Morgan's Designs with a Dash

The 1885 VAM-22 die variety has characteristics that can be seen on both the obverse and reverse. The obverse shows a detailed portrait of Liberty by George T. Morgan. The date is below Liberty, look closely below the the second "8" to find the dash.

A bald eagle can be seen on the reverse. The words "IN GOD WE TRUST" are inscribed between the tips of its wings. The eagle is holding arrows and an olive branch with its talons. Look closely at the feathers on the arrows to find the doubling that is part of the VAM-22 variety.
