I'm hoping these images are good enough. Looks like doubling in TWO and some markings in the 2's. (appears to be an eyelash captured in the close up, bottom of the O in TWO, sorry)

No, although it might be a small plate flaw. It also might be that some foreign matter got on the plate and it is a one time occurrence.

Was hoping this pic might show the O better. Also the line between the W and the T. I really need to get a new scanner.

That is a much better image, although a still bigger one would help. On this image it looks like a somewhat worn version of the T15, visible in the word TWO and at least the bottom circle is doubled into the numeral.

Sorry revcollector. Was going to wait and post this after I was able to scan it. Been using the camera for posting other items, couldn't help trying this.

I darkened up your image to see a little better but I see no signs of a double transferr. Likely what you are seeing is sloppy printing and over inking. These were printed up relatively quick and Q&A wasn't exactly top notch. Nice looking stamp though.

No, that is a recognized plate variety. If you look carefully at the O of two, you will see a faint second impression just below it running through the middle ofg the darker O. There is also a line running parallel to the T and the arc of color in the 2 is doubling of the circle surrounding the 2. As I said before, this is a worn late state of the plate, so it is not as visible as it once was.

My notes indicate this is Plate A2 position 155 late state. Earlier state also shows in "CENTS" and lower right "2".

Looks similar to one of the DTs on my reference page, unlisted in Scott:

Thanks everyone for responding. I feel I did a diservice by not waiting until I could scan this, instead of using the camera. I appreciate everyones time.

I think revcollector hit on it and lackemacher nailed it down.
When I went on revenuecollectors site I took notice of the same stamp he has posted above. It seems to be a faint version of that issue.
It's the only one I've found, so it's earning a good spot, in my meager collection.
