EDS = Early Die State basically a newer or new die
MDS = Mid Die State, this will show more markers do to more wear. You may find them where a Die Break has accrued, or die Chips.
LDS = Late Die Stage. The Die is very close to end in which it will be used. You may find a lot more Die Deterioration , Die Cracks, Die chips. although all of these could
be used as Die Markers for the coin, they could at the same time hurt to see any true Doubled Dies. JMO. There's may correct some of what just said.


As always all other opinion are welcome
