Lastly do you think my VAM-2 is correct

That’s a 2 die pair. I don’t know that I had noticed the gouge in denticles on reverse, I did not have it noted anywhere. The little streamer off the wheat kernel only show up on 4 die I have found. Nice pictures you really caught the gouges in the cotton bolls well.

Do any of the denticles impressions show up. Hard to see when the pl fades away.

I agree with Vam2. Mine has those reverse denticles also.

Not as many as in the pictured one on the VAM-2 page but definitely a few there
Surprisingly difficult to picture.
1 picture shows the one in between the "I" and the "n", the others are a few more below the "In God"
the ones at the rim are pretty well flattened - You can tell a few were there but not a lot currently show
