There appears to be an extra ray to right of eagle's head and above right wing. Its also going in the wrong direction. Is this standard for 1923?

Could be VAM-1E1 Very Widely Spaced Double Clash Spike Eagle's Shoulder, or VAM-1I Die Break UNIT, Widely Spaced Double Spikes Eagle's Shoulder, or VAM-1K Double Clash Spike Eagle's Shoulder, or Double Clash Spikes Eagle's Shoulder, Die File Lines Obverse. Either way, it's a clash. Is it possible to show both sides of the coin and a detailed shot of the shoulder spike(s)?

I see the ray above the wing, but not the one to the right of the eagle's head. We need a close up of both areas to be able to see what it really is.

Die clash seems very likely. Close ups of those two areas would be helpful.

I'm leaning toward the 1E1.

Since I'm at it do you guys think this is a die break in the bottom rays running horizontal to right of the branch?

I was thinking either a die gouge or a die clash, it lines up nicely as a clash from the back of the neck.

Thanks for the feedback fellas. Any idea if it would add significant value or what it might be worth?
