a 1921-P kill and a 2-fer discovery

Received a package from LVA today: – 1921-P VAM 3GO eliminated (a dupe of 3HO). – 1921-P VAM 3HO kept for having a more complete description. New VAMs 120 and 120A (D1 reverse) Discovery 2-fer given (although only a 120A was inspected). Both VAMs do/will have tripling just about everywhere, plus the...

Re: 1921-D VAM-2B PCGS MS65

colwillys is right about generic 21-D prices these days; they've gone totally berserk this year.

2B has been vary rarely sold as a VAM (I've recorded just 4 since 2009), with no discernible VAM premium.
Neat cracks though!

...and for the D2 scribbles guide.
There is currently just 1 photo on the attribution page, and there is nothing in the scribbles guide.

Hooray a 1921-P kill!
I presume that means 20A becomes 89A?

Scarface bidding lunacy

Each morning this year, as I enter previous day’s VAM sales prices into my database collected from various auction sites, the same reaction loudly shouts in my head: “What are you buyers doing!? Do you have even the slightest clue?” What I’m talking about are common VAMs in ho-hum grades that are no...

Re: 1892-S VAM-8 Die Pair 1 and Die Pair 2

Congrats Alan!

I looked for years trying to find a doubled hair. The only one I came across was a non-PCGS AU55. In addition to being quite expensive, I didn't agree with the grade... so I let it go. :(

And now I'm no longer interested in acquiring one.

Not a VAM-7 - I am thinking this is "strike tripling" rather than a true triple die.
That's pretty sweet!
Does anything else on the coin have that effect?

Hey Dennis,

I have an example that matches these features, and I've filed it under VAM 1BE. I think that's accurate.

Yep, that's it!
Thank you very much!

Need 1921-P help before going to LVA (solved!)

This coin has plenty of scribbles to be identifiable, but I've been through both the VAMworld and Crae's scribbles guide multiple times with no luck. I'd like others to take a look before I send it to LVA. Thanks in advance for any thoughts/suggestions. -- D1 reverse -- decent scribbles -- no cracks...

Return it! If you want an AU55 VAM 5, why not get a certified one?

Has anyone seen this line under the date before? I've been through both the scribbles guide and the die crack guide 3 times, but with no success. I also checked Crae's scribbles book. But before I send it to LVA I wanted to get some more eyes on it. -- no cracks anywhere -- doubled date -- doubled l...

Re: A gift, a ‘pick, a TRU_T

Larry: The answer to "which one is the more rare to find?" is simple. It's the 1A1, because all of the letters in TRUST being present makes it easy to overlook. The SSDC registration total for 1A1 is 17, versus 39 for 1A2 – a difference that is actually a lot smaller than I would have guessed. But "...
