Is it just me or is anyone else, while ecstatic for Wayne, beginning to feel themselves slide into a bit of a malaise? 🙃😔

Thanks guys! This is truly an amazing VAM. The depth of the clashes and the damage done to the neck and back of the cap is unreal. I'll post some additional photos and update the page with them.

A couple more zeroes than what he paid.

(Note to nitpickers: This question is a good one in the context of this find, is not a cold "what's this worth" question, and the power of knowledge would be lost if the question had been posted in the WIW forum, so I'm allowing it.)

Approximately. The way I'm counting zeros allows for parts of a zero. Adding 2 1/2 zeroes would be about $9500.

Quick search of Heritage turned up nothing. @DHalladay might know, but this is one of those "cold, dead hands" VAMs for many. Any sales have probably been by private treaty.

This is all I have in the last 11 years. I know that other additional private sales have taken place, but neither the buyer nor seller have shared the information with me so I haven't included them.

1889- 23A 58 PCGS Nov-18 PP $29,500
1889- 23A 58 PCGS Sep-09 PP $24,500
When in doubt... don't.

We all know that pcgs has 5 coins.
1–au 55
3–au 58
1–ms63
The au 55 was found by REMMY who lives in St LOUIS.
I sent it in for him and got it graded, he later sold it.
There was one found in book of dollars by guy named Brown, it ended up in nice au 58 holder.
Ash bought it and crossed it to pcgs, I got it from Crae a vam guy here a few years back.
I traded it to Pete for his ms 63.
He sold the au 58 to Ash.

I have had hold of 3 of the 5 known till this one turned up today.
Rare bird and I do not think the prices are going down just because this one turned up.
I will keep prices to myself.
