New 1922-S double eagle variety

The NGC photo VP-002 was added to the original post. After accounting for different lighting, the two are likely the same. Would want to see the upper obverse and reverse below eagle to verify. Have updated my dB file.

Can someone expound on "die state" vs. variety ?

...basically...different dies or same dies...for example 1845 liberty seated qrt n 1845/45 liberty seated qrt...different dies different variety, could also be when one of the dies is changed out n the subsequent coins r now from a different die pair, again different variety...die state is usually coins from same pair of dies demonstrating die wear erosion or expanding die cracks, but all coins from same pair of this instance its a bit confusing, apparently the newly discovered coin with all the die polishing is from the same die pair that apparently was used to strike other coins before the die polishing since the polishing is being referred to as removing clash marks, if clash marks n not simple damage to the dies then it would indicate the dies were used...i guess the definitive answer will be if the remaining marks actually align correctly to verify clash marks n not random damage...if in fact clash marks then the different coins would be from the same die pair, perhaps since the polishing of the dies isnt really die erosion from use that lends to classifying this as a variety n not a die state??? DWL is the source for that explanation...hopefully this reply assists n doesnt confuse....

Here are composite and detail photos of a new 1922-S double eagle variety. 

Roger, you have posted many times that you think the marketing stuff on labels is just that -- marketing.  Even if true, you think it is insignificant in many cases.

Curious as to how significant you think this coin's pedigree is.
