1. Since VAM numbers are assigned by die classification, and not just by die pairing, multiple die pairings may exist.
2. Easily mistaken for the VAM-15 because of the far slanted date. Since some of the rare prooflikes are from this die pair, like the one imaged here, the arrow doubling for VAM-15 can appear to be there. The clear doubling above the 2 in the date is what marks this obverse distinctly
