As per "Guide Lines for New Die Varieties" from VAMworld home page:

Submitting Coins
Before submitting any coin, it is recommended that photos of the new feature be posted to VAMWorld discussion board for review by other collectors. This can save much time and expense that would be incurred in submitting a coin that is not considered listable in the Catalog.

All coins that are submitted need to have a description of what the feature is that should be added to the Catalog.

Morgan dollars are submitted by sending to either Variety Slabbing Service (VSS) or to ANACS with Variety Attribution Research, along with respective fees for attribution, shipping, handling, and return insurance. Coins that are found to be new varieties will be added to the Catalog without further action needed by the submitter.

Peace dollars are handled by David Close. Before shipping a coin, send a photo in an email to dkclose428@gmail.com. Peace dollars submitted to ANACS or VSS that need to be examined as possible new varieties will be returned with a letter describing the possible new variety so the coins can be submitted to David Close. Fees for Peace dollars are the same as those charged by VSS.

The pinned thread in the announcement section at the top of the discussion forum discusses this. Morgans are in full swing, talk to David Close about Peace dollars.
