What to do with a possible vam 19B2

Post by Kcf9572 » Mon Sep 09, 2019 10:31 pm

hello all,
So posting a question about my 1889 dollar, some of you believe it could be a vam 19B2. So my question is.... what to do with it. I bought a set of coins at a garage sale. An uncirculated Morgan coins of the 19th century tribute to the west. Do you feel the coins are better left in the set, (15 coins)or pull the 1889 out. If you want to see pictures of the 1889 I have them in the general board. I will include a few here. So what is the best avenue to pursue if I was to sell? Thank you so much!!!

Can I get a full Obverse pic? Does look like a 19B2.

Been looking. But I’m new to this. Using my phone camera to see.

Send all of them to JB (messydesk) for the 2019 VSS/PCGS Bulk Submission #4
Look in the Buy, Sell, Trade section, great deal I would say.

I paid $105.50 for My PCGS 1889-P MS 64 V-19B2.

I have only three sales data records for 1889-P VAM 19B2, and all show just modest premiums over generic price:

1889- 19B2 61 PCGS May-19 E $71
1889- 19B2 58 ANACS Oct-13 E $63
1889- 19B2 58 raw Jan-15 E $36
When in doubt... don't.

From all your expertise opinions do you recommend having coins like this graded?

Here's a link to the bulk submission idea posted above.
It is a great deal JB does for all of us.

It really depends on what you are going to do with the coins.... If you plan on selling them, then the VSS route
is far less expensive then sending them in yourself for grading. ( PCGS grade + VSS attribution) If you are
going to keep them, then it's your choice to send them in or just keep them raw,
