   Here I have a nice coin for everyone to see. It's a 1922 Peace Dollar in AU-55 Grade from ANACS. A lot of people don't care much for ANACS but you will find them dominating in grading different VAMs and other varieties. This particular coin is a VAM-12A or Moustache. It has a die break from the nose to the end of the upper lip. It's just the way I like VAMs. Ones that can be seen with the naked eye. This coin is also in the Top 50 Peace Dollar VAMs to collect. I won this coin after some spirited bidding on my favorite web auction site. It also is just starting to tone around the edges. I hope you enjoy looking at this coin. I understand the VAM coins are not for everyone. I look forward to your comments. Thanks for looking!

I agree! I love to be able to see the variety and this is a great example of that! Peace Dollars seem to have quite a few different VAM varieties. Way Cool Longstrider! : )

That is one cool variety. If I cannot see the variety without magnification I don't bother! Thanks for this!
