Here is my photo of a coin (I actually have 3 of them) that has the line at A and the crack from the lower wreath through the R, but it doesn't yet have the crack that branches off to the right to the wreath leaf tip.

What is the right VAM attribution to assign to this coin... 93, 93A, or 93A EDS?
When in doubt... don't.

Since 93 shows no cracks at the R of DOLLAR and 93A shows a "Y" crack above the R, yours appears to be intermediate between the two. So do we need a 93B? Please say no!

We need something to call VAM 93, so yours may as well be it. There's no additional die pairs in play that are called VAM 93, so saying VAM 93 does not introduce any ambiguity there.

Thanks John. VAM 93 it is.
