Or such a tiny thing, who could care.
I had a few minutes to have some fun searching this evening and this bit of an anomaly popped up.
Just for fun I thought I would post it.
Could be a bubble or a bit of doubling .
What think ye?

Hmmm.
Good question. It does resemble a lot of Modern DDO ear lobes.

If you have patience, it might be fun to send in and see what happens. They might need a second example or a BU example to attribute though.
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups.
We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

Looks like below the shoulder there could be the same thing happening? But it is not the "Doubled Ear Lobe". There is a marker for that die:

On the inside edge of the rim for that die.

Never a doubt that this wasn't die #1.
I might look into sending it to Wexler just to see.
Thanks all !

Given the abundance of plating ridges on the coin, I think I'd poke it with a small porcupine quill just to see what happens.

TB, I'm fresh out of porcupines but I'll hit my rose bush tomorrow for a green thorn and give it a poke !
