This is one I'm stumped trying to validate.
It appears it has some of the markers needed
to classify as a VAM. I'm leaning towards V6 or V46
mainly because of the Trust possibly being Tiust.
There's something going on with the date as well with the
(7and9) The 7 looks as though it has fangs below the serifs and the 9 possibly open.

I'm definitely not an expert in Vams but hopefully some of you experts can chime in and give some prudence to it at least being a VAM or can nail it down to a particular VAM.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated....Thanks!

I'm seeing too much of the upper serif of the r to be 6 or 46. This segment can be tough to attribute and I'm certainly not an expert....
Possibly V35?

All Morgans are VAMs. A VAM is a specific die pairing.
Also what Dave said. the 79-S R78 is tough to ID.

Ok guys. I'm new to Morgans and I have a question .What does identifying the VAM do ? Are certain ones more valuable than others ?
Where can I find this data base ?

Run...sell all you have right now! lol
Unless you have time to go to VAM cult college...and you have only interest in Morgans...they are very time consuming.
To me...they are a very busy coin...too many things going on...I try to attribute them and lose interest and end up putting them in a 2x2 flip saying I'll look later.
My kids will probably sell them for melt when I'm dead because I don't see myself getting to them any time soon...lol
