Re: My First Try at Conservation

I've spent thousands of hours experimenting with coin conservation. Cheap and common foreign coins seemed like a good place to start. I'm not trying to fool the experts into grading a coin higher than it ought be, but to stop ongoing corrosion and increase eye appeal. Other than an acetone bath, I h...

Re: Auction Protocals

Thank you both for your insights. I ask because I have, in the past, notified one of the most noted auction houses of a mis-attribution on the holder, and was treated with such regard that I felt as though I hadn't spent enough money with them to have my opinion considered. Despite my documentation....

Auction Protocals

I see one of the larger auction houses offering a VAM that was not correctly attributed.
It it considered a courtesy to inform them of the error, or should I just keep quite and let it be between the house and the buyer?
Thanks for any input.

Dittos on the thanks and recognition.
Got a tiger by the tail and another on my backside. When I get them under control, I'll be back on a regular basis.
Thanks to all.

Re: The Speech...

Congratulations Rob. And thanks for sharing your story. One of my fondest memories is when you helped me sort out the differences between the 1889-P Bar Wing VAM-19A and VAM-22. Unfortunately personal responsibilities have taken me away from my coins in the last couple of years, and will probably co...

Re: 1904-O with Clashed Obv G

As it is difficult for me to attend coin shows, I have to identify VAMs from photographs.
Unlike in-hand examination, I may not see the listable features.
So I often rely on die markers.
My first guess is that your coin may be the VAM-2A.
Enclosed are some die markers, let us know if they are a match.

Re: Strike Doubled Repunched Mint Mark

Very nice example.
I haven't been able to VAM as much as I'd like lately, but I'm glad I checked in for this one.
Thanks John.

Re: Back From LVA

Nicely done Bob. I'm anxious to see pics of the 24-P, VAM-1CQ as the description fits a coin I've been pondering.
Keep up the good work.

I'm slated to post 9-9-18.
Not sure about the editing procedure, maybe someone can point me to the instructional info.
If some of the others are chomping at the bit to post, I could always be bumped some.
