So I took a look at vam 1G and compared it to my coin and it didn't match up to the die marker's. I have no die chip on the upper lip. I also don't have any polishing lines in the Wing neck Gap area. I do have the diagonal line running down off the neck but no clashed obverse n and it also does not have the overs clashed st. So I also checked vam 1f being the only one I can also find with the die crack running from the left wing up to the N of in god we trust. I'm stumped maybe I'm missing something.

Notice many of the listing make mention of a doubled date. I would start there. There is a doubling guide at the top of the forum. Also, the attribution guides help by looking at a certain areas of the coin. These guides can help you narow down your VAM quickly.

It's the die break off the the R in AMERICA that always confirms the 11A/11B for me. Nice clashed variety!
