1879-CC Vam-6

Post by Genesis156 » Wed May 27, 2020 3:23 am

Recently bought a 1879-cc morgan that has a “centered” cc. Looks like a vam-6 to me. Been looking for examples but have only found it here on Vam world. Is this a fairly scarce Vam? The coin would grade around vf20 but has been cleaned. Any thoughts?

No premium at all, and cleaning hurts the value by -- my best guess -- 25-50%. There are a lot of 1879-CCs around and there are a lot that have been cleaned. Buyers have plenty to choose from, no matter what grade they want.
When in doubt... don't.

VAM 6 is rather scarce, and once thought to be counterfeit until a better grade specimen showed up, but there's no premium attached to it.
