1902-o Morgan VAM-5a? - Not enough pictures for a Newbie to tell ...

Post by jgrinz » Sun Apr 21, 2019 4:48 pm

Is this a VAM 5a??
:geek: :ugeek: :roll:

A couple other side notes:
This a single olive reverse
A distinctive die scratch above the bow and below the tail feathers -rev
A Die crack from first star to the left of the date through the neck and out the other side not quite reaching the date. -obv
I Believe I see the die scratches under all the hash on the breast / Not sure on the tail feathering

Yup. That is a V5A. The reverse is shared with the V60 and V76A. If you want a challenge, go find a V60. It took me like 7 years to find one constantly on the hunt.
