    Nice follow up pics... Only problem is the lite reflection makes it difficult to see what's there... A work in progress... On the 3rd close up pic the hazy look is most likely due to lite reflection back into the lense... I reflect lite off a piece of white printer paper... I can adjust, bend, fold or mutilate the paper however I need to get the best lighting (I still have problems tho)... The idea is to flush the coin with lite not flood it if that makes sense???

    I can't tell for sure but more than likely the "W" took a light hit, it could be lighting or even a worn out design too. The fact that it's only one letter though, leads me to think a hit.

    I did an overlay with an image from PCGS (link from Pete above) and the nose is the same size... Since the PCGS image is not mine and I do not have permission I can not post the overlay... I think what is going on in your image is a trick of light and angle... If you have seen a full moon rising/setting it looks huge compared to when it is directly over head... It is due to the lite and angle at which we see it!!!

    The W looks like isolated MD to me??? If it were damage I would expect to see some displacement of metal in that area... If it were doubling I, since the size is fairly large, I would expect to see the same on the E and possibly the top of the hair!!!

    The top of D and W might be mostly reflection, a little ramp from die wear then the light is catching it.
