1878 P Rev 79 VAM 225A - PCGS MS62 (not on holder)

Post by apcnotamac » Wed Apr 27, 2022 7:27 pm

Just wondering about the value of VAM225A - because it isn't certified by PCGS I have been having trouble tracking down prices; even though the page indicates it has a high level of interest and is rare; any assistance would be appreciated!

It depends on the DIs. How clear do your DIs show up. I had a MS-64 that I got ride of because the DIs were almost nonexistent.
Photos would help.

I sold it for any old MS-64 Rev 79 Graysheet.
The DIs were too faint for mr to charge premium.
I now have a MS-62 PL that is spectacular.

May I ask how much the 62 cost?

IMO, the variety is not hard to find; most are PL; owned several; clashed LDS are tougher again IMO. So, I am in The Grey Sheet crowd…

I paid right about MS-62 PL Graysheet.
It was not attributed.
The DIs are really something. They really jump out at you.
