Re: 1879s Rev 78 (PAF) VAM-56

Mike I think Stacks will have a Un Happy customer on that one , but it was posted on what Vam it was and that PCGS made a mistake with the attribution . Just a lesson to read the fine print and dont trust the attribution unless you can verify it with good photos . So I guess Buyer Beware , but mista...

Stacks Bowers Auction , Check out this mistake on the last Stacks auction . It proves that you need read the fine print before a bid . https://auctions.stacksbowers.com/lots/view/3-GQLF4 Note PCGS did a bad job on the attribution and classified it as a VAM25 ,Stacks noted itwas incorrect and it was ...

Re: 1879s Rev 78 (PAF) VAM-56

The question on the F to VG I think was because the stated Fine Details on the cleaned holder and that wasnt accurate .Since a cleaned coin would be a lowest grade . So after the restore they really graded it , At least thats how Im taking it . So I would not consider a coin that stated a grade with...

Re: 1879s Rev 78 (PAF) VAM-56

The PCGS restore with attribution and Gold Shield on the VAM56 cost $80.00 . So that was pretty cheap considering . So thats a point of cost reference for the cost for you . I hope that helps . John PS: I bid on your VAM56 on GC already !!! So its a upgrade to mine now !!! LOL Always got to upgrade .

Re: 1879s Rev 78 (PAF) VAM-56

I really think the KEY is the striations , If there are None due to cleaning then you should be scott free on doing a restore via PCGS . Like I said Funkey toning that has worn can lead then to believe it was cleaned in the past with PCGS . So the restore section will take care of it and DEEM it OK ...

Re: 1879s Rev 78 (PAF) VAM-56

As soon as I get my 56 back I will post the price on the restore cost . I think prior to the PCGS restore being offered ,and weird toning that looked rubbed away because the coin might have been stored then re-circulated they deemed as cleaned . Now the restore service cam take care of it . So in my...

Re: 1879s Rev 78 (PAF) VAM-56

Well its better for GC to wait till they are clear on what you want to do , then just to post it and you get Un Happy with what they did . So I think this is a Good Thing ! But still they needed to communicate better with you . LOL . As us VAM guys pester you !! LOL ! I will still be in the hunt on ...

Re: 1879s Rev 78 (PAF) VAM-56

Yep I hear you , some times we buy stuff that is not up to par . The VAM stuff is hard to do on Ebay with PHOTOS that are Poor . Its hard to pick out things proper . Heck the 1879S rev 78 is a pain to get the proper VAM from a photo on Ebay . How many times have I not been able to see the broken R p...

Re: 1879s Rev 78 (PAF) VAM-56

Yep I have a Vam56 F-10 at PCGS that I sent in for restoration , It is in a PCGS holder that states cleaned , but I think it was recirculated after storage for awhile , and it had some oily gunk that I could see from it being encapsulated . Well I hope to get this one back restored with a regular de...

Re: 1879s Rev 78 (PAF) VAM-56

AHH That would make a Big Difference then ,they resent them the PCGS for a new case , That does take some time with PCGS , I have no idea how long it takes for the Green Bean CAC sticker . So the re encapsulation does take awhile, since PCGS is really slow . Now it makes more sense to the wait .
