Trying to determine if this is a non-shoulder fold, near leaf and if possible, the quality. Added 2 additional images.

Someone's gonna say it, so it may as well be me. Can you try for some clearer shots? Fairly blurry.

You beat me to it Wally,
I was just going to say we need a clearer photo of the DEI
It is definitely a Far Leaf though.
Typo on my part should say "Near Leaf"

You can see the shoulder fold (it's like an impression that a bra strap would make, if not the whole strap. Photos are blurry, but I'll say a vf-20 or 30 that's led a tough life.

Looks like a near leaf to me; look how close the tip of the 9 is to the denticles

It is a shoulder fold obverse.

The vertical shaft of the letter E in DEI lines up to a denticle. That's another easy marker for a Shoulder Fold when the photos are blurry.
