1921-D VAM-6A Stretched 3rd Left Star

Reclassification find by C. Logan McKechnie, April 2004 (Desirability:star3.gif)
Formerly 1921-D VAM-1AS Discovered by Jack Lee, March 2004 (a short-lived double-listing not related to the current 1921-D VAM-1AS)
Formerly JOH-2 Discovered by Rob Joyce, December 2001

6A(revised) IV 5 · D2d (Tripled Left Stars, Doubled Reverse, Die Break Stretched Third Left Star) (189) I-3 R-6
Obverse IV 5– Die crack thru bottom of 1–5 left stars with die break on left side of third left star stretching the point. Late die state has small die chips on right sides of 9 & 2.

Comments: This coin has a die break on the third left star, stretching the top left point twice the normal length. Considered by the author as a very interesting break, it is hard to see with the naked eye, but quite striking when viewed with magnification.
The VAM-6A designation was defined when Logan McKechnie discovered doubling on the bottom of the letters UNITED STATES OF AMERICA towards the center of the center. The variety also has very slightly tripled left stars towards rim.
A die crack also goes through the first left star from the neck and forms an X. VAM-2B also shows a similar X below the neck.
