There are 12 vams on this overdate. Which is the toughest to see? I picked up one a few years ago from a dealer in there common Morgan dollar box, was a nice VF at least. I guess he didn't realize some are hard to see....

    I have one in my CC series collection... Have never checked to identify the VAM... Maybe someday... Cheers, RickO

    I think Vam 10 which is the one I have. When the dealer at a show sold to me, he said it might not be an 0/CC, he wasn't sure either, the 2nd C was so faint. But for $30, it was worth the gamble. With a good loupe, turns out it was a VF O/CC.

    So that no one gets confused or the wrong idea, the 1900-O/CC is an over-mintmark, not an over-date.

    Thanks for the feedback! There are a couple that are hard to see. Looking at both the examples on Coinfacts and the Vamworld I could not see the one I was looking for which was tough to see with some metal inside the "O" but not seeing it with these examples.
