1921-D VAM-1CT Scribbling Die Scratches #21
1CT IV1 • D2a (Scribbling Die Scratches #21) (189) 1-2 R-5
Reverse D2a- Fine die scratches in various directions on over polished tail feathers around eagle's right leg and between eagle's left wing and body. Die marker - Single short polishing line at lower edge of eagle's left wing.
Scribbling scratches varieties are numerous and difficult to photograph. Many existing varieties include scribbling scratches features on the tailfeathers in addition to their primary features (pick up points). Most likely some of the new scribbling scratches varieties will be ultimately eliminated as early die states of known VAMs for which the die breaks, etc. have not yet formed.
