    So I know I am a noob in these parts, so forgive me is one exists... but I cant find a thread for GSA Morgans. Let’s see some!

    Here is my one and only: 1884 CC Stunning reverse with an awesome clash. VAM3a if you are into that.

    now compare the mint mark (cc) on your coin in the original post to the coin in your second post on the vam site. You will see a wide spread on (cc) in the original post as compared the the almost closed mint mark(cc) on the picture from the vam site. I am by no means an expert , but i would not by that coin raw based on that mint mark. I will defer to the more experienced & educated. If you can get a closeup of the mint mark on your coin and a full shot of the slab obverse and reverse it could help determine for others to follow.

    You are looking at an image taken with a single light source at a (somewhat) low angle. The result is a shadow on the left side of the mint mark against an under-lit area of the field. The coin is legit and in fact a VAM-3A as posted by the OP.

    Nice coins guys. These have always interested me, but the only one I ever owned I bought at a small show and then traded it before the day was over.

    One of my first purchases was a set of "CC" Morgans.. It was labeled "The Wild West Collection" with a 1882 CC, 1883 CC, and 1884 CC. All three coins were graded MS 65 by NGC. For an untrained eye as well as a Newby, I thought they were beautiful, so I locked them up in my Credit Unions "security bank box" along with a 1880 S NGC graded MS64 and my 1881 S, graded MS 63. In my infancy of buying Morgan Silver dollars, I bought 10 raw Uncirculated 1921 and 1 1921D and 1 1921S. I have several raw Morgans that I got from my father's will. Coins I get, either inherited or purchased by me go into a long dark black hole, either in my safe or my credit union's "Safety Deposit Box". I wonder if my coins are so important that I put them away and don't see them.
