1878-CC Morgan

Post by mvgebhard » Sat Feb 29, 2020 4:32 pm

So I have 2 of these, both raw/circulated. My question is that the reverses are different; 1 has a short middle arrow nock, and one has a long arrow nock (B1 reverse?). I know there is a 1878-s VAM 58 which is the long arrow nock, but I can't find anything on a long arrow knock on 1878-CC. I believe there is a 1878-CC VAM which mentions the remnants of the long nock (of which I don't see); but no mention of the the long nock itself...other than I read somewhere its a B1 reverse. This is a first (VAM question) for me, so be nice LOL - thanks for any input/explanation.

Hey mvgebhard,

There are two types of reverse dies used on 78-CC mintage.
B1 reverse is Long Nock, B2 reverse is Short Nock.

The other main differentiator to help narrow down attribution is whether the fourth star on the right is broken or not.

I find this page helps me with finding the correct VAM attribution quickly:

Good luck with attributing these two! Let us know if you have any other questions, and let us know what you find out!

Yeah, it's about a 50/50 split between B1 and B2 hub stages for this issue. Couple of pictures would probably get you an attribution

Awesome! Thanks so much! It was my intent not to get into VAMS, but jeez, it is pretty neat. I'll post what I find out!
