Hi,

Hopefully someone here can tell me what VAM this is.
There's an interesting diecrack on the reverse going from "O" in one all the way around to "M" in America. But if I understand it correctly VAMs are not identified from diecracks.

The clashmark above eagles right wing and polishing lines between eagles head and left wing might help though?
There is also some diepolishing lines under Libertys ear, but hard to see from these photos.

Tell me if there's any area of the coin that I should take a closeup photo on.

My Guess' - VAM-4 Far Date, or VAM-3 S Tilted Right, Probably far date though.

Could it be VAM-9?

VAM-2 it is. Here's a VAM-2 that sold on Heritage in 2007 from the SSDC Census Report. https://coins.ha.com/itm/morgan-dol...024-12098.s#

Also - the Jack Lee MS67 example is a VAM-2..
