    Up for your opinion is an 1882 Morgan Dollar that I've owned now for over a dozen years. Bonus points for guessing the VAM (it's a MDS example but the markers are there) and extra bonus points for guessing the TPG. 1882.obv.1k.JPG 1882.rev.1k.JPG

    I’ll guess 65 in a PCGS rattler. No idea on the VAM but neat clashing and sweet coin.

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    If it was graded more than 12 years ago, I'd say that's a classic 64. Today, that would find its way into a 65 slab - but I still think 64 is the right grade for it. The marks on her cheek limit the grade, but the coin is quite attractive.

    Edit: Posted my grade opinion here, then realized I commented on this one on the other forum. :) I need to learn how to keep track of these threads! ;) :p

    It's fine to reply to both forums. Actually I tossed in a few crops over there to aid in the VAM identification because the optimizer over there tends to kill the photo quality. Hint - two of the crops are in the VAM description...https://www.coincommunity.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=326256

    Also - no one has guessed the TPG yet and I expect no one will...:troll:

    Another hint - the ring around the dollar is a foam gasket...Conder may be the only one to have a shot at the TPG...:troll::smuggrin:

    Did some research on the TPGs. Is it one of these?: Accugrade, CGI, IGS, or TCGS

    So far the TPG guesses are good ones but not correct.

    Not SEGS. It's smaller than a bread box but too large to fit in a PCGS box, barely.

    I think the guess the TPG was a bit unfair as I've only seen a couple of these and the last time was quite a few years ago. I'll reveal the label without the grade so's not to loose any interest or forum friends..:oops: obv.label2.5k.JPG

    AGS, eh? Never heard of them. Their grade is probably MS-66 or so. :D

    I am guessing that the slab says 65 but the coin in my opinion has enough distracting marks to keep it from gem MS64.

    I have to throw in the towel.....
    I dont have the patience to look at every single listing. I dont count online photos towards or against my vam success rate.
    Im probably batting around .700 right now.

    Ill go 64 but the holder might say 65
    I owned a single 82p in 64 many moons ago it was bought & sold for around $100
    not sure what they go for nowadays

    Yeah, that one wasn't easy as far as the VAM. AGS graded it MS64 and it's a MDS VAM-28. Apparently the EDS is desirable and of course that's not the one I have..http://www.vamworld.com/1882-P VAM-28
    Thanks for playing everyone!


    Not a 66 SD2017 but it very well could have been from an unknown TPG:)
