1878-P VAM-84A
Super CD and Top 30 1878 Variety
Collaboration by SD Members
OBVERSE ATTRIBUTES: This smartly clashed die has left an incused n of In exiting Liberty's Neck Line. The In is the first word of the Reverse Motto, In God We Trust. The first letter of the Obverse Legend, LIBERTY, is washed out.
Obverse Markers: A crack is seen running from the Denticles, under the 2nd Right Star, and into the bottom left tip of the 3rd Star. The crack could reach to the right tip of the 4th Star in some later minted specimens.
REVERSE ATTRIBUTES: This clashed die has produced a partially raised E below and to the left side of the Eagle’s tail feathers. The E is located in the Obverse Legend, LIBERTY. Only the vertical bar and middle serif of E can be seen. The clashing also left a raised Obverse Designer’s Initial M above the d in the second word of the Reverse Motto, In God We Trust. Additionally, the letter D in DOLLAR is broken. Additionally, the letter D in DOLLAR is broken. Some later minted specimens show a die chip at top of Right Laurel Wreath Cluster #1.
Reverse Markers: None
NOTE: Apart from the features created by the clash event and the die crack between the second and third star, the VAM-84A has the same attributions as the VAM-84.
COMMENTS ON THIS COIN:
A) This VAM is one of a few Morgan Silver Dollars that has the "missing nostril" feature. That feature was the result of over-polishing.
B) Doubling is seen on the Left Stars, E PLUR and LIBERTY.
C) Some undefined matter can be seen between the 7th Left Star and the Rim. This matter is also seen above the UR of E PLURIBUS. Some refer to this undefined matter as "die poop"; however, I refuse to identify any numismatic-related feature in that manner. It is, in my view, unprofessional.
D) The Obverse and Reverse of this coin shows signs of significant over-polishing, especially the Reverse.
The Obverse Clash Line exiting Lady Liberty's Neck Line just below the joint of her Jaw and Neck was created by the clashing of the Eagle's Right Wing. The Reverse Clash Line exiting at the top of the Eagle's Right Wing ending at the "n" in "In" was created by the clashing of Liberty's Neck Line.
