There are pages and pages of 2005 DDR's on Wexler. How common are these?

They are common, I have a bunch of them in different years and mint marks. I call them bar on column. Yours is BOC 7 and large enough to keep.Use the search box,upper left of page for more info.

Appreciate your responses.

Please help me understand how common "They are common" is. Less than 1% of the total minted, less than 2%, 5%, 10 %?

Maybe someone with @silvosi's voluminous expertise can help with this.

What does "common" mean?

Thanks.

just think of it as a supply and demand. If all the seasoned collectors has found so many of these they do not want them any more and/or there so many for sale with very little value. Then in my opinion it is common.

Thanks for the feedback #oddguy, it is really appreciated. I'm more interested in comparative and true uniqueness. Like artwork, values of coins, is amazingly subjective and clearly not intrinsic. What you and I think is aesthetically pleasing may not be our brothers/sisters cup of tea.

I quit looking after 103 DDR's. To me those are relatively common.

Unfortunately, there isn't going to be a common definition of "common" for the same reason that there's no common definition of "aesthetically pleasing".

However, as oxymoronic as it sounds, there are common rare coins. With almost 300 different DDR's documented for the 2000-2008 Lincoln Cents they appear to qualify as "common" varieties by most numismatic standards.

Still cool to find and collect, though.

Well said HGK3. It does sound oxymoronic - a rare common coin. It is the purpose of the question from a noob. Thank you for the response.
