Comments:
1- This VAM has a LOT going on...7/8 TF, clashed lettering, polished dies, "bearded" Lady Liberty... Examine a VAM-41-C and you see what VAM collecting is all about. This variety is last stage of the die state progression: 1878-P VAM-41, 1878-P VAM-41B, 1878-P VAM-41A, 1878-P VAM-41C. The suffixes are not in die progression order because of the times of discovery were not in order.

Additional photos:
The strong obverse clash defines the 41C. This was the former late die stage of VAM 41A until 2004.
Here is the beard and the outstanding "In" clash:
