1880/9 S Morgan Silver Dollar - 0 Over 9 Overdate
One major variety is the 1880/9 S Morgan Silver Dollar with an 0/9 overdate from the San Francisco Mint (sometimes known as VAM-8 or VAM-11). This coin features an 1880 date struck over the previous year of 1879 date - which resulted in an 0 over 9 date. This variety is fairly easy to identify because the underlying "9" results in a moderately sized scratchy and rough patch inside the "0" at the upper-right and even small piece at the bottom-left side. Although no part of the underlying "7" is seen in the upper-portion of the "8" - which helps distinguish this variety from the 1880/79 variety. The difference between the 1880 S normal date vs 1880/79 vs 1880/9 Morgan dollar varieties is depicted below in the example comparison image:
