Beveled Field Capped R

Will a "beveled field" still be a listable die feature or just used as a die marker?

I have a VLDS 1921 D VAM 1B1 with displaced field breaks : above and below tip of bust
top of E and above rim to rim Obverse
above BU

below LA
above ED Reverse
strong full Capped R Break

Heavily polished right wing, feed finger gouges/polish thru AT, God, down to eagle's right shoulder - wing.
Beveled field above OF.
Does anyone have (or seen) the VAM 1B1 Capped R with these features?

Short answer is that it's not listable on its own. The longer answer lies in the rules for listing die stages.

The cracks you mention are already well-documented for VAM 1B.

THANKS Mark ! Looks similar to mine. I believe I see the beveled field towards denticles above OF on your PCGS specimen VAM 1B1 also. Does your piece show die break across top of E (obverse) following die crack as elevated above adjacent normal letter E height?
