Comments:
1- This marriage comes in two distinct stages, with and without the clash. In Elite Clashed Morgan Dollars, Mark Kimpton states "Approximately one out of every three VAM 6A's I have seen has had clashing." He also points out that the unclashed version of the VAM 6A(what is now VAM-6 Die #1) is the beginning of a die progression VAM-6 Die #1 no clash, 6A clash, 49, 6, 6C two obverse clashes, and 6C with three obverse clashes.
