I had a fun day yesterday visiting 2 shops I had never been to before. The first shop, is where I found this baby. I was looking at a tray of Morgans all in protective 2x2's. I started with the earliest dates, and so this one came up pretty quick. It was the 3rd coin I looked at. I didn't find much else except for an 1880/79 VAM-6.

I attributed this one as a VAM-56. It still has a touch of luster around the devices.
