My pics are all turned 90 degrees when I upload. Anyone else have the same problem and know how to fix it

Welcome to VAMworld.
From a quick look my first guess would be VAM-21.
Do you have more Morgans?

Hi
Thanks for your reply.
A VAM 21? Does that mean double date?

I have a few Morgan’s, looking to add more to my collection.
Thx
D

Just a guess - the site may reorient pictures to have large dimension of pic in horizontal orientation. You might try and edit/crop pic to have long dimension in your picture for posting in the vertical axis, and then reload/repost one as a test.

Correction - I messed that up - have long dimension of your pic in horizontal dimension, such that when coin is vertical and long dimension is horizontal. Then perhaps it won't be reoriented.

Hello!

It could very well be a VAM-21 which does have a doubled date. Its hard to tell in those photos.

If the feature i circled is indeed the die chip marker it is a 21. The date is in the right place.

You can view VAM-21 here > http://www.vamworld.com/wiki/1880-P_VAM-21
