Is this a 1921-P VAM 3AB ?

LVA gives us very little to go by; just one photo of the finger feed gouges at F & A on the reverse and:
Obverse IV 1 - Faintly double right stars.
Reverse D2a - Three broad, shallow vertical die gouges from top of eagle's left wing up thru F in OF to denticles.

My coin has faintly doubled right stars, and the finger feed gouges look like a match to his plate photo. Does anyone else agree? (Bearing in mind, of course, that finger feed gouge areas likely 'drifted' as more and more coins were struck.)

There appears to be a small gouge between the denticles at wing tip on plate photo but also appears like yours is earlier than the plate photo so it it may have happened after yours was struck if it is not on your coin.
