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.

It certainly could have both, FYI.

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 known 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.

Thanks for posting the RPM link! I like the damaged lower serif die hypothesis...it had to start sometime and would make sense. Why not perhaps towards the end of the '72 run? There are just so few examples of 72-D RPM's.

After a slew of 71-D RPM's and varieties, a few 73-D RPM's, a couple 74-D RPM's and a single 76-D RPM, the 1972-D RPM appeared to have been swallowed into the Bermuda Triangle! :shock: Finally found this one a couple of years ago.

I am extremely grateful for the follow up, your work and appreciative of your opinion. It sincerely means a lot! Having been born in Philadelphia in ‘71, the series and my collection is extremely personal to me. I’m a collector, not an opportunist. Respectfully in your opinion, where do I go from here with regards to this coin?

Just enjoy it. ANACS will probably put RPM on the slab label if that's of interest.
