I have two of these with the same die pair.I'm pretty sure the obverse is that of the VAM 32 With the die line in the "R" of LIBERTY.
The reverse I question though.The mint mark seams a little different.In the first m/m shown of the "Additional Photos" by LVA,where the "lines" inbetween the upper loop and the lower loops meet,they are straight up and down.On Mine they are at an angle.Also,I can't see a short spike,in the far left of the upper loop,indicated in the last LVA photo.
I have looked for the doubling towards the rim on TED, STATES OF AMERICA, motto, right wreath leaves, top leaves of left wreath and top of eagle's head with a microscope on 10x and 20x,a 10x loop,and for the life of Me,I can't see any lines or notches indicating doubling.Some pull away toning,but,no doubling.It's possible I don't know what I'm looking at I guess.?
There is no chip in "G" of GOD.
The angle of the die file lines,from the Eagles left wing down,are at another angle than Mine.Mine go down to the 4th leaf cluster,not the 5th.
This obverse is shared with VAMs 15 (again,no spike in the upper loop),16 (no chip on the right wing),and 21 (m/m tilts left,not right)
So,what say you?Is it a EDS of VAM 32,a different reverse die,or what's going on here?

No filled "G" in GOD.

Die file lines are at a different angle.
