Hubs to Dies
New VAM Variety
With Die 8 the left 1 is slightly doubled at the bottom of the upper crossbar, and at the top right of the vertical shaft. The left 8 the familiar short die chip at approximately 11 o'clock in the inside of the upper loop.
Another minor feature is a slight doubling of the profile from the hair down to the chin.
Die 16 only appears with reverse die a, but with characteristics that can be subtle to recognize at first.
