Comments:
1. The different stages of the VAM-7 die life have now been categorized as VAMs 7, 7A, 7B, 7C, and 7D. The VAM-7C is represented with or without the gouge from the tailfeathers to the field between arrow head shaft and olive branch. There are two large photos on this page showing the diference and they are labeled EDS and LDS.

Threads:
1. There's been some confusion on this series in the past as this Dicussion Thread will attest [7C vs 7D. ]
