There is a line of belief that the VAM 4A needs to be in the VAM 3A chain and there may well be an E hidden on the coin. [CLM, April 2012]
Two die gouges near the eagle's right leg [viewer's left] are major confirmation points.
The coin clearly has the beginnings of the same obverse break as is seen on the 1891-O VAM 3A2.
And, the break continues to the end, the same as the break on the 3A2 obverse.
