In photo format? I’m curious to see the die progression from first strikes with it vs final strikes.

    To what denomination of coin are you referring? My first thought was nickel, but I don't see a DDO listed on CoinFacts. It appears the only major varieties recognized by PCGS are the 2 1/2 Feathers and a DDR. So unless the DDO you're referring to is from a different series with at least 2 types in 1913, or the DDO is a minor variety unrecognized by PCGS, then I'm stumped.

    The only die stage progression I have seen can be viewed looking through attributed examples on coinfacts. Late die stage has a distinct crack in the V of five that eventually creeps out of the top of the F towards the Buffalos mouth.

    Beware of several other die cracks in the same place but have a different path.
    There are 3 trick diagnostics on the real ddr that can be found on other non ddr varieties.

    This is a hard to find variety. Happy hunting.
