Here is the comparison of mint marks for VAMs 6, 8, and 10:
There is a thin die scratch across the top of the "U" in PLURIBUS and a thin diagonal die scratch within the "U."
The obverse of the VAM 8 is shared with the VAM 9 (obverse die 1). There is a thin die scratch on Liberty's lip and polishing lines in the spaces between the three tiara rays on the right.
