Go Figure !

Discussion in 'Error Coins' started by Michael Bromiley, Jan 21, 2019.

  1. OK so I have been looking through coins the last two and a half months, I calculated that I have gone through 16-17 thousand coins. I have found a coupe of interesting ones , like a 2000 Wide AM, and a really nice 1960 D. But I have had difficultly identifying doubled die errors. I really have been looking to find one and get it OK'd by the onliners. Well I did it !! Just found a 1972 DDO, I think a type 001, Great !!!
    Now for the down side, Apparently it looks like someone has intentionally defaced the coin. I can only surmise that a really ticked off significant other made the statement
    "I'll show you!!" and took a needle or knife to the coin. OH well, I did find one !
    I wonder if someone would like to tell others that they have one of these coveted coins in their collection for 10 or 20 bucks - Just don't show it to anyone.
    Hope you are having a great MLK day !
    Mike

    That is called "Road Rash". We see them all of the time!

    I am worlds first to admit I am not an errors guy. But I wanted to watch this thread for my own education. I fully agree that road rash is the criminal here. But take a second look at his blow up of the word "Trust"..... You think road rash could impose that perfect of a shadow on the wording?

    It is a 72 DDO. Just not DDO 001. Take a look at my post again. I posted links to two different DDO's. 001 and 003...which does OP's coin look more like?

    003 look like it. Too bad about the time spent in the parking lot.

    Yes, I saw the doubling, but that is not what I was responding to. I was merely trying to educate the OP about road rash.

    The part of his message that shows underlined and blue are the links he provided. Just click on the blue wording..... First response to your question.

    The -001 is of course the one the books and youtubers use to get people to check tens of thousands of coins and of course their views and book sales. Honestly , I have only found 2 DDs of my lincoln collection through looking. To me it is cheaper to use my time working , even when I was young, and spend my extra money on coins others had found. I would never expect to find such in rolls except maybe salted ones, they just do not realistically exist. Learn the diagnostics and understand the processes and then hunt for them in coin shows, coin clubs, even eBay is useful if you have a high definition screen and KNOW exactly what to look for. I have bought 1917 DDO on ebay for low price because there is a long list of them for sale uncertified, but maybe only 1 or 2 are real DDO. Knowledge is the most valuable thing one can have when adding coins ( and this forum is loaded, some nice, some terse, but if it is not accurate it will be called. IMO, Jim

    And later ( 2003) This one , again for about 10 hrs of overload pay ( more $$ than above and luckily a higher pay rate :) as a part -timer retired, my rate is lower, so I have cut back, too many hobbies. Jim
