New to the forums, but I figured this is the place to be for the answer Im seeking.. So my first question right off bat is- Is this a collar clash featured on my 1880-P Morgan? First, when I saw it I was skeptical, so I got busy attributing. After narrowing down the coin to VAM 54 , I started looking online for more examples of VAM 54 to see if they might have the clash as well (As all the coins struck with the die post clash should have per the information I was reading).. Reached a dead end for a bit and broke away from the coin. Now Im looking at it again, I revisited the VAM page, and noticed the very first example (full obverse and reverse) they have pictured has the same clash as my dollar, and the 2nd example looks different as if it is an LDS example or maybe something different. Can anyone chime in and help provide me the invormation that my brain craves and my OCD requires?

Thank you :)

Well to the madness Mike
I believe you hit the nail on the head of the VAM-54.
