1. This is a "2 for 1". The 1883-O VAM 63A has been discovered but the VAM 63 (no beveling below tail feathers) is just a place holder.
2. VAM-63 has been attributed by LVA May 2019. Two examples of VAM-63A were sent in with this coin for comparison. See LVA's comments in 83-O VAM-63 paragraph at LVA's Discovery/Revision Letter Jun 2019
3. It should also be mentioned that the discovery piece has some nice die chips in the ear that could make nice Die Markers.
