1. VAMs 1C2 shares the same reverse as the VAM-1C1 and VAM-1C3, However the VAM-1C1 has a different obverse.
2. VAM 1C2's reverse is double clashed and boasts a clashed M above OD in GOD. VAM 1C2 obverse has fine parallel polishing lines underneath earlobe, and fine polish lines in lower hair area. The late die state of this VAM has a very nice break at the wing tip, and is very desirable! (LDS now VAM-1C3)
