1901 VAM 3 Shifted Eagle Was Correct Answer!


We thought no viewer emailed Liberty Shops Auction with the correct answer in our “Win a Silver Eagle” game, but we have a winner, after all–Charles Lang–whose email with the correct time stamp went into the wrong folder. That’s technology for you! Congratulations to Charles, who works at Southwest Bullion and Coin and is a regular viewer of Proxiblog.

    Question: Study the device depicted in this partial photo of a coin won in a Proxibid auction and inform Sean via this email the exact date and VAM designation of the coin. You can use Vamworld as a reference … unless you know the diagnostics by sight (and you should).


The coin was won with a $240 bid in an August 17, 2012 Leonard Auction session on Proxibid. It slabbed at PCGS at XF40, worth $1600.

This is the type of bargain you can score on Proxibid coin auctions if you know numismatics. We hope Proxiblog is helping in that effort!

Proxiblog thanks Sean Cook and Liberty Shops Auctions for sponsoring this week’s Proxiblog and for donating to our scholarship fund. While we welcome donations from our audience, Proxiblog invites high quality houses for sponsorship because we want to promote the best on Proxibid to our viewers.
