Maybe it would be a worthwhile exercise to look at other examples of this date and the year before and compare multiple mint marks to this coin. You might find they all exactly conform to the same style. There's a good book on Morgan and Peace Dollar varieties that shows all of the known mintmark s...

So far every time I tried to post this picture it shows up here upside down. Trying again.
5 times I have tried to post this picture and 5 times it shows up here upside down. The coin is supposed to be upside down in the picture, not right side up. Then the 5 over c stands out.

The wrong image keeps posting. Sorry.
This picture is supposed to load upside down. As it is it looks like a severe PMD. Rotate the image 180 degrees and it turns into a near perfect 5.

And the mint mark. Same shape. Same left lean. Same bar. Not made with an S punch.

Probably just a hit. I'd suggest taking a look at the VAM 20 listing. Is there a die line at the top of the throat just under the chin?
Good call! Yes it does. Although there are some differences and similarities on the other pick up points, like the ear is different...

Re: Possible new finds

It is quite possible also that the mint polished off any evidence of the clash from the field to keep from having to rebuild a die. And the L inside the B is in the high point of the B. And I believe that I have evidence of the mint doing just that on another Morgan. For the dies to have clashed th...

Re: Possible new finds

Maybe it's time to forget about what you think you see and look thru the listings for marriages with the mintmark tilted strongly to the left. There's only a couple of options. Imagination can help you once you understand the basics within this field, but honestly right now you are doing yourself a...

Re: Possible new finds

To better understand clashed dies and get some visualization help, there is a great resource on VAM world: http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/wiki/Attribution_101#Die_Clashing Hi! Thanks for your help! I have already searched out that link months ago. It helped with other Morga...
