1878 VAM 196A ANACS MS63 Value?

Hello all, was wondering if anyone has data or ideas on how much this V196A is worth. PCGS shows $900 :shock: for VAM & Grade. Any thoughts on the real ball park value?
Here's a couple pics of the coin. :popcorn:
Thanks!!!!!

1896 P with Collar Clash+Dbl'd UNITED STA, Thoughts?

Any thoughts on this 1896 P with slight collar clash in two areas. Here's what I see: Near Date? (maybe near date, it's on the edge) REV has Doubled UNITED STA, lower inside of letters along with dbl'd left outside of upper left wreath leaves. Has multiple die file lines in both left and right wings...

Re: I know, Darkside dementia.

Dr., from Kenny's photo's and the 2AV VAM page, they seem to match up!Looks like it has the same machine doubling on obv along nose and neck and looks to have all the same clash marks on obv with same die crack thru lower neck. Can't see the letter transfer from the photo, but I never could see thos...

Re: I know, Darkside dementia.

Maybe ;) I'm not ready to give up yet, looks like it may have a dbl spike on eagles shoulder that has been filed.
Kenny, could you get me a closer pic of the olive branch stem? Can't tell if it's a B1 or 2 reverse, or can you tell?

Re: I know, Darkside dementia.

Kenny, great pics! I'll have a look later today or tomorrow, I've seen all this before but haven't seen the crack before. Can you clean the crack area with some acetone to be sure it's a crack?
This type of crack I believe is a listable attribute. Anywho, more to come my friend! :popcorn: :D

Re: I know, Darkside dementia.

Kenny, looks like your peace$ is heavily clashed from what I can see in the photo's. Looks like the eagles shoulder spike has been filed to remove the clashed mark (spike). I have a couple question as well on the rv and obv. I've circled each area where I have questions. On the rv, is that a crack a...

Re: 1925-p When to bug a friend

YUP! I believe the good Dr. is spot on....Looks like a VAM 11B. My 11C is MS63 and I can barely see the gouge left side of V in TRUST, yours look way more circulated so hard to tell. The die impression above PEACE in your pic is exactly in the same position as mine. If there is a die scratch to the ...

Re: 1925-p When to bug a friend

Geseas, Dr. Close's suggestion of looking at 11B is the closest to this rev. I discovered the 11C so I compared yours to mine. Before you send it to the good Dr. Check to see if there are gouges to left side of G in GOD and V in TRVST....they are very light gouges. Also, check above PEACE and see if...

Re: 1925-p When to bug a friend

Interesting, the Eagles neck feathers look similar to the 1926 S V2F3. Maybe when Dr. Close starts excepting possible new VAM's, he could have a look. I too, went thru the 25's and couldn't find anything similar, but I knew I'd seen the polished neck feathers before. Cool find!
Good luck! :popcorn:
