1879-CC VAM-3 Large Over Small CC

Discovered by Leroy Van Allen, December 1965. Reverse discovered by Art Kagin October 1962. Revised: 2-29-12-oldcollectorcoins
This coin is a Top 100 Morgan VAM.
3 (revised) III2 3 ∙ C3c (Large Over Small CC, Doubled Date) (178) I-5 R-6
Obverse III2 3 – Doubled date with 18 strongly doubled at top outside, 8 also doubled at lower inside of upper loop, 7 at lower serif and 9 at
bottom outside of lower loop.
Reverse C3c – Rough raised metal above and within CC mint mark, a large over small mint mark, G in God filled on LDS specimens.

Comments:

  1. The VAM-3 Large over Small CC variety shows die chips around the mint mark believed to be a large mint mark stamped over a small one. The remaining mint mark chips are thought to be caused from attempts to obliterate the smaller underlying mint mark from the die with engraving tools.
  2. This variety has picked up the unfortunate and misleading nickname "Capped Die". It has nothing to do with a die cap. Leroy Van Allen refers to it once as the "so-called capped CC", since it looks like the letters are wearing little caps.
