Morgan 1921-D VAM-1CF === EDS of VAM-1AA1

Morgan 1921-D VAM-1AA1 has a distinctive die gouge through the E of ONE

It also has readily identifiable scribbles, with a set of semi-parallel curving scribbles (most arising from the left of the fifth UTF to above the fourth UTF) intersecting with a set of mostly vertical scribbles above the fifth UTF.

Although not mentioned on the VAM-1AA1 page, there is also a distinct set of faint scribbles outside the right leg feathers, most notably a forked scribble.

Guess what? VAM-1CF has exactly those scribbles, including the forked scribble.

Here are the scribbles from an example that does not show the E gouge:

This example does show very faint scratches above the D and O of DOLLAR, as mentioned on the VAM-1CF page.

So it would appear that VAM-1CF is an EDS of VAM-1AA1.
