Obverse IV 1 - Some left and right stars slightly doubled

1. Some LDS examples of the VAM 1CL exhibit rather distinctive cracks, including a crack very similar to the D break in the VAM 1N Unicorn D. Two examples of coins with these cracks were submitted to Leroy Van Allen in July, 2008 by cmerlo and raybob15239. Leroy's response was that the D crack needed to have a bigger break out into the field to list and the S crack was just too thin. This die crack was originally known as JOH-24
