1887/6 Top 100 VAM On Offer in January 24, 2024 Collectors Choice Online Auction

A major VAM variety Morgan dollar, the 1887 VAM-2, is on offer in the January 24, 2024, Collectors Choice Online auction. This variety, a major overdate, is one of the Top 100 VAMs. 

Six 1887 Morgan dollar VAM varieties appear in the Top 100 and the VAM-2, often referred to as the 1887/6, is one of the better-known and is very popular. This popularity can be attributed, at least in part, to its distinction as being one of the VAMs listed in the Red Book., an online catalog of VAM varieties, says that it was identified in 1971. That site’s description of the VAM-2 states: “7 repunched over 6 in date. The bottom loop of the 6 shows as a long curved line starting up slightly from the lower right bottom of the 7 and extending upwards one-third the digit height. On the left side of the stem, a short spike slants upwards at a point one-third the way up on the stem height. A short vertical spike shows at the very top of the 7 crossbar in the middle. A short spike also slants upwards from the middle right side of the crossbar.”

The example in our auction is certified MS-64 by NGC. It’s an attractive example of the grade, with even coloration and no distracting marks. View this lot and the entire January 24 Collectors Choice Online Auction of U.S. Coins at
