Re: O/T Oregon Fires

I'm on the East side of the Blue Ridge and the conversations here are " Wish we could send some of the rain here to the folks on the West coast." Hope everyone stays safe! :(

Re: O/T.... Channeling the Bunny!

Chris, As you know I wouldn't have much advise on the photography possibilities but have a dangerous amount of knowledge on chemical etching. There are a bunch of chemical etches that may revival the date but the after effects may turn this cool Ike from a $15 coin to a $1 coin. I guess it just turn...

For those looking for a 28A or 28B, it would be worthwhile to look at those attributed as 1B, even among your own coins. The MPD is an easy thing to miss when considering the clashing primarily. I know that I fo...

Re: Sears Coin Shop

... One guy was a licensee with Sears, Roebuck & Company from 1977-2000.. His store was named the Sears Stamp & Coin Department and was located within a Sears store in an upscale mall in Clearwater Florida. ... So it would seem, then, that a licensee could name their shop whatever they wanted withi...

Re: NEW/NEWER MEMBERS

Thanks for the advice. I have really learned a lot since joining VAMWORLD. As I had hoped, it has been a lot of fun searching for VAMs and trying to attribute coins I have had for a while as well as new ones.
