The first set of photos below are from a single clashed VAM 5 that is an exact marriage match (Obv & Rev) for the 1882-P VAM-5A n clash.

A VEDS example exists with Metal in the Date and NO chip present on the G of God. Here are two examples of the VAM 5A die pair, VAM 5's. Note there is another marker, a distinct set of die scratches in the right wing tip, to aid in identification of the "VAM 5A" marriage.

There is a little more doubling in the date than is noted in the VAM book's description. I may send the coin in to get it revised. Nonetheless, the stub on the 1 is all that is needed to attribute a VAM-5. The below doubling could possibly be that of the the VAM 7 as described or "Multiple Die pairs may exist".
