Huh, looks more like Die Deterioration!

Oh, by the way – the book I gave you for Christmas has to be returned to the library next week.

Thanks Mark, maybe, I'm not sure. A few more opinions might help.

Not too sure on this one etheir. It doesn't look like DDD to me at all. If you wanted to CoinMasters, maybe send pictures to John Wexler and see what he thinks. Possibly send it in to get it attributed. That's my opinion.

The obverse is mostly DDD, the letters weird out closer to the rim, stretching and mushy looking IGWT, notice how LIBERTY near die edge is sheared off, the outside circumference tapering (grinding down of cylinder) is a VLDS die. Reverse die as well, look at the metal flow and letter curl near edge, that's at least an LDS with deterioration

Thanks EandV, I'd only send it in if I thought I had a major error.
Thank you too Crazyb0. I agree the dies had seen better days, My pics of the armpit don't really show how strong it is, I guess I'm gonna need another opinion.

My gut feeling is late die state with some added die abrasion wear in the area in question. That said wait for an expert or allow more time for research. Thanks, Doug.

You're welcome CoinMasters. It is in a VLDS like the others said. I try my best with my opinions I give, but there are more experienced members on CCF that can give you a way better opinion than me. We should try getting Coop involved for this one. :)

Thanks Halo1st, you are the second opinion for wear on the die without a DD. Of course I think all my coins are Doubled Dies, but now it's 2 to 1 against. I'll go with that unless someone sways the count.
Thanks EandV, I agree the die is worn, was hoping it was a worn DD. Yes it would be good if Coop weighed in, he's a 99%er. A solid declaration from him is equivalent to 12 normal people votes.

Lol, that's so true about Coop. Hopefully, he'll weight in on this one and give you the best answer you can ever get. He's 99 perfect right most of the time. :)

The area in question doesn't seem to be an area where a clash would cause anything. But I feel it is from die polishing that was concentrated on that area. I searched several example on PCGS and found that the later die state show this. (Same as the coin I used) There was also a lot of MD on different examples of graded examples, but I feel it wasn't the cause of this mark on the OP's coin. More of an issue of isolated polishing that to the field down lower on this area leaving a raised area.

Thank you Coop, as always you the man. You say it's not a DD, that seals it for me. Without the clash it's hard to figure why they'd polish it, I think it's also a wear point. Either way I guess it's safe to say it's an Abraded Die.
