Discovered by Walter Breen, October 1964.
This coin is a Top 100 Morgan VAM.
6 III2 5 ∙ C3d (8/7 Low) (177) I-5 R-4
Obverse II2 5 – 8 re-punched over 7 in date with the original 7 pinched low. The ears are faint above the 8 and the crossbar and stem of the 7 show strongly. The bottom of the 7's stem shows well below the 8. A small piece of metal with polishing marks shows at the bottom inside of the 0. First, 8 has diagonal polishing marks inside partially filled loops.
Reverse C3d – Normal die of C3 type with centered small I CC mintmark and slanted arrow feathers. CC has a dot of metal in the center of each C. Die scratch through M of AMERICA, the bottom of eagle's right-wing and inside of eagle's left-wing.
Comments:
1. The VAM-6 8/7 set low overdate feature has a strong 7 showing beneath the 8. The 7 is set lower than the similar VAM-5 overdate. The reverse of both of these VAMs has an 1879 reverse with the slanted arrow feathers that angle down toward the shaft rather than running parallel to it.
2. This Reverse die was used on VAM-6 and VAM-8.
