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.
Apologies. With zero (con)text in your post, I wasn't sure what exactly you were asking.
I see the split serif on Liberty. There are a few references to DDOs here:

This one has pictures for you to reference and compare:
I checked the Variety DDO and none showed the split serifs, it also shows a DDR-006 Variety Vista.
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
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.
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 ..........
Use this site to study your coin .
Much more detailed, then the others .

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