Start here:

http://www.vamworld.com/

Note the link on the left entitled "Morgan VAM's by date." That will take you to a breakdown of just about everything recorded for each individual VAM. It doesn't necessarily mean you'll be able to completely attribute your coins with just that information, but it will give you an idea of what to look for with each date, and allow you to ask more specific questions here.

The way I do it is to grab a good 10x loupe and very slowly and methodically study your coin. Then note if there are any odd or slightly different attributes. Then dig through the 1879-S section on VAM world looking at each and every VAM. I find it very interesting.
