The VAM-1F die break forms a triangle inside the top center of the M in AMERICA. There is also a small break extending from the top left of the E.
Another small die break extends to the top right of the A in STATES. This break is visible on the coin before the small die break forms on the M and E of AMERICA so it is useful to identifying EDS VAM-1F coins.
Very late die states of this coin have a “horned O” die break on the word OF. A similar break occurs on several 1921-D varieties including VAM-1V and VAM-1M.
