Discovery 2009, Revised December 2013
This coin is a WOW! Morgan VAM.
19 (revised) III2 11 - C3i (Doubled Ear, Far Date, Very High O/O Left, Extreme Buffed Reverse) (181) I-5 R-6
Obverse III2 11 - Strongly doubled ear at right inside. Date set further right than normal.
Reverse C3i - III O mint mark set very high next to ribbon with slight doubling at lower left outside and top right inside. Extreme buffing of reverse die with shadow outline around eagle, wreath and letters plus some raised areas and lines in fields from excessive buffing of die. Very little die wear roughness or lines at periphery. Die likely retired early in usage.
1. While only given an R-6 rating this VAM appears to be far more rare!
