1900-O VAM-23E Near Slanted Date, High O, Die Break S
Discovered October 2010
23E III2 15- C3I (Near Slanted Date, High O, Die Break S) (?) I-2 R-6
Reverse C3I– Die crack at top of STATES OF with small die break at top left of right S in STATES. Similar to VAM 23C break at S but die crack is lower on right side of S.
1. This is going to be one of those VAMs where EDS examples with only die cracks can be identified as the 23E die pair, but are just VAM-23 because the feature for which the VAM was designated has not formed.
2. Compare to VAM 47B which is very similar, only an earlier die state - possibly a duplicate.
