1900-o Morgan offset mint mark

Post by ltldo » Tue Sep 29, 2020 12:04 am

Zoom in on mint mark, it appears off centered, high and left. (Press Ctrl when using the mouse scroll to zoom in.) Is this a new flaw or one previously found? I couldn't find any flaws listed that replicated this. Any help would be appreciated.

It would help to have photos of the date location.
But my guess without seeing the obverse would be VAM-15.

vam15/15a refers to double stars, the offset mint mark(not centered but high and left) is what i'm questioning, thanks for input

Please look at the VAM-15 page.
VAM-15 is listed for High O Shifted Left.

There is only 1 other 1900-O with a high left MM. There is a particular die crack on that variety I’m not seeing. No clash. Vam 15 is a safe bet.

I must thank you for the, new to me, method on zooming in on coins. It works on anything!
