1- This VAM has a LOT going on...7/8 TF, clashed lettering, polished dies, "bearded" Lady Liberty... Examine a VAM-41-C and you see what VAM collecting is all about. This variety is last stage of the die state progression: 1878-P VAM-41, 1878-P VAM-41B, 1878-P VAM-41A, 1878-P VAM-41C. The suffixes are not in die progression order because of the times of discovery were not in order.
