Re: 1934-P VAM 1F

WOW!!! Those squiggles are killer. Not to piss anyone off but that should be an Elite 30 or Top 50, in my opinion. Say, does the top 50 and elite 30 ever change? I know the John Roberts does. Thanks.🐍 Chase lists do not change except for corrections to errors or expansion to include other die pairs...

I asked Brett Charville about using outside consultants for varieties a while back. He said it was something they planned on...

Re: Not secure !!!!

The site has never been "secure." I will probably change that as FB doesn't allow nonsecure links to be posted anymore. There are no transactions requiring security certificates (credit card, bank accounts, PHI, other private data) on this site, as it's simply a wiki and a message board, which is wh...

Re: 1889-P VAM-23A Grade is in

The SSDC Registry only shows coins that were explicitly added to the registry. It does not harvest them from TPGs.

Re: 1889cc vam 7 counterfeit

My impression when I first saw one of these was that it was a sandwich coin, but if there are more, I guess it's a die struck fake.

Re: 1880 O VAM ?

Small O, seemingly heavy clash on the right side, wonky white balance. Shouldn't be a tough one. This is where I encourage you have have a go before asking others.

Re: 2020 VSS/PCGS Bulk Submission #4 Closed

Bulk is a different department from normal grading. We're still in QA, which must mean there won't be any holders with wrong dates on them. :D At least we have a popcorn smiley now.
