"Sorry for posting photos that nobody desires." ???
I don't get what you meant nor that I care.

The coin photo you posted here, does not look to be VAM-25 to me. First of all, the date position is different than VAM-25A. I don't think VAM-25 is listed by die classification since the Reverse description is very specific.
Do you have a close up photo of those polishing lines in middle of both wings to confirm?

The reverse PUPS led me originally to conclude that the coin was VAM-25, now I see that triple ear bottom of VAM-50. Still, no information is provided as to the make-up of what the reverse of a VAM-50 should look like.

It is listed as a C3a reverse.
Reverse C3a- Normal die of C3 type with medium III O mint mark centered and upright.
