Found this one in a lot of 20 "dateless" Buffalo nickels I got for $3. Only 5 of the 20 were actually dateless, most were partial dates and still identifiable.

This very-low grade 1920-S may have a doubled nose.

Because of the condition and how small the doubling is, if it is doubling, it is extremely difficult to say for sure if it's a DDO.

I'm considering posting this one on my site as an *unconfirmed* CRDO-001 and sending it to Wexler or Wiles somewhere down the line.

Thoughts? Opinions?

In my opinion, I'd say so! I can't think of anything else that could of caused it.
