Technically the number associated with a die pair is called a VAM
number. Individual characteristics, i.e., doubling, cracks, die scratches, cuds, gouges, are called "pick-up points" or PUPS. These identify both the die involved in the minting and the progression in the die's service life.
So what then is the proper way to ask if someone sees certain characteristics?
I commented so others, not familiar with VAMs, would not be confused with the terminology. All Morgan and Peace dollars
are VAMs ... a cataloging number identifying both obverse and reverse dies used and the die state at the time of minting.
Use the term "PUPS" when referring to individual characteristics of the die.
