The VAM 60A is the same as the VAM 60 with the addition of the incuse t of Trust showing in the right hair vee. The following three photos are seen on both the VAM 60 and the 60A. The fourth photo is of the location of the incuse t which makes the coin a VAM 60A.
A stronger shot of the clashed t in the first hair vee. [Think 1901-O VAM 1A LDS.] -- CLM
The mintmark on the VAM 60 and the VAM 60A is set a bit to the left.
This photograph does not show the clash at the neck or the tip of the n as strongly as it, in fact, appears on the coin. The locations are, however, correct.
The clashes on the reverse are a bit different--probably because of rotation at the time of the clash--with the double clashed cap back at the top wreath and over the leaf.-- CLM
The doubled neck clash runs from the wing into the left leg of the n. -- CLM
