Characteristics are described with a degree of granularity intended for die identification more so than for die classification. A characteristic may not span the entire die progression. Thus, not all characteristics may be present in any one coin.

Comments: Was a VAM-60. [ This Oct 2020 Revision Letter ] killed it.
VAM-7B split into VAM-7B1 and 7B2 per LVA Letter dated 22 May 2021. Collar clash at 9 O'clock makes the 7B2.
