1921-P VAM-39A Dot on Wing, Die Break Reverse Right Star Top
Discovered by John Baumgart, August 2006. Revised 2010.
39A (revised) IV 1 · D2g (Dot on Wing, Die Break Reverse Right Star Top) (189) I-2 R-6
Reverse D2g - Heavy die crack thru bottom of DOLLAR and right star with small break on top of right side of star. (Formerly VAM 3AE)
1- Specimens of the 1921-P VAM-39A will also show the "Die Break LIBERTY Band" noted for the 1921-P VAM-39B, which occurred before the die break over the reverse star found on the 1921-P VAM-39A. We know this because you can find examples of the LIBERTY break without the break on the star, but all specimens with the star break show the LIBERTY break as well. Basically, the 39B "happened first", with the 39A coming later in the die progression.
