    I found this to be interesting but I may just toss it back into the pond. What do you think?

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    From your post it appears that you know it's not the valuable DDO. Just mechanical doubling. No added value. it looks like it's in nice shape, so nothing wrong with saving it, or spending it

    Growing up as a collector in the east, finding an S mint coin was always special, so I would keep it for that reason.

    Before you throw it back into the pond, use a Dremel tool with a small burr tip and etch into the coin, "It is not a DDO!" ~ Chris

    It's only worth a cent but if it's that nice that you need to ask us you should just keep it.

    Leave it to your heirs to figure out keep them guessing. You could rest happy knowing you left them something, yeah!

    That is real machine doubling, first 69 -S I've seen that is this bad.

    I purchased an entire collection from and estate sale auction here in Arkansas. It ended up being four large Rubbermaid tubs filled to the lid. I'll be busy for a while.

    Stick around here for a few years. You'll see a lot of them. ~ Chris

    I miss my stereoscope, these usb scopes just don't have the same clarity IMO.

    That's known as a misaligned die, not a true off center

    I have a fondness for San Fran mintmarks, so I'd keep it, but that's just me.

    Cheech9712 Every thing is a guess

    I only have found maybe 5 69’s in a few years. I would keep it. Plus it’s better then any of mine

    I agree. It’s eye candy.
