I found this today, but it is not listed in my Cherrypickers guide. Is it just so common that it is not listed? Or am I just seeing things?

Based on the description, your Merc might be DDO-004 or possibly DDO-002(which is also DDR-001) but at any rate, you definitely have a fairly strong doubled die there

Those CONECA POP's dont mean anything....

it only means that they have only had 2 submitted to them.

you have to exactly ID the DDO # if it exists (hard to tell since CONECA shows no pics of the coins or the die markers)

then check PCGS-ANACS-NGC etc...to see what their POPs are.

that might give you a clue as to how scarce a variety might be.

Yankee, here is the great part for me. I bought 1000's of silver coins years ago when I was paying $5.00 an oz for bullion and had no interest in numismatic value. I have recently become interested (mainly in varieties)and started going through them. Long story short .40-.50 cents.
