Re: Press feeder/ejector gouges - Are these counted as VAM varieties?

Unfortunately they somehow got listed by LVA and so he has decided to run with it. I, personally, do NOT think they should constitute a reason to separate them out as a distinct VAM. I think they are a striking issue and not a die thing so they do not belong in our litttle club. I was not ask but th...

Re: 1882-S VAM-36A/37A die chip wing tip

The die chip (Eagle's right wing tip) is on a coin that is made from the exact same die pair as what made the 1882-S VAM1B Discovery piece (now known as VAM37A). Said discovery piece is an earlier die state as it does not have the tiny chip on the wing tip. All my VAM37 (8) and 37A (4) have the reve...
