3 great cracks, but no scribbles

It's amazing that this 1921-P apparently hasn't found a VAM number yet, even with little or no scribbles.
D2 reverse. No doubling on obverse stars.

The cracks from the wing to God (one from the wing to Go, and the other from the tip of the d to ES) are impressive:

And there are interesting old gouges in front of Liberty's eye:

When in doubt... don't.

One more crack, but what is really interesting is the elegant downward-swooping polishing line (??) that connects D and O in DOLLAR. There are also several other old cracks in UNITED and DOLLAR.
