IMHO...it would have to show more characteristics. Let’s suppose it is actually an RPM:
...without something inside the D...
...without extra metal outside the perimeter of the mintmark...,
...you have what we see in your coin. Now, everyone, and I include rpm buyers out there, will say they see a contact mark hit, or it is too minor.
Collectors see this every day and make judgment calls about the “tells” they find on coins. In doubled dies, I have found die markers but can’t confirm the doubling, usually too much wear, so that if it ever was there, circulation has erased it.
This is why everyone gets so excited when a member actually finds a confirmable variety, because it is so difficult to find in all the billions of coins out there. It is, as they say, the nature of the beast...they are out there...Spark
@thomas mozzillo ...I think you meant odds against finding a new variety...Spark
I would certainly hope so. Can we chalk this up to a typo?
It does give me hope, I just have to use "new eyes" to find them. Slightly different than the 69s or 55 or any of the other old dogs we always look for.
When I find my notes I'll post them.
Thanks, that's what I meant.
