This variety has a late late die state (as shown below) with major die sinking and the obverse "n" clash worn away. If you have an example of this variety, you have a VAM-6, not a VAM-6B, because the VAM-6B critical features are no longer present on this die state. Many sellers mistakenly sell the VNA as the VAM-6B, a VAMview listed variety with a modest premium. The 1886-P VAM-6 VNA is available in higher grades. For more, please see photos and Leroy's comments at the 1886-P VNA Varieties page.
Photo is of one of several diagnostics for 1886-P VAM-6 VNA, which is commonly mistaken for the VAM-6B, but more commonly encountered.
