Odds are good that the first thing you will notice about both 3ED1 and 3ED2 is a bold diagonal crack that goes downward from the 6th right star to Liberty’s hair. It is on both VAMs. A smaller crack links most of the other right stars, but does it more completely on 3ED2:

If the coin is a 3ED2 the 2nd thing you’ll probably notice is a horizontal crack from Liberty’s lower neck through the top of the 2nd left star and into the rim (which 3ED1 does not have):

The third thing you may notice on a 3ED2 is a thin crack from the U in PLURIBUS into the wheat leaf (which 3ED1 does not have):

3ED2 has considerable counter-clashing at the back of Liberty’s cap, but 3ED1 has none:

3ED2 also has clashing adjacent to the eagle’s left wing, but 3ED1 has none:

Both VAMs have finger feed gouges at the 1st S in STATES, but they are stronger on 3ED1:

There are also a few miscellaneous cracks shared by the two VAMs:
