Another find

#1 Unread post by claudewill1 » Thu Jul 30, 2020 9:59 pm

In June I was hunting through a bag for 2500 wheat cents which I won off usauctiononline.com. I find what I believed to be a double die, I sent it off to ANACS with some other coins since they had a special going for 10 coins for 109 free shipping plus the fee to have it verified, and the cent came back as A 1941-P DDO FS-102 DIE 2. I will share some pictures when I get it back.

Thank you for all your videos Daniel, they inspired me to put in more time and effort to learn what to look for to find varieties.

Nice find Claude - but as a future note - if you post pictures here before sending in a coin, it could save you some money as we could likely ID it for you. Looking forward to seeing the pics!

I should be getting that coin a long with some others back next week. Even though the DDO isn't that high of a grade, it will still be fun for me to have it graded and encapsulated for my personal collection. It is one of those things I will hold onto. It kind of reminds me of the first bass I caught when I was a kid back in the 90s that my parents had mounted and I still have to this day. It will be good to have a graded example in hand of what a DDO for 1941 looks like for future purposes. I have bags of wheat cents dated from 1909-1919, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s which I need to go through and check at some point.

@Earle42 I actually wanted to get the coin graded anyways since it was my first double die find and ANACS had a special going that I was already planning to submit coins for. I knew it was a double die before I sent it off, the verification was just to attribute it on the holder. Though I didn't know exactly which DDO it was. I think the coin will get back to me this coming week, then I will be able to provide pictures.

Here are some pics I've taken so far, I will try to get more of the doubled areas later that might be a bit better. I have been busy with a job interview this morning and then I have an appointment with a orthopedic surgeon this afternoon.

For stuff like this I just use ANACS whenever they have their 10 for 107$ deal.
