  1. 3676422-016 is listed as a "P" in your database. It is actually and "S". please look at the photo. thanks John
  2. It might be residue from a holder it was in. Right near the top of your photo it appears to thin to almost nothing. If were a clad it would be in the center and pretty even all the way around. Also there were no clad nickel planchets and it is definately not struck on a quarter or dime.
  3. I'll throw my two cents in. I would not be buying 100oz bars. I bought 4 of them before the big run up last time. I had a hard time selling them. Problem is, I paid 600 for them but when silver went over 40 it was real hard to find someone to give you 4000. I did sell 2. I think 15 is a pretty good price, near bottom. However If the economy stays perking along silver wont rise much if any. Look at it this way, there have been 2 big runups since the 70s, so 20 or so years apart. Next one will come but might be ten years out. Also you mentioned EBAY. I would not buy any silver bars from EBAY. The major bullion sellers are priced pretty competitive. I use JMBullion and have bought from others. Too many fake large bars out there. Get burned on one for alot of money is just not worth it.
  4. Go to vamworld and look at the vams by date. There are a ton of s/s vams. However that is not the only thing the you are looking for. Most of the s/s also have some doubling on the date. So wade down thru the s/s and look at the other diagnostics. If you find one dioagnostic that does not fit then its not that one. You will need a loop so you can look more closely. Some of the date doubling is hard to see.
  5. OK, first off all morgans are VAMs. A VAM is just a recognized die pair. Also die cracks do not make a VAM unless they have a die displacement or large cud. Displacement is where one side has sunk. There are many many Morgans with die cracks some dates more than others. The 1921 seems to have alot of them. If a Morgan does not fall into one of the known die pairs it is usually called a VAM 2.
  6. You might be looking at pvc contamination. Most proof coins do not get hazy, they might tarnish. The ike dollars were bad about this from the holder they were put in from the mint. If your coins are form that era its probable. Search for articles on pvc removal and what it looks like.
  7. I like that design. I have a few myself. Sorry by I stink at grading gold coins.
  8. You need to go to vamworld and look at the diagnostics for a vam-6. There is more than just the cc touching the wreath. For instance double cotton leaves. You also need to know which reverse it has and if the arrow shaft is long or short. While you are there you can look at the other vams and see that is does not match them more closely. In the right column there is a button for vams by date.
  9. Machine. See how the G and O are very skinny. In a true double the original letter would be full size with the extra letter beside or partially beside. When the metal is just squished down and out it is because the coin or die skipped.
  10. No it does not happen alot. The mint looks for lamination problems in the sheets but it does get thru sometimes. Yours is a pretty nice example. Most laminations are more like small cracks. Having one that the delaminated part is still attached is nice. If it were my coin I would have certified. Getting it in a holder will protect it. Its value would probably not exceed the cost to get if certified however.

    NCS of a coin

    When I make a submission of a group of coins to NGC how would I specify that one of the coins needs to go to NCS first.
  12. right now a ms66 is on ebay for $15.99 and a ms67 is $33.99 both already certified by ngc.
