    Start with a close-up of the engraved feathers between the eagle's right (viewer's left) wing and leg.

    There are 114 for this date/mm lol. Some of these are very difficult, even with the coin in hand.

    Short nock, so that eliminates a ton of them.

    Short nock eliminates 9 die pairs. The r in 'trust' is not broken. This eliminates a lot.

    It could have been but this scratch will probably bag it.

    You need a copy of "The Top 100 Morgan Dollar Varieties: The Vam Keys by Michael S. Fry, Ph. D and Jeff Oxman [ISBN 0-9653645-4-2] This should help you on any others later. Do not know if a newer updated book.

    I think you may have the obverse die correct but the engraved feathers and mint mark location are not a match for the reverse die. Try VAM-42 instead.
