1. An extremely rare and sought after VAM with only two known, and only one of the two confirmed. (as of 08/14/14)
2. There are two totally different clash episodes of the VAM-25 dies. One of the easier ways to tell the difference is that the lower left wreath leaves on the "25C" are disconnected from polishing. The die progression is believed to be 25, 25B episode, got polished for 25A, then 25C.
