I have a few covers showing different alignments of the S under the D. Is this common? Some are mostly under the D as shown in the catalog but I have a couple where the S is closer to the O almost touching it.

The UPSS's 19th Century catalog currently recognizes two varieties of W1.

A good project for someone would be to get some of these differences back into the catalog.
Any Nesbitt accumulators out there with lots of free time??

Yes, there are several varieties known. See the UPSS 19th century catalog for details. Available for purchase hard copy or pdf at upss.org; follow the appropriate link for hard copy or ebook.

Added: Thomas posted the page from the UPSS catalog above.
