'''1.''' This is an [[8 Tailfeather Morgan|eight tailfeather]] variety. This variety shares the reverse A1d with VAMs [[1878-P VAM-6|6]], [[1878-P VAM-7|7]], [[1878-P VAM-14.5|14-5]], [[1878-P VAM-14.8|14-8]], and [[1878-P VAM-14.19|14-19]]. VAMs 6 and 7 are relatively common(R-5???), but the other three are major rarities.<br />
'''2.''' V7 does come lightly clashed and a very nicely doubled neck line<br />
