1971-D Friendly Eagle DDO - Nice Surprise!

Post by FS-801 » Wed Jan 08, 2020 3:47 pm

I bought this 71-D FEV on Christmas Eve, and I just received it on January 6th. I bought it because I thought there was a good chance it was a proof planchet FEV based on the seller's photos. I don't believe it is a PP now that I have it in hand, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was a DDO once I got it under the lens. The doubling on IGWT is very prominent. Whatcha guys think?

Nice score there FS-801.... very nice doubling...

There seems to be a lull in the Ike market today...
which is NOT really a bad thing if your in the BUYING zone... selling NOT so much!!! lol

There still a lot to be found out there... I believe that once April 1st gets here things will change... :-)
I think there will be a BIG shift.... just my opinion... so hang on to all your Ike's people...

Thanks! I love it when these little discoveries happen. I’m trying to decide if I want to send it in for attribution as a FEV and a DDO. That would be expensive, but I don’t think there are any graded FEVs with the additional DDO attribution on the label. I wonder if there is one in Brian’s collection.

I was really hoping for this to be a proof planchet FEV, but I’m very happy with it, nonetheless. I really dig the doubling!

Just got the big Ike book out to read over this variety, and it is the WDDO-001 with the paired DDR (two Ls in DOLLAR). Nice! :mrgreen:

FS-801...

that is great... Not sure if Brian has one that is graded FEV with the DDO-001...???

Have you went to John Wexler site to look at the pictures?? I actually have a bunch of coins
listed at his site... :-) As you may be aware... John & Tom K... worked with each other pretty
closely... Good hunting....

There is a picture of one in an ANACS holder and designated as such in the Ike book. It’s labeled as RDV-006 WDDO-001. I would prefer to have mine in a PCGS holder with “Friendly Eagle” and “DDO” on the label along with their numbers. As I said, it would be expensive to do this through PCGS, but, on the other hand, I believe it would be the only PCGS holdered Ike with this dual attribution. I think it would grade MS64, so it would only be a labor of love for me at that grade. I would be thrilled with a 65. What are your thoughts on the grade? I’m gonna think about it for a bit.

Also, one thing I didn’t mention was the die gouge marker between the T and R in trust. I learned this from the book too.

I did check out Wexler’s site, and it’s very resourceful. Finding a variety like this keeps the fire burning.

Great Find! :D

The one in the ANACS holder in the book is not mine...Maybe Andy or Rob?

I don't have a slabbed example of the FEV DDO/DDR in any holder. :oops:

I do have the WDDO-002 FEV in an ANACS "Discovery Piece" holder, where the DDO isn't as wide as the WDDO-001 and there is no DDR.

Happy Hunting!
Brian

Brian- I may send this to ANACS, but I'll have to look up their fees. I'll let you guys know. ;)
