1880-S VAM-11 021222

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.

NOTE: This is an 1880/79-S overdate.

OBVERSE ATTRIBUTES: The remains of the 9 is seen as metal with Die polishing lines at the top of the cavity of Date digit 0 and a bulge is present at 10 o'clook in the Field outside the digit. Date digit 1 is doubled at the right side of the shaft and under the flag. The second Date digit 8 is doubled at the outside of the upper loop and a few metal dots are present at the right outside of the lower loop. Markers: None.

REVERSE ATTRIBUTES: The Mint Mark is set high in the upright position and is repunched. A vertical spike extends downward from the middle top loop cavity and a curved line is seen in the middle inside of the lower loop cavity. Markers: None.

COMMENTS ON THIS COIN:
  • This specimen has all of the attributes associated with the VAM-11 and has been certified as a VAM-11 by the ANACS.
  • This is a slanted Date Variety. The last two digits are higher from the Rim than the first two digits. As a result of my February 28, 2022 communications to the VAMWorld community, VAMWorld's VAM-11 Page was amended to officially note the slanted nature of this Variety's Date.
  • A thread-like impression can be see on Lady Liberty's neck. This feature can be viewed in the Section entiled Features of Special Interest.

SPECIAL NOTE: A feature that has been described as a "Snail" due to its shape, appears on a leaf of Right Wreath Cluster #4. This feature is of the Hub and is seen on Morgan Silver Dollars that were minted from at least 1880 through 1904. A photograph of this interesting looking feature can be viewed in the Section entitled Features of Special Interest.
