1. 1893 VAM-4 Doubled Stars. For this VAM, the stars on both sides of the date are doubled. A small shelf can be seen on the rim side of the stars. This coin is a better date, harder to find Morgan without the variety. With the doubling it is a special coin in AU and above.

All of the stars are doubled but here are the first two left stars.......
