    Because I think this be an earlier die stage then the one pictured in the variety listing here:

    http://www.varietyvista.com/01b LC Doubled Dies Vol 2/1984PDDR001.htm

    I've included side by sides of the listing with my coin for DD verification since there are no markers because only MDS has been submitted. I did find some nice corresponding spots though! I included pictures of those as well.

    I have also included some examples of where there appears to be evidence of different die stages.

    Could the coin I found be a different die stage? Would that account for clearer spread/ separation lines? The orientation and location of the spread/ separation aligns so well I can't imagine it being a different variety. Would die stage account for this?

    And on a related, albeit less informational note, this is the first DD I've ever found! It is my baby now hahaha. I want to thank @Rick Stachowski for all his help!!! I learned so much! Thanks for pushing in the right direction :)

    @Rick Stachowski is my go-to expert for die stages. Whoops, on closer read, I see he already helped you. If he can't help you, I doubt anyone can. Other than @Fred Weinberg , of course.

    Did an overlay on what I'm pretty sure is a die gouge. Looks the same. And a few of the side by sides show difference in detoriation flow and coneca coin has die chips, mine does not. Theirs is listed as LDS. Could mine be MDS? Do you think it's worth submitting to James Wiles?
