1900 Morgan Dollar Doubled
by Ken Potter - NLG
© Ken Potter 2005
Chuck Avery of Avery and Brook, Grand Rapids,
Michigan decided to check some of his new stock for varieties and found a 1900
Morgan silver dollar with a doubled die reverse that is now listed as a new VAM
variety. VAM is the acronym that
prefixes the listing numbers for die varieties listed in The Comprehensive
Catalog and Encyclopedia of Morgan & Peace Silver Dollars by Leroy Van Allen
and A. George Mallis. VAM
represents the initials of the authors’ last names.
This listing system is also used for new variety listings that are
candidates for inclusion in any future editions of the book.
Complete details of this story can be found in my Varieties Notebook column in the November 7, 2005 issue of Coin World.
