3B IV3 - D2b (Dot Next to Wing, Die Breaks Wing Tip & A) (189) I-4 R-7
Reverse D2b - Additional raised die breaks at denticles and raised field at top right of eagle's wing tip.
Die crack at top of TATE with break at top of A.
Comments:
1- The difference is that the 1921-D VAM-3A has the streamer wing but no break on the crack at the denticles. The break above the A may be found on some VAM-3A.

Pictured below is one of the mysterious 1921 dots (1921-P Dots, 1921-D Dots, 1921-S Dots), appearing below the eagle's right wing. Opinions on the origin of the dots range from hardness tests on the die, to markers identifying a specific die. One theory holds that they are the result of inferior die steel, with bubbles trapped in the steel, not made on purpose. These strange dots are found a few 1921 dies and can be located on coins produced at each of the three mints. Rare and elusive, 1921 coins with these dots will likely rise in value as more collectors pursue them.
