Comments:
1- If you have an E clashed 1883-O morgan dollar, the easiest way to determine if it's VAM-22A versus VAM-36A is that VAM-22A has no die chips inside the ear, while VAM-36A does. Extensive obverse field chatter and weakly struck edge lettering afflicts this variety. Most, if not all specimens have extensive planchet striations around the obverse rim. Because of these problems, MS 63 and higher are tough to come by. MS 64 and 65 have both been found.
