    Been studying different Morgan’s and recently noticed these marks by the hair that I think are die polish lines. Here are a couple 1893cc Morgan’s that display this. What are your thoughts? Are these typical for this year and mint?

    Interesting. They do look like die polishing lines to me, I would assume they were to remove clashes in that area. Apparently this is indicative of VAM-5, although I do not know if it shows up on other VAMs.

    It could be big zi'm distracted by the nice die crack through the stars. It could be a die clash. Welcome to CT.

    Welcome to Coin Talk. There's so many varieties of Morgan Dollars. You can check yours out on VAMWorld.

    Either die polish or some other die scratches. Either way, they aren’t damage

    Some Morgan's have a die clash in that hair vee. It is the ST of trust from the reverse and sometimes just the T. Could be they tried to polish it out
