Comments:
1- If you have a coin with a broken star, a chip in the very top of L in LIBERTY and a clash mark under the chin, you may want to read the discussions here. http://www.vamworld.com/message/view/home/52090144 http://www.vamworld.com/message/view/home/48891329
2-The key pick-up-points are the chip in the upper portion of the letter “L” in LIBERTY and the position of the obverse clash (extending from Liberty's jawbone). (MW)
3- 225 and 225A are different die pairs. (JB)
4- Some VAM 225A's don't clearly show the denticle impressions.(JR)
