Right 1 has broken doubling diagonally across bottom left side of vertical shaft to center of base, possibly due to defective digit punch.
Reverse C3l - O mint mark set left
- VAM 3 and VAM 32 are evil mimics of each other. Both have strong doubling on 18 and O set left, but VAM 3 has stronger doubling and an upright mint mark.
