Key Variations to Look For
As a collector, you may be interested in obtaining some of the most popular Morgan Silver Dollar errors and varieties. Here are a few notable examples:
- VAM Varieties: VAM (Van Allen-Mallis) varieties are Morgan Silver Dollar die varieties identified by Leroy Van Allen and A. George Mallis. Some of the most sought-after VAM varieties include the 1878-P 7/8 Tail Feathers, the 1879-P Reverse of 1878, and the 1887-P Doubled Ear.
- Clashed Dies: Clashed die errors occur when the obverse and reverse dies strike each other without a planchet in between, leaving impressions from one die on the other. A popular example is the 1889-P Morgan Silver Dollar with a clashed "E" visible on the reverse.
- Off-Center Strikes: Off-center strikes occur when a planchet is not properly aligned between the dies during the striking process, resulting in an off-center design. These errors can range from slightly off-center to dramatically misaligned, and they add unique character to your collection.
- Double Strikes: Double strikes occur when a coin is struck twice by the dies, creating a doubled or overlapping design. These errors are highly sought after for their distinctive appearance and rarity.
- Die Breaks and Cuds: Die breaks and cuds are mint errors resulting from cracks or breaks in the die. These errors can create raised lines or blobs on the struck coins, adding a unique touch to your collection.
