Picked this one up a few weeks back, online, with what looked to be a spread on the nostril. Once in hand, I also noted what looked to be Class IV doubling to the knot above the braid, and eyelid as well (the nostril having the largest spread). I just received word back from James Wiles who confirmed my suspicions and will be listed as a new DDO for that year. This one exhibits class IV and VIII doubling . There is one other (known) DDO this year being the 1914/3, which also had a light spread to the eyelid and nostril.

Will eventually be listed in Variety Vista, Wiles recognizing it as: VDDO-002, 2-O-IV+VIII, stage B, MDS.

If you find one, feel free to post to this thread! Would love to see other examples, and really curious what other die states will pop up in time.

I'll have to take your word for it about the doubling.
It's certainly not anything I would have spotted.

Congrats on the Discovery piece.

Congratulations on your find. Finding a new variety documented in a reference work is a great numismatic milestone. I also am baffled by these varieties that are so difficult to distinguish from the original design.

Thank you all! Once you've stared at the same design, who knows how many thousands of times, the variances stand out. In the grand scheme of DDO's, it's certainly minor, but a bit more dramatic for us Buffalo fanatics

Congratulations on the find.

I'm going to take your word on the doubled die - there is no way I would have seen it.

Really cool and amazing find, thanks so much for sharing the great pictures. Really sharp eyes to pick this out from most online picture quality and gives hope that there are always new things to be discovered. Even for a date that has been scrutinized so closely as this one because of the overdate.
