1921-D VAM-B1B found

I was looking through my collection of Morgan's last night. I'm trying to find VAM designations for all of them. I have over 100 that are either AU or BU.
I came across this beautiful VAM- B1B at least that's what I think it is. It's pretty cracked up.
I am not sure what you call the bright vertical polish mark on the reverse but its there and very obvious. I tried to take a picture of it but the coin has strong luster and it is difficult to pick it up in images.
It's a cool find. I still have about 90 more to go.
Is this coin worth a premium?

    Significant die crack, may be worth something to a VAM collector. Not sure it would be a large premium though. Cheers, RickO

    Most VAMs have small premiums to no premium.

    On VAM World they have a list of the top 100 VAMs. If not on that list I would say little to no premium.

    It's listed under the Hot 50 Morgand not the top 100 whatever that means.
    It's fun looking for the VAM numbers that's for sure.
    I also found a 1921P that has proof like surfaces.
