RPM or not RPM on this ‘72-D? Please?

Post by Slank » Wed Dec 26, 2018 9:24 pm

Greetings everyone from a newbie. Please, any thoughts or opinions on this MM? Could this be considered a Rmp? I look forward to hearing back from the community.
Thank you

At first, I thought machine doubling from the first picture alone, but then I saw the others. However, we'll need much clearer shots of the mint mark to confirm.

I am leaning towards a "no" on this one. Would have to see in-hand to be sure.
That is a very tough year for RPM Ikes. I have know of only one RPM for the 72-D.

Happy Hunting &
Happy New Year!

Just an observation: There is a known damaged MM punch that is known for 1973, which gives the appearance of a split lower serif on the D. If you scroll down here you'll see what I am referring to.

http://doubleddie.com/1217040.html

That style of D was used from 1971-1978. It is entirely possible that the punch was damaged before 1973, but hasn't been reported or noticed. Or, it could have been damaged at the end of 1972 and may have only been used on one or very few working dies. I'm just brainstorming and sharing the info. It could also be an RPM. There is a definite notch on the lower serif.
