1V IV 1 · D2a (Die Break O, Scribbling Die Scratches) (189) I-2 R-6
(Revision 08/16/2009) - Most left and right stars slightly doubled/tripled towards rim.
Reverse D2a– Small die breaks at top left and right of O in OF. Different than VAM 1M die break.
(Revision 08/16/2009) - Fine double die scratches in various directions on over polished tail feathers around eagle's right leg and between eagle's left wing and body. I D mint mark slightly tilted to left. Die marker- Heavy diagonal die polishing line between 8 & 9 outer feathers from bottom of eagle's left wing. Late die states have small breaks at top left and right on O of OF.
Comments: Collectors can have a Devil of a time finding examples of this die break. Two small breaks emerge from the top of the O in OF to make it appear as if it has small Devilish horns. This coin is different than the VAM-1M and VAM-1F die break.
