1921-S VAM-6B Die Gouge BU, Filled Mint Mark

Discovered by Rob Joyce, September 2004.
This coin is a Hit List 40 Morgan Vam.
6B IV 3 · D2e (Doubled Stars, Motto & Upper Reverse, Die Scratch BU, Missing S) (189) I-3 R-7
Obverse IV 3– Diagonal die scratch thru BU in PLURIBUS of VAM 6A. (Formerly VAM 1A)
Reverse D2e– Weakly struck lower reverse with S mint mark missing. (PCGS MS # 412698) 21-S Filled Mint Marks FDMM 4
Comments:
1- The 21-S VAM-6B has a deep die gouge between BU of PLURIBUS just as 1921-S VAM-6A. VAM-6B also has a filled mint mark #4.
If it were not for the very unique die gouge tying it to VAM-6A, this coin would have been thought to be a Philadelphia creation!
2- The gouge is the best pickup point but in addition to the gouge, there is some die doubling. E PLUR is doubled towards the center of the coin and E-PL is also doubled at bottom inside towards rim. The left and right stars are doubled towards rim as well and some doubling is present in the date.

Notice the D of DOLLAR shows weakness from the filled die that eliminated the mint mark.
