1878 7/8 VAM-????????

Post by Prider358 » Tue Jan 19, 2021 3:58 pm

I have tried to attribute this coin but have failed miserably. Could it be a EDS, MDS or LDS of a particular 7/8 VAM??????
Would surely appreciate some help here please, thanks all.

Good hint Juan.

Steve,
I think you already posted one of these same VAMs a year or two ago. :D
I might be wrong. :(

When you see a weak 7/8 you then look at the eagles talon. If its doubled you then check the cotton bols/leaves and that tells the tale of whether you have the most rare or most common 7/8 😉

1878 7/4 VAM-33, I believe. If this is correct, then thanks for your help which is much appreciated, thanks, stay safe all.
Thank you, Lee, Vam-mysterio and CascadeChris.

Gotta love them MORGAN VAMS, keeps me going.
