Re: PCGS has graded 2021 Morgans

If you open them up, those graded are all Advanced Release. (I looked to see if they were doing them as First Strikes.) What do you make of that? A special thing for the grading service?

Re: 2021 Morgans and Peace Dollars - Orders are processing

CC & O and D & S all shipped. My P and Peace have the mail service designated and paid on the credit card. So figure they might ship later today or tomorrow. A logistical feat to get a hundred thousand packages assembled and passed through the post office bottleneck. Whatever I get by Thursday can g...

Re: PCGS has graded 2021 Morgans

Getting a 68 or 69 might might be an invitation to crack out and pocket it down to a VF or lower for $85 (plus grading fees) fun.

Re: 1902-O Morgan Dollar possible VAM 1???

Maybe a VAM-24? Hard too tell form the shots. C4 reverse with the mintmark set high and right. Normal date, left side of normal. Looks like probably a doubled profile, but impossible to really tell. latedatemorganguy (Alan) is the expert on this date and will come around at some point.

Re: 2021 Morgans and Peace Dollars - Orders are processing

My order of 3 Phila Morgans and 3 Peace just changed. Before the subtotal was $255, suggesting only the Morgans were ready. Now it is $510. So I guess the Peace allotment was delivered to ship. I guess we will see those going out very soon now.

Re: 2021 Morgans and Peace Dollars - Orders are processing

Got the notice that my twenty CC and O privvies shipped, meaning shipping tomorrow (though it says yesterday) I presume. Hopefully will arrive in time to drop at the PCGS Invitational later in the week. Anyone know if you have to keep them in the sealed box to submit for First Strike, if they are ev...

Re: 2021 Morgans (pictures)

I think the Mint missed a big opportunity in not producing a limited number of each in the original 90% silver alloy. But the numbskulls would have sooner done a West Point Morgan and Peace before considering that.

Peace Dollar shows backorder still.
My order that has 3 Peace and 3 Morgan (last sale date) says processing, but the credit card was hit for only 3 coins for that order. So it looks like the Peace a just lagging. In my case, they will charge separately.

Re: 1902-O VAM?

We did do this before. You have a VAM-15. Thanks, Alan. I knew it had been reviewed before but was driving me crazy. Most of my VAM-15s have had that E_D crack just shy of the tiny 15A break. If any of the photos would be useful, they can be added to the VAM-15 page to spare others future grief. If...

1902-O VAM?

Going through my raw Morgan and Peace dollars, I got stuck on one 1902-O. I was sure I attributed before, but not so sure. It is close to several but cannot pin it down. 1902-O-jbc-q1-date.jpg 1902-O-jbc-q1-O.jpg 1902-O-jbc-q1-O1.jpg This looked like the mint mark on the VAM-12, but does not match t...

Flipping mine directly to PCGS for grading, with original packaging returned. Hopefully they will arrive in time to take delivery at FUN.

1901-S VAM-10 is a good sleeper VAM.

Specialists for 1879-S might like to find out what VAM that 79-S with the PL obv is.

Re: OT - Finished a Short but Challenging Set

Do you have a guide ready? No. It will take very little time, a couple days unless I want to make it fancy. I was pushing myself 100% to get as much of the Trade dollar book draft together going to the show date. They will both be done prior to FUN. I got that rare Lafayette crossed at the show for...

Re: OT - Finished a Short but Challenging Set

The LaFayette Dollar die variety set is a fun one. There are only 5 varieties .... As for the rarities, I will have a variety guide ready by Long Beach but can roughly review them. After inspecting thousands of these, the relative percentage are pretty well known. Do you have a guide ready? No. It ...
