'''Comments:'''<br />
'''1-''' There are several minor stages of this reverse. It is actually the exact die used for the entire VAM-3 sequence before it is mated with the VAM-4 obverse.<br />
'''2-''' The gouge the the E of STATES is only found on some VAM-4 examples, and fades before the 'pinned wing' gouge of VAM-4A occurs.<br />
'''Note:''' According to John Roberts, as of July 2012, ''"this study is a work in progress."''<br />
