1888 S VAM 13 - Rev Gouges

Post by belmarbeach » Fri Feb 26, 2021 6:52 pm

Hi, is there any premium to this VAM. In an older/white ANACS slab MS62. Realize this year has appreciated nicely over the years and wonder if this VAM adds any premium. Thanks for your time and assistance. Great website for Vammers. Use it all the time and been cataloging my VAMs recently while I work from home in spare time ;) .

Welcome aboard Jim.

VAM 13 is, perhaps surprisingly, not too hard to find. I've seen them in PL and in grades up to MS66.
Premiums tend to be modest and highly inconsistent -- and very dependent upon things like overall eye appeal, whose holder it's in, and whether it is attributed. "All the money" is usually for blast white, slightly PL coins in attributed PCGS holders. Here are some prices from previous sales I have collected over the years:

1888-S 13 64 PCGS Jan-21 H $690
1888-S 13 64 PCGS Jun-18 H $660
1888-S 13 64 PCGS Oct-20 H $630
1888-S 13 64 PCGS Dec-17 H $552
1888-S 13 64 PCGS Sep-17 H $552
1888-S 13 64 ICG Oct-13 E $548
1888-S 13 63 Para. NGC Jan-15 H $841
1888-S 13 63 PCGS Jun-09 PP $750
1888-S 13 63 PCGS Dec-13 H $441
1888-S 13 63 PCGS Sep-13 H $426
1888-S 13 63 PCGS Sep-16 H $423
1888-S 13 63 NGC Mar-09 E $400
1888-S 13 63 PCGS Jul-09 VQ $394
1888-S 13 63 NGC Sep-09 E $338
1888-S 13 62 PCGS Apr-12 TT $322
1888-S 13 62 PCGS Apr-11 PP $300
1888-S 13 61 PCGS Feb-21 E $436
1888-S 13 61 ANACS Dec-13 E $290

Dennis,

Thanks for the feedback. I was assuming $300 - $325 range, so no real premium over recent auction prices. Blast white, strong strike, but not proof like. Guess the VAM may just help to market to buyers and sell when that day comes.

Jim
