Below is an image of a VAM-19A with the 1 indexed two and a half denticles to the right measured from the point of the neck. Notice the edge of the 1 aligns with the center of the denticle. Also, the distinctive die crack is found only on VAM-19A coins (I'm not sure if VAM-19A coins come without the die crack but if it is present, it is a "smoking gun" indicator).
Here is the VAM-19A "barwing" die break.
