Just pulled this out of a sketchy roll. Probably only go AU but pretty sure this is the earliest die stage I've seen for one of these. Very sharp details.

Glad I could be of some sort of help. Sketchy isn't a wrong term, but I think the lot that group of rolls came from had rolls that were improperly stored, some even had mold. So that may be it but IDK.

Either way that's a great variety

Nice examnple. A sleeper(?) variety because of its famous cousin, DDO-001.
