Sorry for the delay. Maybe these photos will be a little better. Still need a better camera.

I would need to see this firsthand, to make a proper attribution here
...... keep in mind, online image attribution using photos,....... is really a "No No"!

Not to doubt or mistrust you, but I'm new at this and dont know who to trust. I would love for you to examine it personally .you can understand my concern.I would hate to read about Paul discovering the first double ear D mint.please don't get me wrong, I have no reason to not trust you, but I dont know anything about you.I also know that without your advice and help that my possible discovery will stay undiscovered. Quit a delima. What do you do for a living if you dont mind me asking.

Sorry,I really hope I didn't offend you. Thanks for all your advice I am just trying to learn how to determine what is an authentic error and what might be in my imagination.I have never had a coin graded, so I have a lot to learn about the process. Thanks again for your help.

I do understand about the photography. Its almost impossible to capture in a photo, what you see with your eyes.

You cannot offend me.....
I have been doing this since 1970.....
I can say with confidence that "I have pretty much seen it all"...

:eureka:
If I have a properly imaged coin that I believe may be a variety, I will tell the poster that I would like to view it personally.
