Early Die State of 78-S VAM 42B

Here is what looks to be an Early Die State (EDS) of the 78-S VAM 42B; it does not have the die scratches, but it does have the denticle clashes and gouges.

Also pictured are the gouges at the reverse right star

Nice Lew!; I will need to dig my specimen out of the box an take a look; this post got me to look at my inventory, and when I got a 42B, it wasn't;'t a slot in the registry so, I coded it as 42A. I've fixed that. I think mine had all the markers of the plate coin. Neat variety. Thanks for the post!

can't see the scratches on mine, either; all the other markers are there...
