Hello community,
Picked up this Morgan by auction and noticed what looks like a die crack almost around the whole reverse through most of the words. Starts from (O) in one to the (I) in America. What else could this be?
The other hot spot is in-front of the lips is this some kind of Clash?

Thanks to the members for looking







Rest in Peace

Really long die crack. Almost looks like a clash near Liberty's lips. Either that, or she's hacking a boogy.

Nice pick! It appears to be a VAM-3A.

Opinions on weather the clashes and massive die crack help or hurt the value of the sweet Morgan?

It certainly doesn't hurt the value but it's not a variety that adds value either.

There are, in fact, few years of Morgan issue where one cannot find at least one die pair showing a near-complete circumferential die crack. It's quite common. I'm thinking you could build a specialized date/MM collection of them. Same goes for clashing.

Keep in mind, Morgans were produced in huge numbers, and events like these are inevitable in such volume production. During the years of Morgan mintage, only Cents consistently exceeded Morgan production. All other US coin denominations rarely came close to, much less exceeded, Morgan production.

Thanks for the info SsuperDdave, I am in the early stages of collecting Morgans. I agree there is almost a flaw in every coin, Finding the coin with none seems to be the needle in the hay stack.
