After reading NumismaticsFTW's posting yesterday, I went through my 300+ Mercury duplicates and cherrypicked this one from my own collection! It's a difficult one to find, and mine was hiding right under my nose!




I wish it was in better shape, but hey, it's my only one. What do you think?

Great find!

There's tons of collectors that don't know about the D mint one.

Can't beat cherry picking your own collection.

I owe it all to NumismaticsFTW and everyone here on CCF! Without the post identifying what to look for, this coin would have remained buried in my collection. You are are all wonderful! I love CCF! Thank you all!

The lesson learned here is to take a look at less than pristine examples of this rare bird and look for indicators of this overdate that are hiding in plain sight The hidden 4 and foot of the 1 aren't something you normally look for in lower grades, but if you're lucky, now that you know, maybe more of these will turn up. The Denver mint tried to clean up the date, but remnants show they didn't get it all. Bonne chance!

Good find. Yes , this is the more difficult of the two to spot.
The P mint is fairly easy as the 1 is prominate under the 2

Correct typo

Great find. I learned from that post as well. I haven't had time to look yet. That's what CCF is all about.
