1878-P VAM-224 Doubled Lower Reverse, 168 Reed Count

Discovered by Leroy Van Allen, December 1999.
This coin is a Hit List 40 Morgan Vam.
This coin is a Top 30 1878 Variety
224 (revised) II 2 C3c (Doubled Lower Reverse, 168 Reed Count) (168) I-4 R-5
Obverse II 2- Broken point of fourth right star.
Reverse C3c- Same hub doubling but different die.
Die marker - Double horizontal polishing lines between eagle's legs on right side.
Edge Second lowest edge reeding count of 168 for Morgan dollar series.

Comments:
1. Comparing the edge reeding to other 1878 Morgans is the simplest way to find this variety, but the attribution may be confirmed by die scratches on the obverse. One is a horizontal scratch across the top of the capband, the other is a fairly long diagonal scratch pointing down to the left in the lower hair from under the edge of the lower portion of Liberty's cap.
