1921-P VAMs 3GA and 107 are the same

I've changed the title to this thread to make it a statement rather than asking a question. Here's why:


This is the one and only LVA plate image (I wish it was bigger) that is on the VAM 3GA attribution page, showing the diagonal gouge through the D in UNITED:

Here is a photo I took of my EDS VAM 3GA. Notice that both photos show a crack from the E to the D:

And here is LVA's plate image (I also wish it was bigger) of VAM 107's scribbles from the attribution page:

And here is a photo I took of the scribbles on my EDS VAM 3GA coin. Notice that there are many more horizontal lines on the eagle's abdomen and leg than LVA indicates on his plate image:
