Another USPS adventure...

Bought a raw coin on eBay, fingers crossed it's gonna be a goodie. Anyway arrived at regional PO on the 23rd; usually a pass thru to the the local PO here; sod I thought I'd have a shot at getting Sat. Nope. Not in today's mail either; so; check the tracking and see it's been sent to a different loc...

Re: Tampered dies.

So anyone have insights as to what “varieties” might be out there for 1882-s $5 & $10 gold coins for grins and chuckles?

Re: Tampered dies.

Wow. Dated 1883. We are glad he didn’t notice the early SF dollar dies or collecting today might be somewhat boring!

Agree; for instance there are 4 stages of 221B.

Re: Apparently this is a rare 1878

I knew that...still looking to upgrade the AU 53 I found any years ago, so great find. I'm pretty sure I saw one unc. quite a number of years ago on HA, but price got too high for my budget back then. Several of the C reverse dollars are just dang near impossible to find, and more so uncirculated. 2...

Re: 1878 vam 70 / 70A ?

Haven't seen one without cracks, but more than one set in the SSDC registry list both. I suspect no crack specimens exist, so I keep looking...As to those coins I have seen, not sure what would be the dividing line between 70 / 70A. Can't say I believe V22C really exists either...At least with the V...

Re: Apparently this is a rare 1878

...and will add only found 2 in the wild, both AU...trying to assemble an unc C reverse set, V215 and 221.1A aside, is about impossible, so the hunt goes on!

Re: WTB: 1878 VAMs 221B EDS, 225, 226, 228.4, 230.1

Tall order for any of these! FYI; V226 comes un-clashed and there is a lightly clashed version w/o letter transfer so it won't be a 226A. BTW, don't forget 215 for the C set :roll:

Best wishes on the hunt in 2021! V85 & 86 are on several folk's want lists here.
