Found this going through a wheat bag. Doubling is very similar to DDO-002 but mint mark position doesn't match any of the current listed varieties, so it's looking unlisted for now. Not a bad looking coin either, so maybe I'll get this listed in the future.

Edit: after reviewing mint mark positions further thanks to makecents, I also agree this is DDO-002 and not an unlisted variety.

I studied this, both last night and this morning and kept coming back to VV's and cc's 002. I put cc's and your date/mm side by side and the flow lines are much too similar, at least to me. I finally decided that the difference in your mm and the listed, was yours was polished much more or may just be a more worn die, which gives your mm a slightly different look and even makes it appear to have a slightly more counter clockwise tilt. See what you think.

You might be right. I ruled out DDO-002 because V.V's mint mark position looked off and there wasn't a die gouge under the ear, but the die flow lines and die stage would affect how the mint mark position looks.

I agree with you, thanks for pointing that out. I'll label it as DDO-002 then.
