In the News - VAM Sets Record at GC
Ian Russell on Sun, Oct 27, 2013 10:51:15 PM
Last week, a group of bidders competed for a rare VAM being offered by GreatCollections.  99 bids were received and the final price set the record for the issue.

The coin, a 1921-S Thornhead was one of just two known PCGS MS-63 examples - both tied for the finest of the variety.  The final bid was $3,850 (including the 10% buyer's fee).

This appeared in the October 25, 2013 issue of The View, a specialist publication on VAMs:
