Vam Information

 

Vam Collector Information

Vam Defined 

  • Vam Name Defined: The word VAM comes from the authors initial's of the Encyclopedia of Morgans and Peace Dollars by  Leroy C. Van Allen and A. George Mallis = VAM is  Van = V,  Allen = A, and Mallis = M  = VAMVan Allen, and Mallis
  • Vam Variety: Morgan or Peace Dollar have varietes these are like errors on the coin. 
  • Rarity of Vams: There are Two Rarity Scales one is The Seldom Scale R-1 common to R-8 Ulra Rare or the Bowers Universal Rarity Scale URS-0 none to URS-20 250001 to 500000 known. In some of my listing usually R-6 Very Rare and above I include the table in the listing. When Using Bower's when a lising is URS-9 to URS-1 I will use for Top 100 Vam's.
  • Top 100 Vam's: Are the Top 100 Vam's to collect and can be very expensive as the grade goes up. The higher the grade the higher the rarity and the premium that you will pay for the coin.
  • Hot 50 Vam's: Another group of vam's which vam collectors are Hot to find.
  • Hit List 40: 40 Vam Varieties that have been added to be difficult to find and expenise to buy.
  • Top 50 Peace Dollar: The 50 best Peace Dollar Vam varieties to collect.

Grading Services that will certify ceritan Vam Varieties

Vam Attribution What You Need 

  • Good Books like the ones referenced above or go to Vam World on line
  • Good microscope 20X minimum with excellent light make sure to rotate coin so light hits the coin just right to see the vam.
  • When attributing keep in mind the Obverse and Reverse Die Types.
  •  Some varieties you can see with the bare eye, some with eye piece, but it is best to view Vam's with a scope.  Especially when viewing clashed die coins such as clashed Obverse "n" In "s" "t" "D" "O", and reverse "M" etc.
