'''1-''' [[1921-D VAM-1L2]]<br />'''1L2 IV 1 · D2a (Die Break AM, Die Scratches ERI) (189) I-3 R-6'''<br />'''Reverse D2a–''' Late die state shows fine polishing lines thru bottom of ERI and vertical polished bands thru n G of In God,<br />'''2-.''' The VAM-1L variety has one of the nicer breaks in the 1921-D grouping. There is a significant die break emerging from the top left side of the M in AMERICA, running to the left toward the neighboring A. Look at the size of the break coming off the M!<br /><br />

Please note that there is an amazingly similar die crack in the same shape as the die break on the VAM-1AR coin. If you have what looks like a VAM-1L early die state, be sure to check the diagnostic cracks on the [[1921-D VAM-1AR|VAM-1AR]] to be certain of the attribution. One key to distinguishing a VAM-1L coin from [[1921-D VAM-1AR|VAM-1AR]] is the slightly upward curving crack between the IC of AMERICA.<br />
