Speaking of the 72D 1/1.....

Post by SteveP » Sat Sep 08, 2012 10:44 am

I just upgraded my PCGS Ike set by purchasing a 72D in MS66 to replace the MS65 in my set. So, as is my evolving habit, I check the coin with loops. What's this? ....a very nice example of a WDDR-001! I check the obverse and there is doubling at the 1, L and B. Unfortunately, some fade, as has been described with the obverse die state.

So then I check the MS65. This is crazy...nice example of the WDDO-001 and WDDR-001!

I have another MS65 and a MS64, so I check them as well. No go.

Anyway, nice dumb luck cherries on my part.

Two questions:
Can the the MS-66 obverse be attributed, given the fade (lack of distinct tripling on the N, etc)?
Are these coins something that can receive a DIVA sticker?

DIVA sticker? Yes.

Will they meet the criteria? Brian and Rob are probably more familiar with these than I to make a reasonable comment. I am not super familiar with markers etc. on these.

Show us some close ups!

Here's the MS65:

I'll try to post the MS66 pics tomorrow. The reverse is nearly identical, while the obverse is a harder pick-up.

Hi Steve P,
Is there any doubling to Liberty, if not this may be a new combination, I have listed Two Obverses already with that same reverse, if you would like you can send in to me for attribution, the old texts are out-dated now, much more information has come since.

Tom.

The L and B - but the spread is not much.

Steve,

I have seen from die to die depending on wear and stage and state of die can have one coin look somewhat different, I do have the equipment for this kind of work, hear is the write up I have on the IDDD site on the 1972 page, I have not posted pictures yet though, hear is my write up anyway, see if any sound like your coin obverse.

1972 D CN BS Obverse
New Coin: IDDDO-5 72-D New IDDDO-5B 72-D IDDDR-3 New IDDP-5 & IDDP-5B
IDDDO-5 - IDDDR-3 - IDDP-5 IDDDO-5B - IDDDR-3 - IDDP-5B
Cross Reference: Wexler WDDO-001/WDDR-001. Wiles Reverse DDR-001

Obverse Description: First obverse IDDDO-5 small CCW spread seen on LIBR tough to see the split serif's on the upper left serif's of LIB - easily seen on the Back leg - lower right serif on the R of liberty, the one in date is tripled on the top serif.
Second obverse IDDDO-5B DDO class II tripling on IN GOD WE TRUST and the top serif of the one in date, doubling seen on the 972 of date, CW doubling spread seen on Liberty.
