    A few months ago, I was lamenting the fact that my brother found a DDO in the wild after searching only his second mint set while I had never discovered a variety coin of any kind in all my years of coin collecting. Has the streak finally come to a close. Is this coin an RPM 1944-D/D FS-501? Please vote in the attached poll.


    Here is the photo the NGC uses for their Variety Plus page:


    As always, comments welcome.

    It seems to resemble this one on Wexler

    1944-D 5¢ WRPM-002

    Description: D/D Tilted (Rotated)

    Die Markers: Obverse: None significant. Reverse: Die gouges protrude from the lower left and the lower right of the S in PLURIBUS. A die gouge can be found between the centers of the U and S in PLURIBUS. A heavy die scratch runs through the bottoms of the U and N in UNUM.
    I think I can see the marker on the S but unsure of the others

    I had to vote "No". It just doesn't look the same to me.

    I voted no, but I do think it is an RPM still.

    This is as big as my photographic skills can make the mintmark.

    I think he is just saying you should look at that site and compare, especially since you have the coin in hand. Does it look like RPM-015?

    And I think you should check the markers on the one I posted earlier, with the new pic it looks like they are there

    Okay, so sometimes we are forced to update threads like this, and occasionally admit the we done messed up. As some of you may know, I submitted a 1944-D/D FS-501 in my last submission and it came back MS64, but that wasn't this coin, it was a second one that I found. When I was preparing my submission to NGC, I couldn't find this coin, and I figured that I misplaced it, and that eventually I would find it. Well I found it; my dumb arse submitted it as a standard 1944-D in my previous submission and it has been sitting in my "List on eBay pile" for months because I couldn't figure out where this phantom 44-D came from. Not until today when I gave up on its origin and processed the photos to list it on eBay and saw the RPM. But hey, it isn't all bad news.


    Now I have to send it back to NGC to get the variety.

    It looks every bit RPM from the way the secondary image is slanted and the primary image is fully intact.

    I took this image and copy it in my picture .
    Let start with coneca DDR-001 .
    http://varietyvista.com/04a JN DD Vol 1/DDR Detail Pages/1944DDDR001.htm

    Stage A, has no polishing done on the " US " of pluribus .
    Stage B, has a little done on the " U " but none on the " S " .
    Stage C, is where this coin would be .

    Check for the crack in the hair, with site link I posted .
    Also there no DDO, with this coin ( Stage C ) ..
