Just found this in a mixed EF-BU roll. Fortunately it was one of the best coins in the roll, and is an upgrade to the one in my collection.

Interestingly, in hand to the eye and loupe this thing looks totally MS-64. Under the camera's heartless lens it looks more like MS-63.

Nice one! I found a couple of the DDO-003 (of course not in high grade) a bit ago. These stronger class VI doubled dies are pretty fun to find.

Thanks! DDO-003 seems to be far more common than DDO-001. I kinda assumed this would be another 003 when I saw it and was most pleased after verifying it.
