Scribbling scratches varieties are numerous and difficult to photograph. Many existing varieties include scribbling scratches features on the tailfeathers in addition to their primary features (pick up points). When possible, we will attempt to show non-scribbling scratches die features to help with attribution. Most likely some of the new scribbling scratches varieties will be ultimately eliminated as early die states of known VAMs for which the die breaks, etc. have not yet formed.
