1901-O VAM-1A 013120

Characteristics are described with a degree of granularity intended for die identification more so than for die classification. A characteristic may not span the entire die progression. Thus, not all characteristics may be present in any one coin.

The VAM-1A is a Super CD Variety.

OBVERSE ATTRIBUTES: A Die gouge can be seen in the interior of the Ear. This is a double clashed Obverse with a faint incused n of the first word of the Reverse Motto, In God We Trust, found just off Liberty's Neck Line. This coin is an early mintage Morgan as a double incused t in the last word of the Reverse Motto, Trust, is quite easily seen in the Hair Vee at the edge of Liberty's lower hair. Marker: None.

REVERSE ATTRIBUTES: None. Marker: None.

  • The Date is set in the Normal position with the digit 9 closed.
  • A clash event has left a clash mark behing the lower third part of the Phrygian Cap (Cap Vee region).
  • The bottom of the Ear Lobe is doubled. This is not noted as an attributable feature.
