I purchased this one last week off ebay it was a poor picture but the description was correct about the die cracks on the obverse and that gave it some great possibilities as to a nice dp9 variety.
The gung was pretty heavy around the 9 so it was hard to tell. I took a chance and bid and won it as it turns out it was not the dp9 but it was one I needed in the 65a die pairs the last one I needed to finish those Haxby die pairs, so it was a treasure in one way.
It has some added die cracks that are not mentioned on the Haxby web site on this coin but it is a PC59-65a 65a + P4b

That's a nice 65a5 papeldog!

Congratulations on getting all of the 65a die pairs. All 5 of those die pairs have interesting features.

I think I see another reverse die crack at leaf 2. Are there any others?

MG, do you have any 65a5's with additional die cracks?

Yes Phil, there are 2 more die cracks on this P4b the one at leaf 2 runs down the tip of leaf 2 then down through the field into the N in ONE, and another at leaf 8 from the middle of leaf 8 to the denticale

Thanks for the detail photos of the die cracks. That is a later die state which is not yet in the Haxby catalog.

Nice find, and good eyes to catch those die cracks! They probably would be hard to see on a lower grade coin.
