When was it reported?

"In what year was the 1916 dd buff discovered? I don’t know, but I would assume it was some years after the fact."
I'll answer it again for those who may be interested-
It was first reported in the July, 1962 issue of the "Numismatic Scrapbook" magazine, some 46 years after the fact. Here's the story. It certainly IS a hub doubled variety, i.e. a major doubled die. How the doubling on the feathers, ribbon ties, braid, neck, and chin were overlooked is a a mystery but the misconception was eventually corrected in subsequent issues. Other than the 1955/55 cent and, to a lesser degree, the 1939 "Doubled MONTICELLO" nickel and the 1934 doubled die obverse quarter, doubled dies were largely ignored except by a few (wise!) specialists.
