    I'm having a tough night. In fact, this past month has kicked my butt and my severe anxiety condition is acting up. I rarely start threads, rather browse and learn from others, but I need a distraction.

    1904 O Morgan dollar- which was my first slabbed coin I purchased in 2014 or so (+/-). Like I noted, she is in a PCGS holder, straight grade. No prizes but the satisfaction that you got it right ;)

    Apologies for graininess radiating from the center of the coin- my little microscope isn't perfect but it works better than my phone.

    Looks quite nice. 64+, not an option, guess I'll fall back to 64.

    A nice coin for sure, and the lack of contact marks leads me to believe it would merit an MS-64 designation.

    I see some nice die break/cracks on the reverse along the words/stars does it have a special vam?

    I see the cut on the jaw, I got good eyesight. But I still think this lustrous old gal went gem. MS65.

    No! I noticed that 2 days ago when I brought her from home to campus. Now that you mention it I am noticing even more. Does anyone have more info on this?

    By the way, she is MS-64 and thanks for playing ;)

    Taking a look at the VAM listings, I find a few with a similar die break but I think my die break is at an earlier stage than this listing. I am not especially interested in VAMs but I am rather intrigued to see what I have.

    Look at the reverse, what I see along the lettering on the right side in the example is much more prominent than my coin. Any advice my friends?

    I would have said 64. Too many contact marks for gem grade.
