DD error on Wheat?...

#1 Unread post by typeviic » Thu Feb 27, 2020 9:19 am

I have what seems to be a DD error on a 1943-S, Steel Wheat on the date and mint mark. Zinc coating is complete w/no rust or wear. Think this is a good specimen to send to NGC or ANACS?

We can't tell you if a coin is worth sending off for grading when you can see the entire coin, must also first determine if it's actually a variety. So you don't put the cart before the horse.
