Here's an exciting find for Morgan dollar collectors – the prized 1921 Morgan VAM-41. This easy-to-spot variety displays pitting on the reverse around the eagle's tail feathers and the center of the wreath – caused by rust on an aging die. What's more, these lustrous Uncirculated coins are from the final year of issue for the beloved 90% silver Morgan dollar.
A variety (or VAM) is a coin with recognizably different features than others of the same date and mint. There are quite a few out there – Hot Lips, Scarface and Donkey Tail – and every one identified by a catalog or VAM number. VAMs take their name from avid researchers and silver dollar enthusiasts Leroy Van Allen and A. George Mallis. Plus, the 1921 Pitted Die Reverse, VAM-41 offered here is listed in the book Top 100 Morgan Dollar Varieties – the VAM Keys.
Thanks to an opportunity purchase, I'm pleased to be able to offer you this popular Morgan variety from the Philadelphia Mint in very desirable grades.
