ok so this is a bad pic...but from what I can see, there seems to be die gouges on the obverse.

first gouge goes from the "1" through the neck over to "T" in trust.

the 2nd is diagonal in her tiara near her forehead and then again toward the back of her tiara into the hair bun..

i couldnt find anything on the reverse. looks normal. I will get a pic up of that soon..

I am no good at Peace VAM's so I can be of no help on this one. I have two Peace dollars graded by ANACS here, one is labeled as a DDR and the other as a VAM-2. I have looked at these things numerous times and see absolutely nothing on either of them to indicate what is doubled or what makes the other one a VAM-2

it will just take some time, also these are die cracks, yet are finger prints, there is on your first picture a die crack going through the lower portion of the neck area, also it could be a die gouge on the reverse on the right side of the eagle, in the rays there. I think I have one like that some where...

The photo is great.

What are you using, for a camera and lens?

Something I wanted to mention, but never got around to it - is that a die scratch on the obverse, running through the cap below "RT"? That will be a "smoking gun" diagnostic, if you can ever find out what VAM it's associated with.

I couldn't.
The best thing about a bicycle is that it uses no gasoline, therefore the chance of fiery death is greatly reduced.
