Re: 1921 Chocolaty Goodness

Not much to go on, except it's not a D mint and a few very minor die cracks.... when you get it in hand, take a look @ 1921 P VAM 3CL.

Re: Think this NEWP has a case of Ringworm

I know they are not the best to use for VAMming, but the die cracks through UNITED sure do look like a match to the smaller photos on the 22 page... misplaced photos? Also looks like they match the very light cracks @ UNI in the large full photo bottom of 22 page. Same reverse as another VAM ??

Re: Name That VAM - 1891-O edition

Right up my alley.... may I use that info / photo in my notes, or would I need to seek permission in writing ? I have a little die study that is in early stages of progress. The letter doesn't mention anything about the break between the wreath and olive branch leaves..... so I'll hold back my "gues...

Looked off center, so took a shot on it

Recent E-bay pick, figured it might be off center enough to call it that.

Re: OT... How are you gonna handle the next 2 weeks?

Personally, @ 63 yrs. old (today - Happy birthday to Remy and Albert Einstein too) My Mrs. and I are sticking close to home. My job is considered fairly essential (system operator for the electric co.) so our group of 6 have been pretty much sequestered to a locked down room. I assume the local Kans...

Re: Baltimore has been called off...

I was never a big fan of toning, especially in a slabbed example. Be careful out there, it's getting a bit crazy.

Re: O/T BULLION TRADING FUTURES

Just don't jump too early, the bottom is not yet in sight for the declining stocks. There will be a good buying opportunity around the bend. Airlines, oil, and cruise lines, etc.

Nice looking 21 - thinking I might have one of those around here somewhere. Not real sure if my example makes the 19a listing, might dig it out and post a pic for comparison.
