COMMENTS: June 2007 - Leroy has split this variety into the 1921-S VAM-1AB1 and 1921-S VAM-1AB2. The VAM-1AB1 does not have the obverse file lines or the O gouge, but it has two die scratches at NE. The known VAM-1AB pictured below is now the VAM-1AB2, which is the polished version of the VAM-1AB1 without the two die scratches at NE.
