I'm going through some of my coins to sell and keep buying new ones. While doing so, I stumbled on this pretty big DDO that I never noticed before. I don't know the rarity or value but a very easy to spot DDO! The E in LIBERTY is slowly turning into a cud on this die! What do you all think?

Nice find! Very underrated variety.

I cherrypicked two of these in 2017: http://goccf.com/t/302258
One of the only Franklin half varieties I was able to find for my site: http://crdievarieties.com/doku.php?...5650ccrdo001

Very nice! Franklin varieties don't pop up often.

The problem is that it doesn't have the DDR on it. I found several on PCGS I thought I will make images of them to match up to the listed dies. None were listed a DDO's and none were matching the listed attributed dies. I wonder if there were a master die issue that year? Still working on these 4 I found and not finding any match yet.

I'm confused Coop, this one isn't supposed to have a DDR.
