'''Comments:'''<br />
'''1-''' The 21-S VAM-6B has a deep die gouge between BU of PLURIBUS just as [[1921-S VAM-6A]]. VAM-6B also has a filled mint mark #4.<br />
If it were not for the very unique die gouge tying it to VAM-6A, this coin would have been thought to be a Philadelphia creation!<br />
'''2-''' The gouge is the best pickup point but in addition to the gouge, there is some die doubling. E PLUR is doubled towards the center of the coin and E-PL is also doubled at bottom inside towards rim. The left and right stars are doubled towards rim as well and some doubling is present in the date.<br />

Notice the D of DOLLAR shows weakness from the filled die that eliminated the mint mark.<br />
