Comments:
1. The VAM-14A is an interesting R-6 variety discovered by Bill Van Note in June 2004. It exhibits three distinct clashes. Two partial n clashes, one right on top of the other, are at the neck. Below the hair vee, there are two s clashes and three t clashes from trust in the reverse motto. They are very subtle and difficult to image.
2. The VAM Update only mentions a single n clash.
3. Finally, there is a full clash of the designer's initial M above and to the right of the reverse motto d (IGWT). In the image here, look at the top just above the dark band of toning.
4. Different dies than VAM 14 die1 , 2 and 4
