    I'm not seeing a split serif, but look for the die scratch: Reverse: A die scratch runs SW/NE to the right of the second O of MONTICELLO.

    Condition doesn't show the scratch. I was referencing the split serifs on LIBERTY.

    I checked the Variety DDO and none showed the split serifs, it also shows a DDR-006 Variety Vista. IS_136.jpg

    Did you look at that last link I sent you? Because I see split serifs on several of the varieties listed in Brian’s page.

    My sincere apologies, I did not. I have Variety Vista and Wexler book marked and will surly add and look at your reference. Thanks.

    I checked out Brian's page and added it to my bookmarks as it is very detailed. Upon closer inspection of this coin IS_143.jpg I discovered a die crack from the dome through the mint mark and B in PLURIBUS to the rim.

    Good find, did it help you find the right variety?

    Still working on it as I haven't found any of the pick up points for a specific variety; the split serifs on the coin are larger than examples, it is a mixed bag of several. Thanks for the help.

    Pick up point on reverse for Brian's DDO-002, there is a die gouge on top of Jefferson's head, but it is on the wrong side of center and angled the wrong way. IS_144.jpg

    Best advice I can give, is to study the coin .
    Then try to match up the doubling to what the variety site is showing for images, of their doubling .

    Then take some images of course ..........

    Using Variety Vista, it appears to be a DDO-002. IS_146.jpg IS_147.jpg
