The original discovery coin (as shown in the right ‘1883 P VAM 1A Clashed n’ plate photo below) is now thought to be a late die state of VAM 39. The other photos below are regarding the 2015 revision, and are now designated as VAM 49. So any designated VAM 1A might either be examples of VAM 39 or more likely VAM 49.
