General discussion board about VAMs, but no buy/sell offers

Picked this up because it didn't look quite right. Near slanted date. But the mint mark is round and high. Kind of looked like the micro O, but too big for it. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

I swear, someday I will learn how to grade Peace Dollars!
The mintmark seems to have taken a hit that flattened it upwards and to the left at some point, along with a lot of circulation wear. Very difficult to attribute VAMs in worn coins like these because so much detail is missing. Unless you can see die gouges or crack patterns that lead you in a certain direction, its pretty much guessing. I don't see anything in your photos that would attribute it as part of the listed contemporary counterfeits. I think I would call it a garden variety VAM-23 and move on.
