Reverse C3a – Faint partial raised designer’s initial M from obverse showing above d in God.
1. Later die state of VAM-24. There is a scratch thru the initial and a die chip on the cap between the top of the cap and the left leaf.
2. The plate photos of the chip on cheek, lines on right wing, and doubled ribbon, are most likely actually a VAM-50/50A and not a 24/24A. Shared reverse with VAM-33B but has not been confirmed by LVA.
LVA Plate Photos:
This is the 24A plate photo with die markers pointed out. The arrows were added by me and are not on LVA's plate photo. There is a curved die scratch in the hairvee from the left outer hair strand to above the right outer hair strand. Above the 3rd left inner hair strand there are two polishing lines that intersect to form a triangle.
