I don't know if my eyes are playing tricks on me because the pics get too blurry when I zoom in but from a little ways out it looks like this might have a doubled ear. It should be round in the bottom and the doubled ear variety for this one is about the same size as the earlobe and comes down to a point, almost like tear shape depending on condition. The other reason is there is a dot in the exact same place below the 8 in the date. I can't tell if it's just a stain and coincidental but what do you see? Also there might be a die scratch running NW-SE through the N-I in United. If so they I'm guessing it's a winner. Can you possibly get any higher resolution pics of the ear?
