I'll be out caving for a couple days and figured to post a few of the things I've picked up in the last couple days.

All things considered, this DDO is quite a nice one, and far more rare than the big one for this date. Always happy when I find one of these, and this one was in a DANSCO album I bought.

An excellent example in great shape.

I suspect a lot of people were so focussed on looking for it's beefier brother (DDO-001) back in the day they looked right past these DDO-002's.
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups.
We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

I have surfaced from the batcave after a ten-hour underground adventure.

Thanks for all the great comments on this one! I've found a couple examples of this die but it remains very, very elusive and almost never in MS condition.
