Got into VAMs in the mid/late 90's.
Many discoveries, 10 are pre-1921, and the rest are mostly scribbling scratches varieties. No Peace variety discoveries.
Favorite VAM is the 1878-P VAM-14.4, followed closely by the 1921-P VAM-41 and 1878-P VAM-41C. Also like 1903-S VAM-2 and later die states of the 1888-P VAM-7.
Enjoy odd ways to collect, such as grading sets and lowballs.
Latest venture here: 1921-D VAM-1X EDS maybe
