Re: FUN Show Cancelled

Anyone know how many people can participate in a Zoom session at once? I have a 27" monitor so I have room for a LOT of thumbnail windows. :lol:

Re: FUN Show Cancelled

I had planned not to go months earlier, yet I'm still sad that the show has been canceled. Not for the in-person buying and selling that won't happen, but for the in-person camaraderie that won't happen – which has always been the best part of FUN for me.

why do people do this?

I got all excited when I saw this 1921-P VAM 3EC with a completely smooth rim! :o I got even more excited when I saw the diameter seems to be totally right! :o :o But I got totally bummned when I put a strong loupe on the "smooth" edge :evil: What makes it worse is, I don't have a 3EC in my 1921-P d...

Re: 1921 P VAM 3FP photos

Excellent!
Looks pretty obvious to me that they're the same coin.

Do you still have LVA's letter for the 3FP discovery? If so, we can send your discovery coin with my 3GL1 discovery and we can get mine killed, because yours was discovered first.

Re: 1921 P VAM 3FP photos

Let's put my 3GL1 Discovery Coin together with your 3FP Discovery Coin and see if they're the same. If they are then we can send 'em to LVA. I'm happy to do that if you like.

Right now I'm thinking it's a straight VAM 6.

Re: 1921 P VAM 3FP photos

Lee: There aren't enough photos in this thread for me to be able to make an accurate comparison. I have the 3GL1 Discovery Coin (pre-clash) and I also have a 3GL2, but my 3GL2 is pretty LDS so there is no trace of letter transfer that I can see, and there's certainly no sign of the thing under God t...

Re: 79-O VAM-4 Top 100

Heritage sold one of those in 60DMPL back in 2014. It's the only PL or DMPL in any grade that I have ever seen sell, so I have to conclude that VAM 4 is exceedingly rare in PL/DMPL. The coin you're asking about is the only PL VAM 4 in the NGC Pop Report, and there are no DMPLs. PCGS has no DMPLs, ei...

Oh, and thanks for the photos.
That was a nice DC pick. One of the hardest clashed 21-Ps.

Nice VAM. I'm still looking for one of those.

Re: Is this an 1882-S VAM 11 or 11A ?

I'd say most likely VAM 11A. Not that it's part of the specification, but is the line through the M shown on the VAM 11A page on yours? John: My coin has some faint, weak horizontal polishing lines, but it doesn't have that nice bold line seen on the attribution page, which I attribute to my coin b...

Re: Is this an 1882-S VAM 11A ?

Looks like it to me, assuming the denticles by the M in UNUM are polished down like on the photo on the VAM 11A page, otherwise it would be VAM 11. Here are the denticles. What's your diagnosis? 39047995 denticles.jpg And here's a shot of 88 in the date. (First 8 has raised diagonal gouges (?) on e...
