72-SP DDO/DDR + MDD?

Post by Prime Mover » Sun Apr 20, 2014 11:18 pm

So I got this 72-SP in with the other coin (already PCGS slabbed), and put it under the scope checking for the FS-101. The coin shows DDO/DDR, with notching in all the key areas, but doesn't seem to be a 101 (I think). But also I see what looks like pretty good MDD on the left side of all IGWT, date, and some of LIBERTY on the OBV, however none of the MDD appears on the REV.

There is also what appears to be the die scratch in the ear, but also a die gouge on the ear lobe. Take a look and let me know what you think, and let me know if you want to see pictures of anywhere else on the coin.

First, the ear scratch/gouge:

Next first parts of IGWT:

The R in LIBERTY is odd, with the leg having some MDD, but it flows back into the bottom of the serif:

The 9 in the date:

And finally the REV, with the parts of DOLLAR showing the doubling, but no MDD:

There's a LOT of doubled 72S out there - very common. I can't really tell from your photos what you have; too much glare of just a late dies state. However, for an FS-101 attribution, in general you should see clear cut tripling evident on the bottom of the I & N of IN , G of GOD, and T & R in TRUST.

I agree, it is very hard to tell based on the photos. If the details of the notching are really that far gone, it might not be attributable.

I'd agree, it doesn't really show the triple notching well enough. I was more interested in the MDD part of it. BTW, this appears to be in the LDS/VLDS realm, here's a pic of the separation in "WE", you can see it's pretty far so it's very possible that the die wear is causing most of the markers to not show.
