Here we see two connections between the star and the final A in AMERICA. The "top" connector at the bottom serif of the A is a die scratch and is straight. The "bottom" connector at the top of the A is a die break and is not perfectly straight:

The exact coin in this one photo of "trust" was verified by Leroy Van Allen as a VAM-5C. Note the presumed die wear around the "t" and "r" in "trust". However, there is no die gouge between the "O" of "OF" and the "u" of "trust" as in the 1921-D VAM-13.
