Discovery 2013
This coin is a Top 100 Morgan VAM.
1A2 III2 1 · C3c (Clashed Obverse, Reverse BER, High O, Displaced Field Break R) (181) I-4 R-5
Obverse III2 1– Die crack from rim (Thru R) in PLURIBUS with displaced field break at R.
Reverse C3c– Medium III O mint mark set high. Clashed die with almost full raised E from LIBERTY on obverse below eagles tail feathers on left side and partial raised B at left of E and tip of R to right of E.

1. This is the longest die state of the 3. If your coin looks like the photo below its an EDS Vam-1a2. This stage runs from this point all the way past the stage where the reverse die is grease filled in TRUST. The grease filled die state is a later stage of the Vam-1a2. This by far is the most common of the 3 stages. Should any of the "TRUST" have a grease strike though it is a late die state VAM-1a2. The large die chip off the cap band is the key pick up point of the VAM-1a3. (Note: no grease filled die state has been seen that has the full chip and the grease filled letters to date 12/MAR/2014)
