Cherrypicked a PCGS 63 Wounded Eagle

Post by vincar73 » Wed Mar 13, 2019 11:44 am

Some of you know that i usually buy/cherrypick Morgan VAM's in Italy/Europe but sometimes i go randomly looking for VAM's on US dealears site. A couple of weeks ago i've been looking for VAM's on a US dealears (30+years of numismatic experience) site and came across this beautiful PCGS 63 1881-S VAM-54B. On pics (same first 3 pics down here) it was clearly visible it was 54B and when i saw the price of 58$ + shipping i was surprised but i tought that maybe seller woulndn't send the exact coin pictured ..... moreover the seller didn't ship internationally that was a problem for me... I therefore decided to accept the risk of not receiving the same coin pictured and made a forwarding address in the US on myus.com and i've bought the coin for 58$ +8$ for shipping. Today i received the coin and :o :o :o :o it was really the exact coin pictured. Unfortunately I had to bear other costs (25$ forwarding shipping and 20$ custom fees) but i think i've got it for a nice price :D :D

Holy Italian meatball sandwich Batman! You found a broken bird on American soil and had the audacity to export it?! You suck! Repatriate that bird now on medical grounds!

In all seriousness, amazing find. These are so incredibly hard to cherrypick due to the "in your face" die break similar to one of the mid-late scarface's. How do you say "YOU REALLY, REALLY SUCK" in Italian? :mrgreen:

You would think i would have run accross one either from pickin or my
large raw inventory- but no luck thus far-
kinda simply amazing how some vams seem to fall into ones lap and
others simply elude.
Congrads and great great pickin-----------You suck IMHO LOL

Sure i did .... Sorry Rob but I forgot to mention this.
I'm more focusing on HL40 because i actually have 2 ultra rare registered (1878 VAM-14.7 and 1878 VAM-166).
My WOW list is filled at 22% + 9 details WOW VAMs not added to registry
