    Spent some time poking through my 7070 today and noticed what appeared to be a MPD on my 20 cent. I know it’s not the FS 301 because the MPD is under the 8 for FS 301. It looks like the MPD is under the 7 which would make it the FS 302. The S/S is hard to see due to the condition but I can see two notches in the top serif of the S. What do you think? Also what is your opinion on the grade? I have it as VF35 with the reverse being much stronger. It has that circ cam look that is often associated with environmental damage.

    Last two photos are from a FS 302 S/S from Coinfacts.

    The MPD looks like it is in a different place, just slightly

    To my eye it is an mpd, 001, as well. the rpm in question,to my understanding they both are pretty common for the 1875 20 cent piece.

    I'm seeing a fine as for the rpm and mpd both are present the fact that the mpd is off somewhat.....as for location goes perhasp a new discovery....and again maybe not as these MPD's are quite common.
