    So I was looking through my mini hoard and looked at this slabbed cent again with a 5 power loop and saw doubling. Got out the more powerful lens and sure enough, appears to be Coneca 002 and CPG 001 RPM. Has the die scratches Pups for stage a. Can even see the southwest die scratch from the tip of the 9 in my photo. All the other die scratches for obverse and reverse Stage A are present in hand. Polish_20201026_204155541.jpg

    Not bad for my 3,000th post! :cigar:

    Thanks. I guess the question really might be does the TPG look for these or is this a miss by the submitter? I bought it slabbed for slightly less than the number on the sticker.

    I believe - and I could be wrong - if this was submitted to PCGS and the person sending it did not check the 'Variety Attribution' checkbox, then PCGS wouldn't identify it as RPM.

    I'm no expert; certainly looks like doubling to me.

    It matches FS 503, but I think FS 502 is the more valuable one and FS 507 is really valuable. But still a cool find, regardless.

    I do know from experience that if you send something for a reholder to PCGS, you can tag on Variety Attribution. For example, I'd sent my Bust half to get reholdered recently and had Overton number added on for ~$9.

    Definitely not worth sending in solely to get this attribution, but if you were planning on sending a few other slabs for reholdering, might be worthwhile to consider.

    Edit - reholder service is significantly cheaper than regrade service. Even reholder + variety < regrade.

    I would send it here https://www.varslab.com/
    PS I have and it works out well
    Also PCGS & NGC charge you for extra and you must request they check it for the variety...also no money back if isn't ID

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes? Supporter

    "Variety Attribution" is an extra service that you have to pay for. And it's not cheap. The submitter may have missed it, or they may have just decided it isn't worth it for a minor RPM.

    The cost of submitting and variety attribution would be three times what you paid for the coin!

    When they actually have to think they charge you extra.
