Owner Comments:

1878 VAM-44 DDO and DDR “King of VAMs” The VAM-44 obverse has one of the most clearly defined Tripled Dies in the Morgan Dollar series. The leaves and cotton bolls are dramatically tripled. The reverse has a 7/8 tailfeather reverse, the long nock on the arrow shaft can be seen along with “weak” tailfeather tips showing, 3 to 5 depending on the strike and how hard you look. There is more dramatic doubling of both of the eagle’s legs. This variety is tremendously sought after by collectors and XF to low-end AU specimines can command several thousand dollars. The reverse of this coin is shared with VAM-33 (a very common coin) so whenever you see the doubled eagle’s legs on the reverse be sure to check the obverse leaves and cotton bolls for doubling that marks the VAM-44!
