'3DC1 I'IV 1 • D2a (Scribbling Die Scratches #64) (189) I-2 R-5

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:
