2012 D Sheild cent.

#1 Unread post by Coinhunter91 » Sun Feb 11, 2018 2:54 am

Hello, new here and hope this is the right place to ask.
I have a 2012 D sheild cent, at first I'd thought it to be a doubled die but was told its a different issue. Was hoping to get more info/ideas on whats happening and how it happens. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. Another early bird!
Nice clear images. (I'm jealous. lol: )
It certainly appears to have legitimate notching and separation on UST.
Can you please provide full obverse and reverse images.
I may be getting ahead of myself because I am no pro, you can check out John Wexlers site, doubleddies.com. Here is a link for 2012's . Nothing at all is showing up for 2012D at Variety Vista.
Possibly it is a known variety but the details on TRUST might be overlooked on his images for some reason.
(It happened with a 2017p discovery I submitted to him that he listed.)

I'm sure Wexler would list it.
Denver mint has very few modern LC varieties that it has produced.
You would be throwing a bone of hope to those collectors in the mid west and West coast if you sent it to get listed. happydance:

Thanks for the updated images.
With the die flow lines and ridge ring it looks like a mid to late die stage so there should be plenty of these out there for others to find also.
Thanks for sharing.
Were you able to find anything at Wexlers site?

Well yours would be worth more than subsequent ones because it would be the discovery coin (if John Wexler listed it on doubleddies.com .) He would not grade or encapsulate it but he would provide a letter describing his new listing number that you could use if you sent it to be encapsulated.
Fees would be $8 per coin (plus postage coming and going) I believe and he has a strict limit of five (5) coins submitted at a time.
The link I included in post #2 will take you to his site and you can find other information he provides to be able to submit coins.

Good luck and I hope you do it because it's a :winnah: and there really are very few modern varieties coming from the Denver mint.
It will give searchers out west a variety to look for. hugeeyes

Ok so ive been looking over many more cents minted withen 2010-2017 and have seen this exact "doubling effect" taking place on some.. Ken potter had told me it was not doubled but a different issue i think he said with the plating (cant remember). But I think he is correct because the more I look the more I'm finding this way. Wexler had some listed similar to this but had later removed them Is what he said.
