Welcome to the Society of Silver Dollars Reference Site, www.ssdcvams.com .

This site is intended solely for the use of members of the SSDC and members of the coin grading and authentication community.  The SSDC is responsible for making certain the ability to properly authenticate Morgan and Peace Dollar varieties by VAM numbers.  At this time, we are providing the information necessary to identify the key VAMs that are encapsulated by the major grading services.  In time, the SSDC may expand this service to include all VAMs, but not until a time when that function is
relinquished by Leroy Van Allen.
