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). When possible, we will attempt to show non-scribbling scratches die features to help with attribution. Some of the new scribbling scratches varieties have been eliminated as early die states of known VAMs for which the die breaks, etc. have not yet formed, and more will likely follow.
COMMENTS: This VAM has been eliminated, as it is the same as 1921-D VAM-18.
Die cracks may not appear on EDS specimens and may be more pronounced on LDS coins:

*Another pick up point seen on some examples of this VAM is a tiny "tongue" gouge jutting out from the eagle's beak.
