Comments:
1- One of only five 1881-P varieties exhibiting clashed letter transfers identified to date.
(The others are VAM-1C2, VAM-14A and VAM-17A and VAM-1E)
2- VAM-1B is double-clashed with the transfer of a partial n from In at the neck edge and st from trust in the hair vee. The few specimens examined have been double-clashed. There may be single clash examples out there, but it is unknown if the letter transfers occurred on the first (or both) clashes.
