Discovered November 2007
3DL IV 1 • D2a (Scribbling Die Scratches #73) (189) I-2 R-5
Reverse D2a– Fine die scratches in various directions on over polished tail feathers around eagle’s right leg and between eagle's left wing and body. Die marker - Diagonal die scratch thru bottom of F in OF.
1- Writes of the VAM-3DL: "Scribbles at eagle's leg, die scratch/gouge thru F & dot on inner left wing feather."
The VAM-3DL has a lot going on for a scribbling scratches variety. There is a vertical die gouge in the F of OF and there is a pronounced dot on the third inner feather of the left wing.

Hopefully this nice die scratch/gouge through the F in OF occurred throughout the die life of the VAM-3DL:
