Comments:

2- The 1900-O VAM-8 comes along with three other variations attributed as the VAM-8A, 1900-O VAM-8B, and 1900-O VAM-8C.
3- The difference between these is that the VAM-8B is a die clashed coin. The VAM-8 shows the O/CC mintmark details. The VAM-8A has the same mintmark along with pitting believed to be caused by rusted dies. The VAM-8B has these details with die clashed letters n,s,t, on the obverse and the designer's M on the reverse. The 8C has extensive polish marks to the reverse in an attempt to remove the clash damage.
4- The mintmark on the reverse which is the primary attribute to recognize the VAM-8 varieties. You will notice that the mintmarks on the VAM-8 varieties are also shifted slightly left of center.
