1921-P VAM-3DC1 Scribbling Die Scratches #64

Discovered by C. Logan McKechnie October 2007.
'3DC1 I'IV 1 • D2a (Scribbling Die Scratches #64) (189) I-2 R-5
Reverse D2a– 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 - Diagonal die gouge thru right tail feather above arrow shaft.
1- The coin in the first photo below is a late die state (LDS) example of this variety. While the major scribbles features have been worn away from die wear, the heave gouge/polishing line shown by the green arrows is very recognizable and should be used as the primary pick up point for this VAM regardless of die stage:

I also noticed that when I tilt the coin under the right light, a totally different line of gouges pops into view:
