VAM 5A DESCRIPTION:
5A II 1 · B2c (Scar Cheek, Tripled Olive Leaves) I-3 R-6
Obverse II 1 - Vertical die break and large die chip just behind Liberty’s mouth.
Reverse B2c - Tripled olive leaves.
COMMENTS: The 1922 Vam 5A is named for the large die break that forms a scar on the cheek. As with other die breaks with progressions, the
later die stages command higher premiums. All Vam 5A's show a die gouge under the "G" in "GOD". Collectors should come to their own conclusions about
the rarity of the sub-varieties.
