7B III2 7 • C3a (High 9, Slightly Doubled Ear, First Clashed Obverse n) (190) I-2 R-5
Obverse III2 7 – Later die state than VAM 7A. Clashed die with partial incuse n of In from reverse showing faintly next to Liberty head neck. Die clash marks showing at Liberty head lips and cap back at ribbon of normal hardened die. Later die state has partial clashed n worn away.

Reverse C3a - Normal two vertical die clash lines at In-G and left and right wreath tops that didn't show for VAM 23A strong obverse die clash episode. Same die as for VAM 23 series, later die state after VAM 23 obverse die deteriorated prematurely due to faulty die hardening and was retired. Later die state has single vertical clash lines at IN-G polished away.

Comments:
1. On the LDS there is a triple clash to the neck (no letter transfer) on the Obverse and on the Reverse, there is a faint 2 + 1 clash in the right wreath.
