I like that 1893 form the Charlotte mint! :lol:
That fill lasted for quite a while. My 93-CC is a VAM 4, and there are even some higher grade ones on CoinFacts.

Yep. Charlotte management couldn't decide if they were secret or not, so they left just a shadow of the "C" to kind of hedge their bets. ;)

Since I’m still very new to vams
My question is why
Is the 1921 D vam 9a so coveted?
Shouldn't it be removed from
The vam pages, since similar coins are not Attributable? Someone with more knowledge please clue me in?
Think I will stick with the Scarface
Variety as that’s always desirable!
:D

It's coveted because those who have been looking for it have found it to be quite rare. Despite the fact that newly discovered missing letter die fills aren't cataloged as VAMs, there's no compelling need to purge the catalog of those that were in the past. They all state what they are -- filled dies -- and they have been known to the hobby, including TPGs, by their VAM numbers for quite some time. New filled dies are somewhat cataloged with comments and pictures on the VAMWorld wiki under the correct VAM number that represents the die pair. Filled dies are technically striking errors, but people like them, especially when a letter is cleanly missing, and communicating what can be found is still important despite them not being assigned VAM numbers.

And, yeah, you can't go wrong with a Scarface.
