1. If you have a coin with a broken star, a chip in the very top of L in LIBERTY and a clash mark under the chin, you may want to read the discussions here. [[1]] [[2]]
2. The key pick-up-points are the chip in the upper portion of the letter “L” in LIBERTY and the position of the obverse clash (extending from Liberty's jawbone). (MW)
3. 225 and 225A are different die pairs. (JB)
4. Some VAM 225A's don't clearly show the denticle impressions.(JR)
