Comments:
1- 1888 VAM-11 Doubled Ear. This VAM has strong doubling along the back side of the ear down to the lobe as well as inside the ear. The 1888 VAM-11 is fairly available so collectors should seek out a nice mint state example. If you locate a VAM-11 be sure to check for die clashing to see if it is a VAM-11a.
