Re: FS-106?

Here is a properly attributed FS-106. Click on the coin and use the magnification by adjusting to 95%. This allows one to get a good CLOSE-UP look at the diagnostics of an actual FS-106 :shock:

Besides the mintmark being abnormally close to the bottom of the Ike (about 1/2 the length of the S), note the notches on the G and the T are more towards the right corners of the G and the T, than the coin you posted.

The notch on the original post has the G notch almost in the center of the G and the T is much further away from the corner of the T. Comes from the same Family 8 but, in my mind, has much more significant doubling than the FS-106.

I've found very few of these and consider them a better "Cherry Pick" than an actual FS-106.

Happy Hunting!
