Coins | It's Mokie

Well a little over a month ago, I blogged about a 1926-S Peace Dollar that I had picked up during the PAN show CoinZip auction. I had bought it simply to support the club and I had received it for the minimum bid of $20 plus 10% for the club. At that time, I had no idea it was a Top 50 Peace Dollar VAM. But since frequent blogger Longstrider had made me aware of this segment of the hobby, I visited the VAMWORLD 2.0 site, went to the listing under 1926-S and found a DOT. My find has been officially certified by the Variety Slabbing Service (they only do Peace and Morgan VAMS, and they do not provide a grade). I think turnaround from sending the Dollar to receiving her back was about 10 days. I am very pleased with my first wild VAM find. If you want to read about more VAMS, and find your own, please visit VAMWORLD 2.0 at:

Pretty cool. I don't have the patience to look for VAM's but I am glad that you do. Nice coin.

I've a question for the VAM'ers; Are VAMS predominate on Morgan and Peace dollars because they are easier to find, or are they also on small coins like dimes?
