So here I am trying to save money for the ANA Anaheim Show. Doesn't sound like a big deal does it. Then I get an alert from ha.com that a coin I am looking for has come up for bid. I check it out and it's a very nice 1923 MS 64 Peace Dollar VAM-1B Extra Hair. I enjoy Vam Peace and Morgan Dollars. Especially ones you can see the deal that makes it a noteworthy, Top 50, VAM without any magnification. I put a modest bid on it and before you know it I won it. Oh well. It's a beauty. I have included a photo I took from VAMworld so you can see the extra hair clearly. I had a bit of trouble photographing this coin as it's fairly blast silver color. What do you all think. I already know I'm weak! Thanks for looking!!
I enjoy collecting coins and old currency, just as the rest of you do. I have a large variety of nice coins and paper currency in my collection but lately I have developed a taste for collecting junk silver coins. Every time I make a purchase to add a coin to my collection I have to buy some junk silver as well. I have become an junk silver addict and now I'm known as the "Silver Queen" amongst my fellow collectors. I walk into my local coin dealer and when they see me coming through the door they automatically pull the junk silver tray out for me and put it on the counter. Yes, even the local coin dealer knows I'm a junk silver addict. I always get teased and told I have a nose on me that can sniff junk silver out miles away. Does anyone else out there like junk silver coins too? Please share your story.
