    As a Morgan collector mainly, I'd probably go with the notorious 1888-O VAM 1B “Scarface” Morgan Dollar. The badass looking lady liberty results from a severely cracked die (the later stages of striking = more prominent effect).

    Note: PCGS MS62 example from their site, not from my collection (I wish!).

    Curious to hear others' favorites!
