What is a 79-O VAM-4 in NGC MS-60PL worth?
Thank you

Heritage sold one of those in 60DMPL back in 2014. It's the only PL or DMPL in any grade that I have ever seen sell, so I have to conclude that VAM 4 is exceedingly rare in PL/DMPL.

The coin you're asking about is the only PL VAM 4 in the NGC Pop Report, and there are no DMPLs. PCGS has no DMPLs, either, and only one in PL... an AU58.

Based upon my database of MS60 prices, I'd wild guess an NGC 60PL in the $300 range, but auctioning for more would not surprise me at all.

1879-O 4 60 DM ANACS Apr-14 H $499
1879-O 4 60 NGC Jan-16 Gold $235
1879-O 4 60 NGC Feb-15 H $165
1879-O 4 60 ANACS Nov-20 H $132
1879-O 4 60 NGC Jul-16 H $129
1879-O 4 60 ANACS May-18 H $126
1879-O 4 60 NGC Jun-12 H $89
When in doubt... don't.
