This is a VAM who sales price history is profoundly erratic and inconsistent. And only a handful have come up for sale in recent years. All I'm sure of is the PCGS-61 coin needs to have the VAM attribution put on the holder.

Dennis, I certainly appreciate your research and pricing results. Yes, erratic is certainly a fitting description, but it is what it is.

Looks like the PCGS MS6! would be worth submitting to PCGS for VAM attribution.

The PCI slabbed coin is a little different situation, I am already below what I originally paid for it (what's new with many VAMS), but I would rather see the coin go on auction with a reasonable minimum bid and see if it can't wind up in the hands of a budding VAM collector. As you stated, it is not a common VAM, but it needs to find a home where it will be appreciated.

I would be a bidder on the PCI/Brian Raines attribution if it goes to auction. It would definitely be appreciated. I don't currently have any 78-S Vams in my collection. :)

Will get the XF coin up on eBay by the end of the month. Notice will be posted on the VAMWorld BST section for this 7-day auction.

That's an excellent idea. Was probably at least 12 years ago when I purchased it, and at that time, he stated that he didn't have many of his signed PCI slabs remaining.
