Favorite Coins by VAM

We don't always like to admit it but we have favorites among the things that surround us, and so it goes with coins.  In our collection for most VAMs we have more than one example and these vary by grade and eye appeal.


So looking at each VAM which coin sticks out as our favorite?  In a few cases we have only one example, so those are obvious.  But grade or color is not always the factor.  Sometimes a coin becomes our favorite because we know how hard it was to find or afford.


But this is not science, it is a popularity contest of sorts.
