1921-D VAM-8 Doubled Left Stars, Doubled Reverse

Discovered by Jefff Oxman, March 2001. Listing updated August 2007, for which Leroy used a 1921-D VAM-8A specimen:
8 (revised) IV 7 D2d (Doubled Left Stars, Reverse, Scribbling Die Scratches) (189) I-2 R-4
Obverse IV 7 - Slight doubling of all left stars and E-P towards rim. Right stars very slightly doubled to tripled towards rim.
Reverse D2d - Fine die scratches in various directions on over polished tail feathers around eagle's right leg, between eagle's left wing and body and in middle of both wings. Die marker - Long diagonal polishing line in lower middle of eagle's left wing.
Comments: Note: Leroy's listing description for the 1921-D VAM-8 is as the EDS of the 1921-D VAM-8A (or 8A as the LDS of the VAM-8, whichever you prefer). However, the 1921-D VAM-8B has different scribbling scratches, breaks, and other features from the VAMs 8 and 8A, and thus likely came from different dies.
