Re: I think this is a new D2 1921-P

I added a note about the lines from the upper lip to the main 21-P page. It should make it easier to find in the future.
Can we get your great shot of the upper lip added to the scribbles page?

Re: Is there any vams that are with the 1921 d JOH-22 small break above m Morgan?

A pattern of minor cracks as illustrated by JOH-22 with no field displacement, noticeable die chips or scribble scratches would be a VAM 1. Most of the JOH listings have since had other stages noted that resulted in a VAM being assigned to it. As far as I know, this hasn't been found with anything '...

Psychic Bank of Ohio. But really, the bank was founded in 1907 and I think the building this came from was built back in the mid 1920's. The bank is long gone but the building is still there. Think the upper floors have been converted to condos.
