I Just cant win....

#1 Unread post by Nevada Cowboy »

I'm hanging up my Hat with the TPG's and possibly coin collecting. I'm done. Finished. Finito. You won't see a single Penny from me anymore.

I found a 1923 Peace Dollar that was struck with a Double Die on the Reverse.

It spans from the Birds leg Tails and goes to the Leaves

I paid for the Vam designation and I didn't get the Vam. I'm out of this business. I will most likely liquidate all my coins and go find another hobby. The TPG's just sucker gut punched the will out of me to keep going.

If NCG or PCGS don't have the VAM listed in their price guide they will not attribute. ANACS will and so will https://www.varslab.com/vamseal.html
Send it to them.

Sure thing as soon as I get it back from NGC i'll take some Close up's. Boy did I overpay on this one. Early Bird + Vam + Shipping. No way I'm gonna see the money back. I thought it was a MS65 grade myself. They are getting so tight it hurts 😭

Hey, C if you are still around. I still can't see your pics. Anyway, all of the TPGs are tightening up. My latest VAM scored a 62, and I figured it higher, but, well K Sara K Sara.

Adapting to new circumstances is a part of business, so, at this point crackouts are really risky right now. Also I generally expect only MS 60, but with this guy, well I had VAMitis at the time, so that is my defense.

The reason I sent these VAMs to ANACS because they are the only ones who would attribute these. I tend to be careful, so since I am a NGC member I went to their attribution area on the website, and found out that they only attribute certain VAMs so I EMailed them with both VAM# numbers, but they said they did not. So off to ANACS they went.

Even if they didn't attribute the Vam, the undergrade was a smack in the face especially for an 80 holder dollar fee. What are they Smoking ? That case costs .09 cents to produce
