Found this on ebay about three weeks ago. Poor pictures, but thought it might be the 1893 triple 9. It wasn't but it is the other 1893 on page 337, and at EF it still is a nice find for 29 dollars.

It's still a great coin! Keep looking and you'll get what you want. I bought a TP 1893 on eBay last month, a strong VF-30 for less than fifteen U.S. Know what they look like and just keep looking.

yonton, most triple 9's for 1893 have a die crack on the obverse between DEI - Gratia

There are actually 3-4 different TP or DP '93's. I used to go through hundreds, if not thousands, looking for the different types. Whenever I saw the closely spaced digits, I always had to have a good 2nd look. We only put 1 D/P in the 2011 Charlton due to space limitations.

I have 30 DP & TP '93's and about 1/3 of them also have the 3 repunched. Here are a few of them from years ago on my binocs. By the way, I always considered the first 9 photo here to be quad-punched 9 ... count the strikes.
