Hit List 40 VAMs

It's been over 8 years since the publication of the last "VAMs to collect" list. Since that time, many new discoveries have been made and much additional information, especially about 1878 rarities, has come to light. Thus, the need for a new list of VAMs to collect from Jeff Oxman and the Society of Silver Dollar Collectors. The new Hit List 40 book from Jeff was published in early 2009.
