I don’t think so
Correct, I have been trying for one of these forever, It's the closest I will ever be to owning a 56.
A sweet Snow 1 ?
I have collected copper/bronze most of my life and I am woefully ignorant in the world of nickel, silver and gold. I have been reading and learning in my short time here at CT
I like the challenge of identifying a coin and I have good references for IHC's and Lrg.Cents and from what I can see of the 1906 I can't put a reference number on it. It probably would be a good idea if posters made sure their photos clearly show the identifiers for the variety and maybe give a heads up if it is a relatively new find so that we know that our older books ect. won't have the updated material. It would also be nice if the poster would check back in a reasonable amount of time and correct any false Id's or if the coin has stumped the viewers, Id it for us. Personally I am looking to learning about coins outside my comfort zone. Also this thread won't be any fun if someone thinks it is funny to post a coin that isn't a variety.
O-101, fairly early die state?
I think I see the "Morse code" on the reverse, but maybe I'm all wet.
Sounds like a good idea. Maybe add a quick explanation of the variety.
Hoky77 nailed it. Snow-1, CPG FS-101
It's a DDO with a reverse off center clash. This image shows it better.
101 is correct. The prime die state with no obverse die crack at the date is considered R-7. (approximately 4-12 known examples)
1900-O DMPL these are incredibly tough to find in DMPL.
NCS & NGC then also CAC. I no longer own it
