    Okay, I decided to treat myself to a nice Christmas present. I bought this Barber 1911 MS 63 PCGS Half, even though I don’t normally collect Barbers that expensive. It was beautiful, so I took the plunge.

    My biggest splurge was a couple years ago, my profile pic, not US though. But every coin is a splurge these days for me! My most recent also a Barber, but nothing that special.

    Good Morning.
    Please tell me how you can verify a coin advertised to be a VAM? I can only find a list, but some I have seen say they are VAM without COA or something that should prove it. I don't buy them because of these thoughts in my military head

    This date and mint mark don't come along too often without having been tooled, mishandled, or abused in some way. I couldn't pass up the opportunity. 1856-S Half  #1.jpg 1856-S Half  #2.jpg

    My photos just don't do justice to how much the fields reflect. Not graded yet but if I could get 65 DMPL I'd be ecstatic.

    Wow, you guys have picked up a slew of coins that are right up my alley.

    Few coins look better than a high-grade Barber IMHO.
    And few coins look worse than a low-grade one. Which is to say, I fully understand.

    I tried and can't get a photo to show my best PL Morgan to advantage.. Obviously the pros know things I don't. In hand this one presents a dramatic contrast between (frosty) device and (reflective) fields but the pics? Meh.


    Of course, PCGS didn't see much in it either. 65 with no DMPL, no Cameo, no nothing. Anyway not a splurge coin.

    I don't splurge in US coins any more, but the last time I did, it was for this.

    Worth every cent (or euro) that I paid for it.
