Comments:
1- 1887 VAM-2 7/6 overdate. This variety is one of the Morgan VAMs recognized and priced in the Red Book, crossing over into many mainstream collections. If you examine the last digit of the date, a 7, the remnants of a 6 can be seen to the lower right.
2- Horizontal scratch in front of the eye as a Pick Up Point from Vampicker. See additional photos below
