The only photo up is a late die state coin that has been over polished. I see the indent on the 8 and what looks too be PMD
on the bottom of the 7. You could send it to Leroy as I know he has boxes of reference info in his basement storage. But from what I can see in your coin and the description it falls to "the die is the die" The reverse is a dead ringer and the date type matches the Vam description.
Your coin just looks to be an early die state of the Vam-12
