Congrats Ron. Persistence and help from JB equals success! Good to read a post from you. I recently
resubmitted my DC 1900 O Vam 65A for review by LVA because of similarity to Vam 6. Leroy stated that
Vam 65A "Doesn't have O m/m tilted rt of Vam 6". So Vam 65A stands for now.

Another 03o so soon. When it rains it pours. Things tend to come in 3's though so I wonder what the next one will be and when, by Christmas maybe? :lol: 😎👍👍👍

According to my study, there are 21 more unlisted die pairs in the 03-O series. So 2 down (V22 & 23) and 21 more to go. By the way, try to find an unclashed V23. The clash episode happened very early in the run.

By the way - I have added it to the SSCD registry so it/they can now be registered and are part of the 1903-O set.

And the difference between feeling there's something more to it and being able to prove it's not listed? "Die studies, folks, die studies." If you don't do your own, leverage someone else's.
