1900 Can't find VAM; Extra wing feathers

Post by emargo » Fri Mar 05, 2021 12:24 am

This 1900 Morgan reverse has 3 fine wing feathers next to the leg feathers on the eagle's right side rather than the one thick feather. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Nice coin - not to give it away, but this reverse found on 2 VAMs - # of it depends on the date position.

Of the two with that reverse, the VAM-11 is far more difficult to locate than the VAM-24. The obverse is critical. VAM-11 in mint state is a VERY tough coin. We have 27 UNCs listed in the Registry, but some of those might be misattributed VAM-24 (we have 52 UNCs of those registered).
