1922 PEACE DOLLAR VAM-12A MOUSTACHE-TOP 50

Coins | Longstrider

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!

NOT PERFECT 1851 GOLD $1

Coins | Longstrider

I have here a coin denomination I have always been fascinated by: the Gold Dollar. In this case it is a 1851. You will notice it is graded by NGC as Unc Details Improperly Cleaned. This coin in problem free condition is listed as about $265-$300'ish. At the time I won this coin, it was at auction, I didn't have that much money in my coin budget. I was able to get this coin at less than half that price. I believe buying less than perfect coins is a good way to get coins you are interested in but can't afford right now. You have the coin to study and enjoy while you build up your budget for a better grade coin. Once you are able to get that coin of your dreams you have the other one to sell or trade. I should add that I only do this with third party graded coins. This is just my opinion I could be wrong. How does everybody else feel about this strategy? I hope to use this same strategy to buy a $3 gold Indian Princess Head! I think I will show this coin in the My Collection area to tell a little about it. I am proud of it!
