Mint mark centered and unpright, punched over CC. The CC mint Mark is centered and shifted right under the O and shows as a thin broken curve on the left and two faint projections on the right.
The O/CC dollars were created when discarded dies from the then-defunct Carson City mint were reworked, and used in New Orleans for the 1900-O dollars. The remains of the CC's were not well eliminated and they can be seen below the O mint mark. Ten different VAMs are known with O/CC reverses: VAM-7, 7A, 8, 8A, 8B, 9, 10, 10A, 11 and 12. VAM-9 was considered the most desirable variety at the time the Top 100 book was printed and is a legitimately tough coin to find, especially in mint state. Since that time VAMs 7 and 7A have turned out to rival it in rarity.
