1878 8TF, TOP 100 VAM 9 First Die Pair / Marriage PCGS AU-50
1878 P 8 TF Morgan Silver Dollar PCGS AU-50 - TOP 100 VAM-9 First Die Pair / Marriage - From VAMWORLD: "The 1878 VAM-9 Morgan Silver Dollar is the very first set of dies used to strike Morgan dollars! The 1878 VAM-9 is an 8 Tailfeather Morgan w/ the A1h reverse. Detective work has revealed they began striking the new Morgan coins at 3:17 PM on March 11, 1878. The combination of the die & the time is known because a reporter was present at the event and the first coins struck were presentation pieces for President Rutherford B. Hayes. Rutherford Birchard Hayes was the 19th President of the United States. His specific coin has been preserved & studied for die features & subsequently identified as a 1878-P VAM-9. The reverse die is identifiable because of the "comma" feather on the lower right side as looking at the eagle. Some VAMmers describe this feather as kidney-bean shaped & it is a key identifier of a VAM-9."
