Greetings everyone, thanks for the add! This is my first post, so I apologize in advance for any mistakes made. I was wondering if I correctly identified a pair of ‘71-d T2 Reverse Talon Heads, each with Slingshot Die Cracks? I would appreciate any comments and insight provided and I look forward to learning more about the series and the group, cheers!

Welcome Aboard! :D
Yes, those are "Slingshot Y" die cracks on the obverse. Is it an FEV Reverse?
Check the mintmark to see if it matches RPM-011.

Happy Hunting!
Brian

No, not FEV’s. (I do have a bunch of those) I’ll look into the mint mark... never thought of checking that. Thanks for the heads up!

Cheers!

Hi again! So I’m having a bit of trouble finding a pic of a RPM-11. I own Thomas Kalantzis book, but the edition I have goes as far as RPM-9. Anywho, I did find 3 additional clashes on these coins. In addition to the Talon Head & Slingshot, they also show UDUs and Moon Lines. I didn’t realize at first that the UDUs & Moon Lines were on the these same coins and I posted them on another post (rookie mistake), which I just took down.

Below are pics of the additional clashes and mint marks.

Thanks again, cheers!
