Re: Favorite Non-List VAM

The latest one like this that made me take note is the 1924-S VAM 1A. It's the subject of my next column in Coin World. Of course, when I spot a non-list VAM I really like it has a habit of ending up on my list for the following year

Re: A tough set just got tougher

VAMs 24 (the hard pack reported is a 24A), 19A and 28. None of them are all that easy to find to begin with

Re: A tough set just got tougher

In either format. I haven't broken it down by hard versus soft, but I probably will sometime

A tough set just got tougher

The 78-CC GSA set is a real challenge. Just added a new slot for the only known GSA example of this well traveled dollar.
I'm not going to make anyone eyes bleed trying to figure it out. It's a VAM 7.

Now down to 3 78-CC VAMs unknown in GSA packaging, still hunting.

Re: 1900P VAM-16A HOT 50

Yeah, you took note of the pitting, then missed it in the titles for the individual pages. VAM 16A is not an official listing, so 'it's unofficial'

Re: 1882-CC 2B or 2C

VAM 2B1. I'd caution you about calling it EDS or LDS. It's already a minor stage designation that was further split. There's a limit to the minutia that even VAM collectors will tolerate. But seriously, the 'polishing roughness' is actually a C3 master hub deal. You'll see it show on multiple dies a...

OMG, it looks like the guys at the mint poked VAM 120 with stick then left it there.

Re: Back from Leroy

New pages have been setup and VAM-20 eliminated. Let me know if I need to make any changes. Multiple thank you's for doing this - again. The 79 VAM 117 is perfect. I made a minor change to the 24 VAM 1T page, but I can't fix the spacing for the remaining plates. I added a comment to the 21 VAM 89 p...

Re: 1899O,morgen gouge on Eyes

You've got a bunch of secondary markers and not much that would get listed otherwise. There's no apparent doubling or repunching. No die breaks or even a crack pattern to tie it to later stages of varieties that are listed. That leaves you with date and mintmark position. The date is 'almost near' b...

Re: Back from Leroy

Yes, I'd appreciate all the help I can get. The bare framework for the two pages and their plates would help a great deal. If you feel like doing any more than that, I'll stack the thank you's up.

Re: Back from Leroy

I just went after VAM 20. As far as I know VAM 20A is an unrelated but similar marriage. As I read it, there's still a 20A but no 20
