One would normally expect that the quality controls relating to proof coins would prevent triple die errors from escaping into issue.

I guess the reason in this case, is that the error was sufficiently minor to escape detection. That sometimes happens.
Congratulations. Your sharp eye has helped you.

I don't know, in the back of my mind I still truly believe the mint produces error coins intentionally. Otherwise, none of us would be here looking for them.

PCGS is the best. It looks like you might have a cameo coin as well those are worth a little more. I have a DDO from the same year, mine is small date over large date. It didn't seem valuable enough to me to send in. Not many sold records on your coin but a very nice one indeed!

I don't believe this is the tripled die obverse, the doubling on IGWT doesn't look close.

It is still a nice doubled die obverse though! Good proof varieties like this are tough to find.

It is a DDO, but not the Tripled die:

Note the mintmark locations are different. Also the tripled die show double lines on all areas.

Well lets check to see if it is a good thing or not:
On the TDO:
https://www.PCGS.com/cert/30351585
PR68RD = $600.
DDO:
LD DDO FS-113 (030.6) PR66RD - $200.
https://www.PCGS.com/cert/29598718

FS-102 DDO FS-102 LD/SD = $160.
https://www.PCGS.com/cert/15545874

https://www.PCGS.com/cert/26098329
DDO FS-102 LD/SD PR66RD = $275.

So if it is not one of these listed FS numbers, the price might exceed the costs of having the coin graded. You need to find out if it is listed by a FS number first. If it is not one of the listed ones, you will just have a graded proof coin, rather than being graded as a variety.
