'''Reverse C3a–''' Strongly clashed die with full raised E below eagle’s tail feathers on left side and partial raised B at left of E, tip of R to right of E and raised bar of T in middle of tail feathers from obverse LIBERTY. Centered circular medium III O mint mark.<br />
'''Comments:'''<br />
'''1-.''' Four die states of this die pair have been catalogued.<br />
The order in progression is:<br />
* 1st VAM-1a1 Clash<br />
* 4th VAM-1a3 Terminal break on Bump with non displaced radial break from UNITED<br />
* [[VAM-1A1 Through 1A4|VAM-1A1 Through 1A4]]<br />
'''2-.''' The final die state [[1891-O VAM-1A3|1891-O VAM-1A3]] has a large raised verticle bar break on left side of profile line extending up to wreath leaf.<br />'''3-.''' This VAM has a the strongest E clashed on the reverse of any Morgan dollar. In fact, the E on the reverse looks like it was actually part of the design it was so strong.<br />'''4-.''' This is a really cool variety well worth a substantial premium to own in AU. Mint state examples are exceptionally rare.<br />
