    Looks like a die clash at Abe's throat. I see no other evidence. Curious about Liberty. All the letters seem to have notching. Lou Obverse.jpg Reverse.jpg

    Agree with clash. The rest is not notching, just battered LIBERTY and circulation wear. Worn spots on left wheat ear/reverse. AU50-53, imo…Spark

    Nice clash. Liberty is damaged. Minor wear and circulation but nice.

    I agree with die deterioration and circulation wear. Not doubled die :meh:

    DDO 003 yes it is ;) stage B I've hunted way to many over the years. One needs to back up their call with" facts "before they advise! I had 10 Red and red brown ms 64 & 65 1955 DDO 002, at that time I was selling them at $350/$500 each. NGC graded.
    Nice find Lou all pups are there....esspecially the clash, split serifs, and other markers.

    Is it strange that I clicked on this thread in "Recent Topics" expecting to see something like:

    I had just rolled out of bed..... hopefully that's the problem! :facepalm:

    Whoa, Thanks Paddy54. I'll have to pour over it to see the markers and understand it all, but thank you so much - hey I finally found something cool. Lou

    Nice eye to find that indicator of a clash. Too bad about the finger prints.
