Obverse III21– Clashed die with faint tick of partial incuse n of In from reverse next to Liberty head neck and faint partial clashed s and weak t at lower hair vee on early clashed specimens. Date at left edge of normal position. Faint counter-clash at back of cap below ribbon. Die marker - Tiny die chip at back of Phrygian cap fold.
Reverse C3a– Clashed die with faint raised designer’s initial M from obverse above d in God.

Comments:
1. Key marker is the die chip on Phrygian Cap found on all specimens (you may not see it on lower grade coins due to wear, with some searching vam 1C is relatively easy to find up to ms63,but gets harder to find in ms64 or better.
2. Very similar to VAM-14A, please confirm date placement and reverse crack between C A of america and eagles right wing.
3. Mid die state coins show an "st" clash also. Photos below.
