Elite 30 1934 Peace Dollar Vam 1-A

I have an Elite 30 Peace dollar, 1934 NGC MS63 and it is a Vam 1A. I am getting ready to list it on Ebay for sale. The only other 1934 graded MS63 by NGC is listed at $299 and it also is an unattributed Vam 1A. MY question is two fold. This section is for sale/trade as far as I can see on the site h...

Congrats. I picked one last year that the dealer mistakenly labeled as an 1878 7 TF.
Wow, I know math is hard for a lot of people and the number 8 is a reach for others but............

Re: 1878 VAM 9 First Die Pair

Nice find! I've only cherrypicked 2, ever, and both were last year. The first was a raw one for $80 at Long Beach that now sits in a PCGS xf40 holder (Ill never sell it, you never sell your first VAM 9 Cherrypick. Ever 😎) and the other was a low grade I bought for $25 at the Chicago ANA show last s...

Re: 1878 VAM 9 First Die Pair

Thanks for your reply. For me, this is the one that started it all. Its the reason why we have this website to go to. Based on the facts I have seen, it was in the presence of one of our past Presidents, Rutherford Hayes. He may have even handled it. Its a connection to our past, our history. It sa...

Re: 1878 VAM 9 First Die Pair

Congrats on the 78-P VAM-9, nice find, good job . It's a great piece, the hole can be repaired but it's still going to be a details coin which is okay for a rare piece of history. So now you you're part of "this thing of ours". I had no idea the hole could be repaired. Is that something that NGC, P...

1878 VAM 9 First Die Pair

I just recently joined the Vamworld community although I have enjoyed the website for a number of years. There have been many hours I spent searching for Vams on this site to compare my own collection with or maybe a new discovery previously unknown. I thought it would be appropriate to share a Vam ...

The 2 scratches are from the wing down to the olive branch and then from the olive branch down to the wreath. I also found some die scratch line running through the cap as well as a couple of small...
