    "The VAMSlab provides collectors and specialist in Morgan and Peace dollars with

    · Accurate attribution of your Morgan and Peace dollar varieties using the latest, cutting-edge attribution information

    · Encapsulation of your coin in a Coin World ANACS size holder

    · The name and detailed description of the variety of your coin ON THE HOLDER

    · A photograph of the key diagnostic of the variety as it appears on your coin ON THE HOLDER

    · A label that can be read from the top that aids in identification when stored in slab storage boxes

    The idea of the VAMSlab is to help you identify the VAM number of the coins you already have. Variety Slabbing Service is not a grading service, and the VAMSlab does not contain an opinion as the to grade of the coin."




    "CONECA is a national numismatic organization devoted to the education of error and variety coin collectors. CONECA focuses on many error and variety specialties, including doubled dies, Repunched mintmarks, multiple errors, clips, double strikes, off-metals and off-centers -- just to name a few. It publishes an educational magazine, The Errorscope, which is printed and mailed to members bimonthly. CONECA offers a lending library, examination, listing and attribution services; it holds annual meetings at major conventions (referred to as Errorama) around the country, and offers auction services to its members."

    The "VAMSlab" link above is outdated.

    The name of the service is Variety Slabbing Service. While the specialties are Morgan and Peace dollars by VAM, other varieties, including, but not limited to bust halves, early copper, Cherrypicker's Guide, and CONECA varieties that can be identified are also attributed. I can be contacted here through PM or through the e-mail on the website with further questions.
