    IMG_6620.jpg IMG_6612-9.jpg IMG_6630.jpg IMG_6616-9.jpg this came in the mail today , what I thought was a nice coin for the grade blew me away. I am so happy with it.
    I personally think it was under graded quite a bit.
    I did the best what I could for photos

    This is an early die stage of VAM 11A. I see this stage with some regularity, always uncirculated. The VAM 11A discovery coin is VF (I think) and has wider cracks, but the more of the BU EDS coins I see, the more I wonder if the wear on the discovery coin is making the cracks seem wider or if they really are wider die breaks.

    MS-64 is absolutely insane. MS-65 at the least.

    It is a 65 by today’s standards. My guess was 64

    SSDC registry shows 1 66, 4 65s, 4 64s currently registered as VAM 11A. For regular VAM 11, 4 65s (1 each PL, DMPL) and a 64.
