Comments:
1. In the past LVA has labeled the VAM-10 with the die crack thru the date as " another VAM-1 die marriage ". He has since seen a VAM-10 EDS and LDS side by side and determined this to be a VAM-10 LDS, so check your VAM-1 die marriages. The dies on the late die state are nearly always found heavily eroded,and lightly clashed with no letter transfer
2. Threadlike impression on Phrygian Cap
