looks like a nice one. Interesting to see MDD on a DDO at the same time.



The Key that gives it away to me is the upper left corner od the D in GOD. Your coin is MDD, not 008, no doubling on 197 or 2. The dot is above the bar of the 2 also. Your coin is DDD as well, the die flow has pulled the devices apart on it's journey outwards.(LIBERTY)

What I notice most is the thickness in the date as well as the notch in the 7 and under the bar on the L. That was what caught my eye. Iíve seen many master doubled dies before, this one brings a little extra spice to it

Rlewis, I don't think it's a 008, unless you've nailed some markers. Why I'm saying this is the difference between the 006 and 008 on the distance doubling is seen on WE and RU of TRUST. You have a VLDS coin with a lot of die abrasion and deterioration which does affect a lot of fine details. It still may be an 008 based upon the notching of the 7. LIBERTY is too far gone to get much believable out of. Consider this, and check markers on VV too.

Checks on the markers for 006 and 007 and didnít find any on my coin. I agree the coins a bit too far gone to determine a final name. I do appreciate the help though Crazyb0
