Did I mess up selling this? Why did it sell for so much? I thought it was a $2 coin.

The coin has a full horn which I believe was once a requirement for VF and may still be to some people. If I remember correctly, this date like many of the other mintmarked issues from the 1920's doesn't usually come well struck. Yours looks like it may have been one of the exceptions.

Well if you only expected to get a buck or whatever for it and got much more be happy rather than dwell on the past and what could be if anything unless someone comes on here next week and posts about their rare unknown die variety they just scored off of eBay for $6

That's a seriously strong strike for the issue. You can find them in Mint State with that much horn.

I would grade the coin VF-30. Price guides will have it worth slightly more, but the price you got on eBay is pretty much exactly what I'd expect. I was appropriate.

29-D, although it had some issues, is not noted as being one of the worst struck in the series like say, 25-S. Furthermore, this is actually not really a great strike if you ask me. It is probably just slightly above average. The horn looks to never have had a pointed tip, just a dull one and the buffalo's head and upper back are just decent. The coin is really nothing special as far as strike goes. With the mintage somewhat accessible and it being later in the series, enough surviving 29-D examples survived with full detail for it to have never been a problem.
