I have cherried a few of these, so, I'm going on my past experience. I give this one a 50/50 chance. LOL I have included pics of the MM. It looks real close. Whenever I see what looks like the upright of the 7, I go for it. The top of the 8 isn't as flat as I'd like, but, what the heck. It was in the same auction as the 30-S 2 feather, so, at least I saved on shipping.

From these images, I will say it's likely not the overdate. Like you mentioned, one thing I look for on this variety is the top of the 8 being straight across horizontally because of the underlying 7. On your example, you can see the normal curved top of the 8, so just off of that I'm going to lean towards no. Hopefully I'll be proven wrong once it comes in! I'm enjoying all the two feather posts here too, gives people a reason to come over to the classic variety section and there's usually very little traffic in this category.

Would love to see some clearer pix on it. Is there anything left of the die crack across the cheek beginning at the braid knot?

Much sharper close-up of the date needed.

I would also lean towards No as well. With the wear shown, I would expect to see more flatness to the top of the 8. I do however see what appears (key word) to be a partially filled lower loop of the 8 from the tail of the 7. Likely circulation wear. Biggest factor for me leaning no is the MM does not look like a match to me. This one appears too vertical, should be slightly slanted.

That's said, still rooting for you!!

Hope it is, but at least you might get the 2F.

In the right curve of the hair directly above the knot, there should be a short die gouge. I just can't tell from this picture if the gouge exists.

Condition is so poor I'd think even if it was one, so bad of condition would still make it worthless.

I'd have to respectfully disagree. Even in AG and even AG Details these sell in the hundreds. That said, I'm still leaning towards this not being the 18/7.
