Obverse III2 1 - Die 1. Clashed with partial incuse s of trust from reverse showing at hair edge to right of lower right hair vee. Shift due to 10° CW rotation. Later die state than VAM-6A. Light polishing lines in fields, heaviest at URIB.

1. Note that the die progression sequence is 6A > 6D > 6B > 6C and the obverse die was changed for VAM-6B and the dies re-clashed for VAM-6C.
2. Small breaks at the first right star, as in VAM-6A, plus die polish.
