I'm trying to identify the VAM of my 1878 S Morgan dollar. It has a broken 4th right star, the S is doubled and touches itself, the "A" in America touches the right wing of the eagle. I have looked for few hrs at different varieties and I cant find one that really matches. Please help

You've already pointed yourself in the right direction by identifying the broken fourth right star and unbroken r. The next step will narrow the choices roughly in half by determining if LIBERTY is doubled or not. In the attached link attribution guide #4 is doubled LIBERTY and guide #3 is not. I can't make out the S/S mint mark in your image but there are several listed.
