1883-O is one of the most common Morgan dollars, with a large number of the uncirculated specimens coming from the Treasury release in November 1962. It is commonly found in high grade, but as strike can be a problem, it is important to be selective. Prooflike coins are not rare, but can vary in quality. There are several repunched mint marks for the date, but the most prominent is the Top 100 VAM 4. The Hot 50 VAM 22A, and VAM 36A varieties both have a light E clash on the reverse, and highlight the die clashes for the date. The VAM 1C has a rippled reverse die from being overbuffed and too soft. The VAM 52 is known with a counter-clockwise die rotation of up to 77°.
