I have so many urgent picture requests that this is at the bottom of my to do list. I got 6 more coins back from NGC unattributed, and david lange said, “ looked at these coins, and they were either too minor, or not varieties at all.” I only sent coins that were listed on their website as ones they attribute and paid the $15 per coin for attribution. Not only did they not attribute them, they took the money and would not attribute them or refund the money. So i have to take pictures of them, and try to convince their blind attributor that he is wrong again. Then i have to do the same thing for 2 for pcgs, and then i have coins that need to be shot for articles, IF I can find the time.

I do not have any of these as discovery coin but I do have 3 of them;
1879-S VAM47 (ANACS attributed)
1879-S VAM14 (ANACS Attributed)
1879-S VAM22 (VSS Attributed)
and I will work on getting photos for the VW pages.

Not discovery coins, but I've added some pics for v93 and v98.

VAM-48 will be a waste of time. It assuredly was a (later listed) VAM-48A. If the VAM-48 discovery coin ever presents itself, we could get it formally delisted. While a fully prooflike VAM-48A has not appeared, I have had a couple in an old hoard that had close to PL obverses. Not sure why we had not deleted VAM-48 from the SSDC Registry catalogue.

I am very happy to see,
What everyone of you have achieved
Along with me on the 1879 s rev 79 series
I knew it was going to be a longshot,
But I appreciate every little thing you do
To help clean up this date,
Every effort
Every comment
Every picture
Every little thing counts
I could not have done lots
Of my research without you guys!
Ty all for your time and dedication

Juan
