Pulled this from a roll earlier today. Obviously one of the minor Doubled Dies for this date, with the doubling shifted to the west. I'm pretty sure it's #7, but the die markers on the reverse nor the small die gash on the shoulder that are supposed to be evident on #7 show on this coin. Might I have a #4? Sure hope I do, but would like to hear some other opinions. If anybody wants further photos I will get them up for you.

I'm not sure that mine looks like that, and I don't see that telltale mark above the W in WE. I'm starting to think this might be a #4, but I am curious to see what Charles Daughtrey might think.

a die 4 coin will have die markers that are super easy to spot....on the reverse of the coin.
Coppercoins.com will have the pictures of the markers you are looking for.
The die markers are located around the "UN" of "UNITED"

You got #007...too bad, but still a nice find !
Always remember to concentrate on the variety itself, not the markers as they change with the die state.

I took a closer look at it this morning when I got home from work. I was so thrilled to think that I had a chance at one that when I originally looked at coppercoins.com I didn't look at enough photos of #4 to look for the markers that JoeyZ76 pointed out above. None of them are present, so it is obviously a #7. The search goes on!

That is still pretty cool to find a 1972 DDO, even if it is just a # 7. I've looked through over a thousand 1972 cents I've found in circulation and never found a single one of any of the DDOs listed.
