I've had many 1881's that I had ordered on Ebay that I thought would be single serif but, in-hand, they turned out not to be. I think that, at the angle the pics were taken or the lighting, it made it look like the right side of the left serif was missing, but it wasn't. Sometimes, the right side of the foot was just weakly struck, since all the Obv ('81-84")1's except one were overstruck with full serif N's or with a corrective punch. If there is anything showing on the right side of the serif left foot of both N's, it' not a SSN. With all the thousands of Vicky cents I've had or found, I've only discovered 2 of them, neither of which I still own.
