Re: Wow unbelievable

By the way, there is a 79s vam 46 in a VSS wrapper currently up for auction on the bay (# 123574936335). Bidding is at $1.25. So we know they have a minimum value of $1.25, but I will keep an eye on it.

Re: Wow unbelievable

It looks the value of the subject coin is all over the chart. I have a 79s, NGC MS 61, VSS VAM 43. What could I reasonably expect it to sell for, and how would you market it (auction, buy it now, etc)? I hope I'm not out of line asking questions in this thread. If I am, please send in the right dire...

Re: Anacs yellow/newer holders CAMEO ON hOLDER

Fascinating X 2 !!!!! Would it be correct that PCGS and NGC only use the word "cameo" when describing proof strike coins and not on business strike coins? And while on the subject, does ANACS have a price guide like PCGS and NGC? And finally, are we on the verge of high-jacking morganman's thread?

Re: Anacs yellow/newer holders CAMEO ON hOLDER

Thanks Rob. It confused me that none of the above examples included the word cameo. And what made it worse is that I thought "cameo" was used only in the description of proof coins. Your example is the first time I've ever seen the word "cameo" used on a business strike. Fascinating

O/T, I'M GUESSING

I sent some coins to a grading co. recently (not pcgs). They sent me a note stating that one of the coins is recommended for conservation. Before I start negotiating with them, I would like to hear some unbiased outside opinions. First of all, is conservation just a fancy word for cleaning? Does it ...

Re: Anacs yellow/newer holders CAMEO ON hOLDER

I'm confused now. None of the coins pictured above have the word cameo on the label. Anyway, Isn't the word cameo used in describing proofs, and not business strikes?

Re: Anacs yellow/newer holders CAMEO ON hOLDER

So the attribution you are looking for is "PL" or "DMPL", and not the vam #. Or maybe better put, we are looking for a condition attribution instead of a vam variation. Am I close?

Re: SOMBODY NEEDS A HUG

Thanks John, My new nickname for you is "Daddy", because your advice is always second to none. It will be our secret, and I won't tell anyone, and I won't ever ask for a loan. The main coin in the group of 3 was an 83s. I got it off the bay for $36 raw, and it turned out to be a Vam 2. My problem is...

Re: SOMBODY NEEDS A HUG

One more thought to ponder. What shall I tell the seller when he asks me why I want to return the coin for a refund?

Re: SOMBODY NEEDS A HUG

All good info but my question still remains. Would it be too much to ask the grader what was wrong with the coin that caused him to NG it? For example, if the coin had been whizzed, I'd like to know. I've never held a whizzed coin in my hand that I know of, and having one on file might be helpful fo...

Re: SOMBODY NEEDS A HUG

Hey John, Great info, and remember what I said earlier, "this is NOT aimed at JB." Like you said, comparison is a good way to learn do's and don'ts. We usually assume that the problem deals with improper cleaning, but the coin in hand, along with a brief statement from the grader, I feel would go a ...
