 '''Comments:'''<br /> '''1.''' The VAM-38 can be quickly identified by the over polished area separating the eagle's leg and wing along with five remaining tips of the 8TF reverse under the reimpressed 7 tail feathers. The tips are located between tail feathers 2 and 3, 3 and 4, 4 and 5, and under feathers 5 and 6.<br />
