First find of the evening turns out to be a bomber. This is a nice upgrade to the one I had, and just pulled it out of a roll. Much of the wonkiness of the reverse seems to have been created by errant feeder fingers, which is distracting, but I'll take an MS example of this one any day.

Great find! Congrats.
That doubling is easily visible on the full reverse shot.
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups. We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

I have to admit, this made me laugh out loud (in a good way). I think this word needs to be added to the Numismatic Glossary. Very nice find TB, I love it!!

I like that.

Always nice to find a DDR that's not the standard class 2 or 6.

Thanks all! Been looking for one of these in good shape for a while and there it was. Sadly it was the only one in the roll, but one is better than zero.

Great find TB. Always great to see what a BU roll could have. Maybe I'll get the courage to try a few one day.
