Is it die #1 or #3?
I’m interested if it is die #3.

Don't know if you got your answer or not but the new price guide on SSDC gives it a ballpark of $195, only $10 above the listing for a VAM-19/19A/19B. Guide says graded VAM-36s in MS63 are only worth $104, though, which seems a bit low?

I am definitely not the expert so take this information very lightly...

FWIW; Just my opinion, and it's worth what you are paying.

In reference to a VAM-36 die Number 1
If it is a really nice super bright white then I think it may be worth a little premium above graysheet.
If not, I wouldn't pay a premium.
I have not had a problem seeing MS-63 and 64 VAM-36.1s.

I have not been lucky enough to find a 36.3 on my own, so I would pay a little premium for a 36.3.
So if anyone has a 36.3 and wants to sell it to me, PM me. :D

I'm sure sellers are wanting some sort of premium.
So if you are asking because you are thinking of selling, then you can forget everything I just said. :lol:
Best wishes
