came across this while CRH, tried to find a match but couldn't. Found a variety with an extra beard hair but not earlobe.

That's awfully minuscule. Maybe due to a tiny die chip/gouge?

I would say that it's not any less miniscule than some of the know varieties http://goccf.com/t/159301

Lol moxking, I literally go through a process: date to eyes to ear to LIBERTY to IGWT. Then the reverse. From reading through the errors for many of the years it's one of those things so if I see something off then I got up VV or Wexler's site or coppercoins

Very interesting! I'll contact Tanman, so he can take a look at it.

I think it's most likely die abrasion. The break in the middle of the "extra earlobe" would be incredibly unusual and hard to explain if this were hub doubling.

Thanks Tanman, do you think it's worth to send to Mr. Wiles?
