'''Comments:''' <br />
'''1.''' Note from LVA 13 Nov 09, " VAM-12 O/O Left is also likely machine doubling. *Note from LVA, April,16,2011* "85-O raw - VAM 12 ''revised''. Yes, looks like bar in left side of O m/m opening of VAM 12 pictured in VAM book. Had been wondering if it was machine doubling but don't see any evidence of it on other letters or devices. So looks like re-punched O m/m & I've identified some die markers. '''Nice''' DMPL!"<br />
2. As noted above, available in PL/DMPL.<br />
