Third High SD found in Lot purchased from recent Status International Auction.
Attached is copy of third coin and standard Perth Reverse.
Blurring beneath SD more evident and lends credence to prior comment by Mr T that Doubling.
Whether Doubling or Die Variety cannot say but cannot see how Machine Doubling
- SD is now aligned with top of Right Thumb and not the middle of the thumb
- Thickening of the fingers/claws/digits on hands and feet but not (so) evident or to same extent, if any, on the four (being those other than the thumb)of the right hand.
- The raised sections of the frill also appear thicker!!
- Number 2 and tail appear unaffected.
It is as though in doing the engraving the Engraver made some of the impressions deeper/wider and in the process bumped the SD higher.
