Comments:
1- The Discovery Coin and one other I have seen are the only others I've seen in this late die stage.
It is a TRUE VAM11A!!! It has all FOUR clashes.
2- The progression of the coin is thus:
VAM 11 has a single clash in the Normal Position. Die breaks free and rotation begins, A double clash event occur
while dies are out some 33-52º CCW. at some point they reset the dies to Normal position and the Final clash occurs in the Normal position giving us 2+2 clashing
