||||= 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. ||
