Confirmed!! 1878 s VAM 111 Morgan

Post by collectinsince65 » Thu May 16, 2019 8:13 pm

Hey all
Yep it true!! :D
Great news from JB
Confirmed--It is a 78 s VAM 111!!
Rejoined the hobby in Sept 2018 after about a 20 year absence
Bought this coin unattributed back in Oct 2018.
Was first coin I listed on the Jan/Feb 2019 PCGS bulk submission form
It does have a couple of rim bumps and am sure it's why wasn't liked by PCGS much
Here are the images courtesy JB's fine photography

What did it get graded as by PCGS? F12 Details Damaged? How and when will you be dispersing of your 1878s Morgans?

You didn’t participate in the hobby for 20 years, likely you returned, purchased and now posted photos of the coin just to irritate the serious collectors here. You had your bit of frivolous fun and got to giggle a little. Immaturity without bounds.
