In a revision of his description of this VAM, Leroy Van Allen noted in October 2013 that there was a shallow vertical die gouge left of the left S in STATES on the reverse of the coin. He indicated this would be seen on EDS examples of the VAM 37A.

A line at the base of the denticles from the date to the third right star on the obverse, as shown in the photo below and on the full image is a good pick-up point for the coin. CLM, October 2013.
