If you enjoy the "thrill of the hunt," then variety collecting is for you! Since the early 1950s, enthusiasts have not only collected by date and mint mark, but also accented their silver dollar sets with Morgan and Peace dollar varieties. A variety is a coin with recognizably different features than other coins of the same date and mint issue, and are known as VAMs. Each one has a catalog number.
VAMs take their name from researchers and silver dollar enthusiasts, Leroy Van Allen and A. George Mallis. In 1971, they first published their research, listing each variety by date and mint mark in the book Comprehensive Catalog and Encyclopedia of Morgan and Peace Dollars. The latest edition of this “bible” for variety collectors is available here, order today!
