Hey everyone, I just picked up this coin today and want to ask you experts if you can see any VAM attributions on it. There's a couple spots on the coin that make me think there could be a possible VAM. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Small o mint mark, set slightly high and tilted to the right. Possibilities include V39, V53 and V74. http://www.vamworld.com/1880-O+Reverses

And, they're all VAMs.

Date is in the normal position, but possibly slanted with the last 8 higher than the 1.
Check for doubling under the upper crossbar. If it's there, you may have the VAM-39. If not, it's something else.

We have a winner. It is VAM 74. There is the lines in LI of liberty and the spike on the second arrow shaft. I'll try to get some pics uploaded of them. Thanks everyone for the help. It's very much appreciated.

VAM74 it is. Great close ups of the diagnostics!
