    1879-CC Dollar, MS60
    Capped Die, VAM-3, Top 100 Variety
    Old Rattler Holder, CAC

    1879-CC $1 Capped Die, VAM-3, MS60 PCGS. CAC. A Top 100 Variety. The crude attempt to efface a Small CC mintmark beneath its primary Large CC mintmark makes the VAM-3 one of the most memorable varieties of the entire Morgan dollar series. This lightly abraded example is is sharply struck and housed in an early generation PCGS "rattler" holder, with fewer marks than expected on the lustrous, frosted surfaces. CAC endorsement adds to the appeal.
