I've looked but not found this VAM: A 78-S w/gouges across several feathers. Anyone know if it's already a VAM? or is this something new?

Looks like either VAM 1D or VAM 73, both have that reverse.

That hot spot in front of the eye in obverse photo hides the area needed to discern between the two VAMs.

Any value to either of those vams? The coin's been "wiped" and was a PL; what value do those two vams have for an AU details coin? any ideas?

Both VAMs are listed as top-30 1878-S varieties based on the common reverse die. That fact could raise some interest in an AU details example but being both are known in grades up to MS64/ MS65 I doubt there would be much premium if any. This is just my guesstimate of course. If you would like a better idea I would suggest you join New VAMworld 2.0 and ask the value question in the buy/sell/trade section.
