1882-CC Morgan Dollar VAM-2C MS64DMPL, Nice Hit List 40 Color Coin. Although this lovely near-Gem is not attributed on the holder, it is a textbook example of the Hit List 40 VAM-2 die varieties, in this case VAM-2C. Before we get to that, let us just mention the flashy deep mirrors throughout both sides with beautiful touches of color at the rims.
VAM-2C: We’ve taken some closeups of some of the key pickup points: doubled lips on Liberty; a die break at the rear of the lower cap behind the head; a small dot on the left side of the second 8’s upper loop and doubling on 82 (you can’t see this without a loupe in hand). The reverse shows clashing on both the left and right upper wreath ends, with the right one double clashed and the two clashes offset by a few degrees; and finally, just the first C in the mintmark still shows interior marks while the second is clear. Just a gorgeous Morgan dollar that ticks a lot of boxes all at the same time. We should note that this and the 1881-CC MS64 VAM-2 we also are offering have consecutive certification numbers from PCGS and would make a great matched set!
