Re: 1878-S VAM 19A

Easy now... no reason to be combining the Hitlist40 and the WOW! VAMs just because this variety is included in both.

Re: 1878-S Long Nock meaning?

If you'd found two uncirculated long nocks you might next find some unwelcome visitors at your door... ;) :lol:

Re: 1878-S VAM 19A

IMO the 19a doesn't really carry enough premium to pay NGC $15 each (they'd probably screw up the attribution anyway). That variety is easy enough to identify that it really shouldn't need to be labeled (other than for NGC registery purposes, of course).

Jack, I don't think I'll be at summer FUN, but you may be able to get one from Brian if you let him know to bring one along...

Re: Any Idea about this HUGE drop in gold today?

Not to enter this arena with both feet, but the artificially inflated stock market will come crashing down again at point, then our shiny metal disks will be cool again.

Re: I think Heritage made a BIG mistake

Two things that get me are A) How many dealers still price obvious problem coins for full retail (usually a grade or two higher than what the coin actually would be anyway...) and B) How many (mostly seen on eBay) sellers ignore the problem TPG label and still ask retail or more for the coin).

Gale, PM sent.
Mike, on the plus side there's a good chance you got a "first edition" if there was no ANACS voucher (unless the retailer removed them...). Is there a UPC code on the back? If not that's from the first batch I had published. ;)
Down to 11 now.

Re: VSS vs Ebay's Policy

JGrinz-ANACS and ICG are fully accepted on eBay as well. I agree about the "slabbing", but I think (and it sounds like he's going that way) we should be able to include "VSS attributed" or "VSS authenticated" just like folks can use "CAC approved". JB doesn't provide grade opinions, but if he can V...

Re: Die Studies

Ant, no, the issue here is you are trying to force VAMming into a die study... The OP here is the study of dies. And just to show I'm fair, Alan, it's myriad reasons not a myriad of reasons... sheesh, engineers, I tell you what. If I had a nickel for every time us field guys have had to correct them...

Re: Die Studies

Hehe, hey Alan, I think you and I debated this a few times... until my brain caught up with the idea that you are studying dies, not VAMs (hint, hint).
Would it be safe to say "One and done for the die and two and through for the VAM"?

Re: Official WOW! VAMs Guide... Last Call?

At some point I have to do a post on all the updates/changes in the set so everyone can be completely up to date as well... aside from the 80P v25c there are at least a couple new cuds on the list.

Re: Die Studies

Welcome back Ant! Hey, have you read "From Mine To Mint"? It was written by some Roger something or other and is VERY detailed in the workings of the mint... a guy like that would be great to have around here for his highly informed opinions on matters such as this! When die studies are done I'd alm...

Oh, I forgot to mention, thanks to their INCREDIBLE support of our little hobby, each copy also comes with a voucher for TWO FREE COIN GRADINGS from ANACS! This pretty much pays for the guide!

It's quite a while since I've offered these anywhere, so I figured I'd put a post up here for all the newer members. This might just be a first come, first served situation because, by my count, I only have 14 copies left... Being offered here is: WOW! An Introduction To Sixty Of The Most Fascinatin...
