I have been working my way through a bag of wheaties and found a really nice 1936P DDO type 2 today. This is probably the nicest variety I have found, as the condition is fairly solid for a "in the wild" coin. They are still out there

OMG what a peach! I have seen too many how do the French say phoo phoo. Your coin is the best one that's been on in awhile a salute too you. That baby's MS for sure. Which TPG are you having it slabbed by?

I found a 1955 doubled eye Lincoln, a 1944 D DDO,and a doubled eye steel cent in 100 rolls from a dealer but nothing sweet as your 36. Its nice to see there still hiding in the wild.

That date looks like a pastry chef laid it down twice with icing.

Excellent find! It is in MS condition, no doubt about it. I still haven't found this one yet CRH. Make sure to put it in a 2x2 flip and be careful handling the coin as you don't want to fingerprint it.

It needs to be put in an Air-Tite holder ASAP.It is too good for a 2x2 flip,IMHO.

Thanks for all the feedback! I did order abother bottle of Verdi-Care, as I can't seem to locate my other bottle after a recent move. I usually do not send coins off to TPG's, but I am considering getting the coin slabbed for preservation purposes. Which TPG would you all suggest?
