Re: 21p v3FM... pics for Zombie page

I agree matched 3FM text & will post images there.

2011 supplement has text - but no 3FM, 3FN, or 3FP plates. Only 3FO is shown.

Both 33 & 33A pages could be improved with full coin images, if you could had them.

Where to start to find VAM pricing

The last guide of prices was 2014 and based on 2013 data. Until another guide is assembled, I hope this is helpful. First, there is the retail or insurance cost if you had to replace one.

deja vam

OK, I've been under a lot of stress & coins gives some relief to focus on other things. I spot an odd wide-reed with all these file lines in the upper left field & go what's that. It came today. A LDS MS63 VAM-27A at common money. I look at the page and there are this set of photos I added from a MS...

Re: Unknown 21-P cracks

Not 3EU. Here are the bow & tail feathers.
Also I see there is another 21-P lover out there.
I spotted a 55A put it on watch to come back to debate if the R break was 55 or 55A only to return & find it sold.

Re: Unknown 21-P cracks

Here are the cropped auction photos without my painting of the cracks.
It is kind of my VAM justification. I'll buy 10+ MS64 21 Morgans to firgure out the VAM, but hesitate to buy the 21 Peace I chase at a premium.

21 Peace from the bay

I hope some one here picked up this MS63 21 Peace. Its about the 5th one I've seen. First in a year.
