How weird is it that I searched a die chip similar to mine and ended up finding two others that are extremely similar? Ones in Germany, how cool! Is this odd to have three so similar?

There are likely dozens if not hundreds or thousands of dimes with this same die chip in various stages of progression. What is a little unusual is for you to have found multiple examples in such disparate places, especially considering it doesn't have a well-acknowledged name like "Hornet's Next".

I especially like that the die chip has started to involve the date. This is worth saving in a 2x2.
