1921-P VAM-44 is also a scribbling scratches tailfeathers variety:

A couple of horizontal lines in the right wing are a key diagnostic:

I found two parallel gouges/lines on the right side of the bow, and there is a small scratch above the right ribbon:

There is a weak finger feed gouge through the A in STATES:

There are quite a few polishing lines in the cap folds, and between the cotton bolls:
