I just received this one Saturday. It's a Wexler WDDO-002/ WDDR-001 graded MS-66 by PCGS.

Well done, and extraordinary photos picking up all the die polishing lines.

Thanks @Coinfrog. I picked up a new Kodak enlarging lens recently that Ray recommended on another site. I'm really liking it.

This one will slip right pass most collectors, there's many lesser known DDO and DDR for this year.

Have you studied this one @macmercury? The coin above is an exact match to the Wexler listing and the cherry pickers guide. The Varity Vista listing appears to be a different die stage possibly? The die file lines on the lower bust are not in the V V photo.

Edit to add - I grabbed a second example from the same seller in the same grade with the next sequential serial number. I thought that was pretty cool.

@dave700x

Not spending a lot of time lately, these eyes are getting tired looking at so many. I have been using my cheap microscope rather than my loops lately when I do find some interesting ones, which I lack self esteem to photograph them and catalog them properly. Plus working on the computer 10-12 hours in business days don't help either.

All the ones I find I have questions on a few probably have the lesser known DDO or DDR, so I haven't really studied it. At present time I am actually concentrating more on my 7070, which I find it frustrating and enjoying it at the same time.

I would have just put that one in one of my Albums. And since not FSB, it would have gone into set #3 or $4. So many of those minor errors are popping up so much lately. I've got well over 4 thousand Mercs and no time to check them all for these errors.
