About the Author


elcome to the sixth generation of Variety Vista. The look and feel remain the same, with a few tweaks to make the pages uniform and the E-Books consistent from book to book.  The content has been completed. You will still find all the die variety categories including design varieties, mintmark styles, and the ever popular doubled die, and RPM varieties, and they continue to be located in the Free Online E-Books. Just click on the colored buttons below.

The vast majority of the coins that collectors want me to attribute for them are merely post-mint damage.  Save your money and my time by posting photos of your coins on the CONECA forum at http://board.conecaonline.org/index.php. It is free, but you do need to register.  Once they confirm that you have a coin that needs to be seen for an in hand attribution, feel free to contact me for a varietyvista attribution appointment.  New Listings will receive a "V" prefix to indicate that they are varietyvista listings and NOT CONECA listings.

Are you looking for a new challenge? Perhaps an area where the cherrypickers are few and the cherries are many? You might want to check out our newest Ebook, Jefferson Nickel Bar Errors. This is the first comprehensive study of the Jefferson Nickel Bar error. The Bar error has been a long-time favorite of Jefferson Nickel collectors, but never before has it been studied with any depth. This Ebook documents 177 dies with Bar die breaks, many unknown in mint state. Can you complete a collection? Or maybe discover a new listing?

P.S. I continue to offer a wide assortment of die varieties from all denominations at some of the lowest prices you will find anywhere.
Why not give them a look?
