West Coin, do you think this will grade numerically or go the details route?

Pawnstars expressed interest in having it on their show. Thoughts on if the exposure will be beneficial?

That's a no-brainer. Your scar-face will get celebrity status.

I'm not making a call on a coin like this without being in hand, but that reverse does look weird. The obverse looks okay from the photos, and rainbow toning always seems to up the value. The obverse is the focal point of the variety and the color doesn't interfere or detract from the die break, so that is a plus. Definitely nicer in appearance than the MS64 last sold, but I don't know if it beats it in a straight grade shoot out.

Are we taking guesses on what Rick's lowball offer is going to be?

While a trip to Pawn Stars would get out the word on this pretty dang rare variety and possibly increase VAM or coin collectors, I can't see him actually owning this (unless he has a quick flip in mind, which I'm sure he does), I can also see the coin appearing on the show and getting either a no sale by the seller/actor, or selling (fake, due to scriptwriters) then returned at the end of the show. It's an idea. The whole show is pretty well scripted anyways.

As to my call on the grade you asked for, I already said MS62 but MS63 even a or + designation with a CAC green bean would be my thought after more consideration and seeing the extra photos. Good luck in however you play it, this is a super cool VAM and an extraordinary TOP 100 rarity, besides the 78 VAM-44 I think it's one of the TOP3!
