In an effort to promote consistent page formatting, styles and information presented, please try to use the following formats. To copy this to a new page, create the new page you want and start to edit it, then edit this page and copy the markup text in the editor to the editor in the new page, then cancel editing this page. Include the P mint mark for Philadelphia. VAM should be capitalized and a hyphen should follow VAM and precede the VAM number: e.g. 1921-D VAM-1A2. Use only Leroy Van Allen's specification to describe the obverse and reverse dies. The comments section can be used to indicate further insights on the variety, as can captions for the images. Avoid using arcane abbreviations or colloquialisms that will be unfamiliar to the casual user.
