Re: I find myself on occasion drifting more and more to the dreaded.....Darkside

There are too many awesome VAMs in the Peace dollars to ignore them. Pick them up while decently priced as I believe they will continue to have a following as well as a growing number of interested Vammers.

Re: Hello VAMWORLD! and THANK YOU for letting me join!

Welcome, Kevin, to the madness of VAMs. $20 each for a bunch of Morgans was a great buy. Feel free to post and there is so much expertise and just great people on this site you will be amazed. The learning curve is big so don't get discouraged as you will learn as you go along. Now that you are reti...

Big Suggestion: Take a couple of pictures to show size perspective as he will love to see them when he is older. Have mom lay down and put the babies foot next to mom's and take a picture. Another great one is to have the babies hand wrapped around mom's finger. When he gets older he will be amazed...

Re: What is the best way to buy Morgans

Coin stores or coin shows are best for looking for VAMs as most dealers today don't know much and you can see them in hand. Advertisements for rolls that grade a certain way generally don't make the grade. If you are buying for fun and want the VAM search then stick with the Morgans or Peace. If str...

Re: LITTLE FLORENCE OREGON COAST COIN SHOW

I've been to this show so agree with Scott it is worth your time. Lot of nice people and not much knowledge about VAMs so good for pickin'. I can't make it this year as I have a reunion to go to on Saturday up north.

Re: O/T Modern Day coin Frauds/The very largest & Worse

Very interesting about the guy. Back when I dealt with postage stamps there was a similar crook who shill bid most of his auctions and altered stamps all the time. He got caught and now sells coins but I can't remember his name or handle as it has been a couple of years since I ran into him on the b...
