! It's the only DMPL I own.
@UNCLE BINGO
Wins! Heres your avacado!

Hoping this thing never gets a milk spot .Here are the hints . Purchased June of last year. Online auction with BP's that I wrote a check for to get it down to 10 % ... Heritage could take a lesson from GC on that for the buyers pocketbook anyway . :lol: When I bought it PCGS had that first strike nonsense at $3500. They now only think the first strike is about $2650 . Although it is the lowest mintage Eagle there are obviously lots of 70's because prices have fallen due to supply ..Guess the amount of the check I wrote that includes shipping to the house . I will have to go buy some avacados and a blow up doll for the winner... 🤣 🤣 🤣

@Jodemyer No avocado for you :lol: :lol: :lol: ,,,,,, Alright, alright I won't put any more eagles on ,,,, so so high .Truth be told winning bid was $1775.55 +BP with a slight discount ( 10%) for writing a check with the shipping , came to $1968.61 which is a lot of dam money for the " covid eagle "... :lol: Think I only bought it in memory of my old man , the ASE's were his gig . I however prefer Morgan dollars .... funny thing is I finally got it , locked in the vault with the rest of them and did not really think about it to much until we got on the subject of milk spots a week or so ago. Weird ,,,,, VAM"s are more fun IMO

now back to the game .......

These things are better with stories , so this is a work in progress story, live as it is happening,
Here are the hints , coin arrived in the mail today , advertised as 1904-O VAM 4 B Rusty Fishhook , NGC MS 64 NAOH...
V 4B is about as common as they come for a Hit list 40 and Elite clashed , list Morgan IMO . I looked and there are roughly 70 of them in the registry most hover about in that grade . Every kid should have one with a nick name like that , Right ?

Looked up price guides PCGS , NGC , SSDC etc , I did not need grey sheets , THEY HAVE SOME KIND OF THING against toned coins and I personally have no need for that publication unless I run out of toilet paper :lol:

THE NGC verify pictures were garbage , they were the old ones . The sellers pictures were shot on an I phone and I could NOT tell for sure what it was , But there is that ebay guarantee so , lets just say the VAM received was not the VAM advertised...

I sent the seller this note after the coin hit the house , because I have learned some things from all the good folks on this here website the past year and a half . Not sure how it will be received yet . After all I am not a senior Numismatist, by any means ... I am however "The Supreme Commander of beach party war games " which is great honor for a kid from the desert :lol: :lol: Who am I kidding I haven't been a kid for 40 years :popcorn:

Coin arrived today , I regret to inform you however the attribution advertised on EBay appears to be in error . Under a loop the coin appears to match either VAM 35A or 35B . It is not a VAM 4B "Rusty Fishhook" ... I have not shot pictures with the microscope to confirm the exact A or B designation and that may be difficult with the toning ..I realize that the coin and VAM are fairly common , and feel terrible about having to point this out . I do not believe there was any malicious intent on your part . Clashes occurring just a little bit off can sometimes resemble list coins . It happens even at PCGS and NGC all of the time . i am going to assume your shop will be closed until Monday . If you have any thoughts on how you would like to proceed , that would give me time to shoot pictures and provide corresponding screen shots from the VAMWORLD website for your convenience.
Best Regards
Bob

Update ,,,,, Seller turned out to be extremely cool . Think I will keep an eye out for a new face here on the VAMWORLD forum in the future . Maybe even a new member of the SSDC someday . We made a deal . AND @Jodemyer your first guess was close enough ... original deal was $154.00 for the listed VAM 4B ... seller offered a 20 dollar refund for the non list coin V35B or $134.00.. Everybody wins .......AND I did not forget your prize but the forum won't let me embed or post it directly .... sigh https://giphy.com/gifs/cbs-dance-avocad ... SoeOExZAF6
