1891 MORGAN VAM 10 slanted date / raised mint mark

#1 Unread post by Coin Mule »

WHO let the VAMS out, I really like finding these in the wild so here are the pics. I think it is a VAM 10, yes I do. So CONECA dude I have heard from an unnamed source that the official designation for someone who has two VAMS is "Vamolicious", if you have 3 to 7 your are a "Vamalator", and more than 7 you are a "VAMASAUROUS REX", was my source correct in this.

Where is the list of translation for acronyms? I M CMPLTLY LST. I a m older so we always took the time to use full words in my day. Hard to learn when you can’t find an encyclopedia. By the way I am a big fan of the Morgan dollars. I am thinking about starting a collection of standing liberty halves .
