Both of my VAM 58s have light beveling in the denticles above S _O like your does, but neither have a finger feed gouge in ST.

Die clash events are very difficult to interpret without all the pieces (as you know). Persistence is KEY. It took me twenty years to find that second monster error/variety Bicen...
