1. New unlisted die combo of doubled profile of VAM-11 Obv III2-7 combined with VAM-15 Rev C4g with high O tilted left, set right. Also, according to Leroy, the break at the 4 in the date MUST be there to be a V42A. Otherwise, it is a V42. (By the way, Leroy's reference to the V11 obverse and V15 reverse are merely the "die classification" system still at work. They are not the same dies. By the way, the V15 has since been delisted the same as the V31.)
