Re: OT - Finished a Short but Challenging Set

Just noticed the TrueView for this last coin. I crossed it at Long Beach last month.

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.

Re: ANACS GRADES 10-4-21 GOOD BUDDY1

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 ...

Re: Grey sheet Vam Price guide

There is no association between the Coin Dealer Newsletter and the SSDC. The expectation is that similar sales and considerations will likely be used in determining current values, but they will probably vary like among any group of price guides. I have not seen the subset of VAMs the greysheet is o...

A couple samples from the rough draft. It is very VAM-ish. I will add subscripts to the dies to indicate the hubs used too.

Long Beach Roll Call

Late posting it, but.... who's going to attend the Long Beach show this week (Thu-Sat)? I am guessing some old regulars will be there for sure, needing that coin fix, with the show being down for 19 months now. I will be at Table 628 (Select Rarities). Stop and say, "Hi," and schmooze about coins. B...
