1N III2 1 - C3a (Die Break T, Over Polished Wing Feathers) (?) I-2 R-6
Obverse III2 1 - Same die as VAM-1F, but earlier die state.
Reverse C3a - Light die file lines in fields with heaver lines at UNITED that has die crack at top. Two radial die cracks from rim at right side of T in UNITED with slight displaced field break plus die chips at top of T. Some over polished feathers in eagle's wings. Break at T likely led to early die replacement for VAM-1F die combo.
