I'm leaning toward GFD....due to high-pressure "Fin rim" on bottom part of the reverse and unequal
areas of "muddling" of devices...(middle of reverse is weak but middle of obverse is sharp).

I could be wrong...you can always send in for error designation and put DAS on the form...if they disagree, then they will just put what they think it is on the label.

I've never found a DAS in the "wild"....only ones I have ever owned (3) were all bought already attributed.
They are quite scarce and all were pretty expensive. Some of which, are in our book. Have found loads of GFD's and STG's "in the wild".

Nice coin! :D I'd send it in to NGC (cost is more reasonable than PCGS for designating errors).

Happy Hunting!
Brian

I am not familiar with the term GFD ? Grease filled devices ?

My first thought upon sight was also grease filled die. Lots of unstruck annealing marks on the planchet which is most oftern a hallmark of that situation.

I agree with STG / GFD.
I use NGC for these, getting "struck through" on the label.
I have a set with 71, 71D, 71S SB, 72 T1, 72T2, 72T3, 74, 74D, 76D T1 (also a sintered planchet), 76 T2, 76D T2, 77, 77D, 78, 78D. Who woulda thunk that 76 T1 would be hard to find?
