NGC attributers are pretty good. They are probably right when they tell you it is not a Doubled die.
Just because you read about the 1917 varieties doesn't mean you have one. Worn die strikes can occur on all years which cause die deterioration doubling.
Well I would have thought they would have read the Cherry pickers guide hell I would have figured someone over there wrote it
I am going to have to work on getting some good pics
Only pictures can help in attribution. If you are ok with this then crack the slab open and show it.
True however some of my crappy 1917s are really deteriorated are they saying the detiereration is in the coin or from the die?
You have no idea how many times I have wanted to
I never really considered that. I will try and post some good shots of the coin
I never really considered that . I will try and shoot some good pics of the coin. I have to break away at present but I will be back. Thanks
Here is a PCGS MS64+ where the worn reverse die gives the coin the appearance of being well circulated.
can you show a picture of the slab label?
I've taken this remark directly from the "Description" in the CPG:
"The earliest die state specimens will exhibit slight doubling on the RTY of LIBERTY."
There were 196,429,785 coins struck at the Philly Mint in 1917. How many dies do you think were used to strike all of those coins? Just because the CPG refers to "early die state specimens", it does not mean that every coin struck on a new die is one of the DDO varieties.
Get your facts straight.
Now, you are bordering on stupidity. The original authors of the CPG are Bill Fivaz and J.T. Stanton (RIP, J.T.) Don't you know who they are?
I can scan rapidly, and I only look at the date. The most prominent doubling is in the top bar of the 7, it is thicker at the joining than the vertical of the 7. The 1's and the inner curl of the 9 usually show some notching even in VG, if it is at least VF, undamaged in the date, one should be able to see most of the key points.
By the way, unslabbed '17 DDO are about 1/500 on Ebay, rest are MD at best.
I was being sarcastic on that statement
I can accept that they were referring to the die and not the coin it but the written description wasn't delivered very clear
Separate names with a comma.
