||||= From the VAM-7, there is doubling in the date, notably on the 8, and the CC mint mark is tilted with the top of the second C nearly touching the wreath bow. ||

||||= The VAM-7A, the current key variety (R-6) for the date, is distinguished by extensive cracking through STATES in the reverse legend. The VAM Update specifies this for VAM-7A. However, it has also been noted on the parent VAM-7 obverse. There is also a die gouge behind the eye on the obverse. ||
