"Jelly?" Aw jeeze!!! Now I am gonna have to learn a new language and I don't have time for that.
1972p1do003 Die Variety Information - coppercoins.com
Actually quite common in BU rolls to get multiple of the same die since the mint bags up whatever dies are in use that day together. I got a collection dump of BU state quarters at my local bank not too long ago and got about 15 of the same doubled earlobe variety.
This happens often with RPMs where I've found a bunch of the same RPM...but also a mix of other RPMs. But usually no more than 3 different varieties. It happens, but with multiple DDOs from different dies, I have to think it was a cherrypicked roll intended to be attributed at some future point. Fun to snatch up when available!
This looks like the Master Die Doubling that occurred in 1972. It appears on P, D, and S mint specimens as it traces back to the Master Hub. It's true doubling, but it appears on over 50% of all 1972 cents minted. So it is rendered a moot point as a result, and no premium attached. It is most notable in the Ts of IGWT, but the D in GOD has that notch. That said, there are other DDOs that have a similar effect, but different. Take a second look and see what you think with the coin in hand.
