1921-P VAM-3A "SPIKED TAIL"

Discovered by Del Ford, February 1974.
This die variety is an unusual series of three known die states that progressively add more die gouges. This is a cool variety as the spiked tail feather can be seen with the naked eye!
3A IV 1 · D2a (Spiked Tail Feathe) (189) I-3 R-5
Reverse D2a– Horizontal die gouge extending to right from number 3 tail feather.
3A1(revised) IV 1 · D2a (Spiked Tail Feather, Die Gouges State 1) (189) I-3 R-5
Reverse D2a– First die gouge state with horizontal die gouge extending to right from number 3 tail feather.
3A2(revised) IV 1 · D2a (Spiked Tail Feather, Die Gouges State 2) (189) I-3 R-6
Reverse D2a– Second die gouge state with added small rounded die gouge at top of R in DOLLAR.
3A3 IV 1 · D2a (Spiked Tail Feather, Die Gouges State 3) (189) I-3 R-6
Reverse D2a– Third die gouge state with added wide die gouge thru middle of second L in DOLLAR.
December 2009 update: See the page for 1921-P VAM-3EK, which is the EDS of the VAM-3A (the 3EK page is still active here and has some more photos of this die variety). Leroy has eliminated the VAM-3EK.

VAM-3A2 Spiked Tail Feather, Die Gouge State 2
Die gouge emerging from the top of the R in DOLLAR and die gouge from tail feather.

VAM-3A3 Spiked Tail Feather, Die Gouge State 3
Wide die gouge extending horizontally thru the middle of the second L in DOLLAR. Other die gouges still present emerging from the tail feather and from the top of the R in DOLLAR
