I have this 1900-O Morgan graded MS64+ by NGC and it has die cracks through the date, through "LURI" and pretty much all the way through "UNITED STATES OF AM", as well as some polishing marks between the right wing and neck.

Try VAM 55. For years, this coin was pictured as a VAM 2 on VAMWORLD. But then MItch Hill sent one in and got this designation. The diecracks vary from coin to coin, but the high date crack is always the give away.

Looks familiar. Might be one of the VAM-21 die pairs, but not one of the lsited subvarieties (21A, 21C, ...).

Yeah looks like 55 to me too - the iconic Date top crack - the right wing tip crack.
Your coin has extra character ( cracks )
Check for the MM and DATE position

I do think that 55 is the best match. The date position and die cracks match best and it is a high O tilted right.
