Not so sure. Bottom serif looks like D/D and left side of the D looks like the 1951-D/S Centered. What do ya'll think. I know it's 99% a D/D but wanted ya'lls opinions.

My best finds: 1999-WAM:http://goccf.com/t/332161 1988-RDV-6:http://goccf.com/t/335954#2873459 1986-Off-center: http://goccf.com/t/335952

Yar, without looking at wexler to confirm anything, looks like D/D west.
1. I'm no expert but I'll give my two cents.

2.My favorite coin so far: 1913 Buffalo nickel matte proof type II reverse

Lighting makes this difficult to evaluate.

I don't think it's a d/s...however that curve is interesting. Though I think it's too big for an S mintmark

Very interesting!
A quite well searched year for a significant variety to pop up but a little food for thought ...
This is my 1953-D/ inverted D quarter.

Looks similar to Grape's, but his lacks that diagonal feature inside the D.

Similar, but that long (apparently raised) diagonal area inside the D on stoneman's example is not present here, so it must be something different.

Interesting that I had never noted the flat top of the inside of the D on my quarter D/inverted D . What I saw as a confirmation of the inverted D was the inverted serifs to the east.
GC , you definitely have a tilted rpm there and more detailed study of your coin by an attributor would probably be needed to rule out or in an inverted D.

I do see something, could be nothing more than a stain , to the northeast that would be where a serif could be.

Just for discussion purposes, could you have two different things going on here?

What catches my eye is the die crack running from the tip of the first "5" through the mint mark to the front of the portrait.

That's roughly the line followed by several of the IDBs in the dates during this era. I have noted elsewhere that most of the IDBs in dates involve two key design elements: curved numerals and a mint mark. My theory is that the cold-punched mint mark and curved designs create stress points as the dies wear, eventually resulting in chips, then IDBs. In that light, could the blob to the west of the upright of the primary mint mark be a die chip, rather than residue from a stray punch?

If so, could you have a recognized RPM and the very early stages of a potential IDB? (No listed IDB exists for the date area of a 1955-D, so most likely the break would have remained minor or would have been discovered before becoming an IDB.)

Again, I'm not wedded to this idea, but just tossed it out there to spur some discussion.
