1883-CC VAM-5B? Subvariety w/Strike Doubling?

Have 1883CC in an GSA Holder with NGC MS63 grade with what appears to be a VAM-5B but with some crazy doubling character on the reverse. After reading the "Do you think you have a Double Die" (great resource!) it appears this has strike doubling mixed with die doubling. Both Wings are doubled on top...

IDEAS? 1884-O VAM-48A? or Something else?

Have a curious one, here. The signs are all pointing to a solid VAM-48 but this coin has deep polished grooves on Obverse and Reverse. Has all the standard stuff, cool angular break above the cap, interesting die breaks on Reverse "UNITED" through the wing and left wreath to wing. Clear O/O, and rus...

1883CC GSA NGC MS-62 VAM-4B??

Another found in my stack of GSA Hoard NGC Graded coins. It appears I have two of these in my stack both have all the right markers. This is one has a strong pinned wing the other slightly fainter. The description states an R6 rarity but I have nearly two identical coins from the same stack. If this...

1883CC GSA Rare Find VAM-5D?

Another one in the stack of GSA NGC Graded coins i just got back as MS-62.

Looks like a VAM-5D to me although the die break at the cap is early stage. What do you folks think?

1878-CC GSA Holder NGC MS62 VAM-13??

Purchased a lot of box sealed GSA Hoard coins about 15 years ago. Just cracked them out of the box had them certified through NGC with variety. I was convinced this coin is a clear VAM-13 but NGC does seem to want to issue the first MS VAM 13. The only additional difference is the strong doubling on...
