1879 S Morgan VAM help please

Post by Jodemyer » Fri Aug 26, 2022 5:36 pm

I have been trying to figure out which VAM this is. I am thinking it is VAM 38 but Liberty does not match. The closest Liberty I have found is VAM 73. Also at the 5th denticle impression there are at least three faint die gouges that start. The bust apprears to be beveled or just polished heavily under the chin and around in different places. The eagles left, viewers right wing is covered in die scratches or polishing lines as is the whole reverse. Any help appreciated!
