Michael S. Fey, Ph.D., President of Rare Coin Investments (RCI)
and co-author of the Top 100 Morgan Dollar Varieties: The VAM
Keys announced today that he is now accepting pre-publication

A Decade of Top 100 Insights offers wisdom, experience and
knowledge from the world's most recognized experts on the

and you'll get a glimpse of VAM history unfolding before
your eyes!"

considerable talents to work in assembling all the pertinent
data to make your quest for those elusive VAMs as easy as can
be".  Leroy Van Allen advises, "This book is a 'must buy' for
all silver dollar collectors and dealers".

The book offers digital images of new discoveries, ultra rare
8TF varieties, attribution guides to 1878-s B1 reverse (long
nocks), 1888-O Oval O's, 1899-O "micro o" varieties, and Hot

Census (Top 6 certified coins), population reports and analyses,
reports on new record prices, and insights into the best Top
100 varieties in the most optimal grades for both collecting
and investing.

Through such guest writers as Leroy Van Allen, Jeff Oxman,
Bill Fivaz, Larry Briggs, Mark Kimpton, M.D., John Roberts,
