    Pulled this from a cull group (it's got some graffiti/ wear). But there's something going on in the mintmark that caught my eye.

    On review, it doesn't seem to match any of the listed O/CC types (& the C, if that's what it is, is rotated 90 degrees CCW). Are there O/O varieties that I'm not familiar with?

    There's also something going on with the I in "UNITED". Couldn't quite tell if there's a field crack over the woods, as is a marker for some of the O/CC types.

    With the exception of the scratches, it is a nice Morgan. The MM looks worn as the rest of the coin to me @GeorgeM. It's a keeper, thanks for the look see.

    Not an O/CC. A normal circulation Morgan.

    It’s a nice New Orleans Morgan Dollar but it’s not the overdate. Parts of the CC will stand out under the O.

    Nice, too bad about those intentional looking facial scratches. There is a website somewhere that shows the CC sticking out underneath. Maybe someone will come along and advise you where to go to see and example.

    I have seen the other O/CC varieties, and this clearly isn't one of the several VAMs that usually bear the label. But, I can't figure out what's going on with the mintmark on this one. Something is inside the O and again above and to the left (unless it's just PMD, of which this coin admittedly has a fair share).

    It could be a die chip under that O but there is no CC under the O.
