Boy, did I get lucky

I saw this 1904 O PCGSMS63 and looked at the eagle's right wing,
for the small oval gouge and I saw it, but I couldn't see the die
crack running down to the U, on the obv, but I put a high max bid
on it anyhow.
I then saw an attributed vam 37A R-7 and I could bearly see the
obv die crack running down to the U and then I looked and saw,
that I had won it.
Hip Hip Hooray, LUCKY ME
Below are some pictures, see if you agree.
Enjoy, Bert

As I was looking at the Mint Mark I felt myself starting to petrify. I immediately looked away. Nice one Bert. Be careful.

Thank you Wayne, Pat, Loren, Mike, Ant and Rod.
No, John, it wasn't attributed.
For me, that kind of takes all of the excitement out of 'treasure hunting',
these magnificent silver dollars.
If you haven't found one yet, I found the best way, is to look at the reverse,
for that gouge, on the eagle's right wing,.
As you could tell, I was very excited, when I saw that and then won it.
