    Important VAM-14.8 Eight Tailfeather
    MS63 Prooflike 1878 Morgan Dollar

    1878 8TF $1 MS63 Prooflike NGC. VAM-14.8. Per VAMworld.com, "VAM-14.8 is one of the ultra rare 8TF coins. VAM-14.8 was struck as a proof and the dies were reused as a business strike. Because of rarity, the business strike typically sells for higher premiums than the proof." Most survivors are in circulated grades. Brilliant save for light rose toning near the rims. Crisply struck and flashy with a few moderate marks on the left obverse.(Registry values: P5, N491)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 253H, PCGS# 7073)
