I've been getting into looking on eBay for Cherrypickers' Guide varieties, and I found a half dime listing that looked like it could be a rare repunched date. I took the chance for $30 and it came in the mail today. It is still hard to tell for sure if it is FS-301 since the coin isn't it great shape and the only picture of the variety I could find is the one in the guide. What do you think?

Looks interesting, hard to tell what's above the 4 on the date.

Do you see any sign of the RPD above it?

I will be seeing Bill Fivaz in a week or so.
Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you're stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there's nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while there's a peanut butter cup or an English toffee. But they're gone too fast and the taste is... fleeting. So, you end up with nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and teeth-shattering nuts. And if you're desperate enough to eat those, all you got left is an empty box filled with useless brown paper wrappers.

Nice find and it looks like the FS-301 from the pictures. Hope it turns out to be the one. Good job!

I'm considering sending this to NGC since it is listed in variety plus. If this does get graded, wouldn't it be the first graded example of this variety?

Got it graded by NGC! I made a You vs. NGC post about it. Will post the grade there tomorrow.

However, NGC did not label the variety. They claimed the coin was too dirty to attribute.
