1973 S Proof Eisenhower dollar. DDR Tripled die.

Post by Jim0815 »

I purchased this 1973 S proof set this morning for $11 knowing there was a DDR in there. After cracking it open I was surprised to find some of the devises are tripled. As of yet I have not been able to match this coin with any known DDR’s. Virtually every devise on this coin is doubled and in some cases tripled. I just didn’t want to flood the thread with photos. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Clad proof or silver proof?
Can you post a photo of the obverse, with imagine coned to the rim, date, mint mark and the bottom of the bust?

Tripling typically represents a true working die doubling. In the 1973S proof series (and others*), it would represent working die doubling of upline doubling.
I have a first-reported 73S CP with quadrupling and tripling on all reverse devices. Attributed by Tom Kalantzis as IDDDO-MD1 / IDDR-2 IDDP-4, also appearing in his book.

* eg, the 71S SP FS-901 king of Ike double dies, the reverse is actually tripled...IOW, large spread doubling of upline doubling.

I am sorry for not posting this but it is clad. I’ll get a couple of pics of the obverse. The 7 of the date does appear to be doubled but nothing else.

Jim - I'm sorry for the confusion created by my description of the photo I wanted to look at. I wanted a view with all of the devices included. ie the rim, date, mint mark and the bottom of the bust (including the FG - all together,

I hope this will work. One other thing that I have noticed about the obverse, IGWT shows split serifs. That may be from master die doubling but if you would like pics of those I will be happy to provide them as well.
