My first letter from LVA

Post by collectinsince65 » Sun Sep 01, 2019 12:22 pm

Good morning all!
Attached is my first letter from Mr. Van Allen.
Turn around time was very quick!
Took only about 2 weeks from shipping to him to receiving the package back.
Sent in three logo types 1904 s.
First was an example of @PacificWR Wayne's discovery Vam 10
His post on the logo type and couple of months back inspired me to seek these out.
In a span of three days after I started looking I got lucky.
I found what turns out to be VAM 12.
Next day I found VAM 10.
Next day I found VAM 13.
What a cool feeling
Attached are the plate photo's from LVA.
And my original images will be added a little later.
Thanks to all who reply!
Mike

Congrats Mike on your first and second DC's. Your first DC and letter is always special. Two new Flawed Logotype Varieties. Glad to see the list expanding. There are more out there. Do you need help setting up the new pages?

Good to see "VNA" boxes Alan found to be colored in. Since @LateDateMorganGuy hasn't said it yet, "Die studies, folks."

Great job on you new dual discoveries. Mike, glad you found the physical specimen of the LDS of VAM-10. I have been looking for that one for a couple of years. I’ll setup the pages for you.

All done Mike. Updated the Flawed Logotype Varieties page too :

Mike, There is an error on LVA's description. I'll be sending you an email and see how you want to handle it.

Yes there is. Rather than bother Leroy, why not just put a note on the page?
