1. "VAM 9. Yes, has same dies as VAM 1A1 coin with same die cracks on obv & rev. Radial die crack at BU doesn't have significant displaced field yet. But did add note to 1A1 description that has slight displaced field break. No die clash marks however on this coin. No clashed E, so can't be listed as 1A. Made it Die 2 of VAM 9 with notation is EDS of 1A. Can't change VAM # of clashed E 1A since has been used for over 40 years."
