I am curious if they got delisted somehow, merged into another VAM (im thinking 211-214 could have been merged into singular vam-210 with A and B subsets)? Or do these vams simply do not exist, but I don't see any delisting of these particular ones.

They're right there with VAM-204-209 and 216-219.
I'm guessing Leroy intentionally left gaps but that's just a guess..

Hmm, that is odd, so one could have a C2 reverse merged into some C1's and C3's reverses Interesting. I posted my C2 1878 on vamworld asking if it was an eds of one of the VAM 210's, but mine didn't have any of the pup's at the word Liberty. Not unless I hit some kind of transitional VAM in the 204-209 series... I knew it was not the VAM 215 though. I'm keeping on looking though.

I apologize. My attempt at humor may have lead you astray. The 204-209, 211-214 and 216-219 VAMs are non existent. I'm thinking Leroy intentionally left gaps in case of discoveries in the respective reverse die classifications.

one must remember, from the begining, Vams, were the study of the most interesting Morgan dollar.... and the history of the PROBLEMS Of making dies to produce the quantities of money NEEDED to the west USA America was still using, spanish pieces of eight to supply the commerce with a valid currency....Even then.........the us treasury needed to solidify US CURRENCY....FOR the US.....its amazing how many errors were made in producing the dies as we all know,
The problem of modern VAMMING IS.......its turned into DIEPOOP.......
as in the study of the progression of the PERSAY, a particular year in question......LATTER years, have so minimal errors that the door was opened to promote the vaming experience that even the smallest poop has become a die variation........IT PROMOTES the vaming Idea, but there's no monitary value in any of this, which is defeating in the principle if the vaming experience.,......I am glad to see this site is still trucking on.... theres a lot of cool stuff going on in the Morgan dollars Aladin.....
