    I found this earlier today and noticed he had a hang nail at the tip of his left thumb. Is this a decent find?

    I can't see from the pic that you provided
    Need full pic of both sides, and a close up of the area.
    By the way welcome to CT

    Hello Stonehenge and welcome to CT. The images are rough but I do see the tell-tail flat fat left forefinger. Need better images like Dave said. Check out every variety for your coin is clearly pictured. Hope this helps. Reed

    Thanks for the information! I'll see if I can get my phone to cooperate with me and post a few more pictures.
    I did look at each one of those varieties and didn't spot one quite like this.
    I am new to coins, but always super exciting to see something "not quite right"

    Hey, in the future, it helps to post photos as full images. It lets us zoom in a little more on them. I recommend using a 10x loupe in front of the camera of your phone. As long as you have good lighting, you'll get some great results without having to digitally zoom in and pixelate the photo.

    I think it's a plating issue near the thumb.

    Although generally a wise idea, in many cases a 2009 DDR can be identified by just a reverse photo.


    Although I still cannot clearly see the anomaly in question, there are nowhere near as many 09-D varieties as compared to the Philly mint. A quick scan through Wexler's listings doesn't suggest there are any known to him that match your written description. Still, the link is below if you'd like to check for yourself. Good luck!
