    Very niiice gets at $66 for the toned one and $48 for the other. These are pretty scarce in general and finding one with nice color is almost unheard of. You can run into this VAM from time to time but for me to find 2 within a week was crazy, especially one with color!... So tell me, what are these things?

    @SuperDave ;)

    Theres only 1 very near date listed for this vam, and i doubt you would be bragging about it. So that lead me to the privately made section. V59? As superdave said- i cant believe some of the Edited you come up with

    So that would be 22C2 (edit: maybe one each of 22C1 and 22C2? Looks like the O mintmark is different on each coin.)

    Looking at them again, I am not so sure anymore. I think V22 is correct, it's not a micro-O but appears to be a medium O tilted right.

    Boom goes the dynamite! Both are VAM 22C1 "family" sterling silver contemporary counterfits.

    Same obverse die but not the v5 micro-o reverse.

    That's what I figured after I had a look at the V22 description at vamworld. But I corrected my statement before you confirmed V22 :)

    can you provide a little more history on these counterfeits? I have never heard of them.
