PCGS said "no"

Darn them. :cry:
I still think this is a 1921-D VAM 9A "_rust"... and there goes $18 down the toilet:

But you are a collector, not a dealer, so money is not an object. Right?

Send me the obv die cracks around date up left side.
Way back the vam pages showed the die cracks for 9a and 1ai.
they were different, but someone took them off pictures.
I think it was done on purpose.
I truly think there are some 9a that are 1ai vams.
I have sent 2 coins to Leroy way back around 2009-2010 to attribute which he did.
You can go to 9a vam and read this letter Leroy did at that time with my coins.
Some vam guy's think my ms 65 not meet the filled --T--.
I found a ms 65 at that time.
Set it JB and he called it 9a
sent it to Leroy and he call it 9a
Sent it to pcgs with JB sticker on it and Mike would not vam it.
Sent it back with Leroy letter and he took 4 mounts to call it 9a. He even took it to shows and had Ash for one look at it as I remember, do not know who else.
All that time you could look at die cracks by date and clearly see it matched the 9a. Letter Leroy wrote talks about Joyce book?
Somewhere their should be able to get the die cracks of 9a and 1ai.

The Super Johns... J.R. and J.B... looked at my scribbles photos and solved the mystery of this coin -- it's a VAM 1U.
Yay for the Super Johns!
But back to hunting for a 9A. Sigh ..
When in doubt... don't.

You haven't lived until you've witnessed first hand JB attributing a 21p in a dimly lit restaurant foyer, under the lights of an upside down Christmas tree, in less than 20 seconds using a borrowed loupe..

Dennis, can you show us the rest of the reverse? I'm not familiar with the 9A, but I do have a 1U. Just trying to understand the connection between them. Did John say what may have happened to the "T"?

And here are 2 shots of the scribbles, taken from different light source angles, that J.R. used to nail the 1U attribution:

He didn't say anything specifically about the filled T, but I know from posts and eBay ads that quite a variety of various filled letters occurred during 1921.
When in doubt... don't.
