Re: 1878-S VAM-77

Re: 1882 o/s VAM-4 EDS

VAM 4 EDS is tremendously rare -- more so in my opinion than even the high (and very few) previous sales prices indicate. If you hope to sell it for anything close to full value it must be graded and attributed. PCGS has the biggest Registry program, so that's where the biggest values are. ANACS att...

Great pick Larry! An underappreciated coin in M.S., and super scarce in that grade.

Re: PCGS re-holder special.. blah

Jeff Oxman used to make regular VAM consulting visits to PCGS when Mike Faraone was in charge of attributions.
But that was in a faraway time and place, wasn't it? :cry:

Re: 1887-o VAM 13A MS63

0 sales is a big clue.

Neat cud, but It's not on the Top, Hot, Hit or WOW list, which means demand is minimal and VAM premium is little to none. This is the only sale I have in my database:

1887-O 13A 62 PCGS Mar-16 E $119

Re: 1880 vam 7 pcgs ms 61

That's a new record high for the VAM in my database -- and it may have been a decent buy judging from the previous record:

"QA" stands for "quit anticipating", doesn't it?
