Here is the 1974-D Eisenhower dollar I bought at the same time as my 1974 Ike.

Is this a DDR? And what's with the mess on the lower part of the reverse where the crater shapes are overrunning the lettering?
- About two score and seven+ years ago, I began a Lincoln cent collection. I have all, most in AU or better & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809. The latter published his "On the Origin of Species.." in 1859, the Lincoln cent debuted in 1909, and after that it just seemed like a good way to show the evolution of US coinage. Most non-nums to whom I've shown these react with the phrase, "I had no idea!" That alone shows their worth.
- I've completed MS sets of Jeffersons & MS specimens of other 5 nickels; Franklins done. Roosies mostly done. I enjoy hunting for WLH and "winged liberty" dimes.
-- If I left my early Washington quarter book at one of y'alls house, please ring me up.

I have zero experience in the series jbuck ... appears to be mid to high MS based on the photos.

Nice lustrous example for sure.

I'd say 64 as well, somewhat out of ignorance.

So, JBuck, what's the story with this coin? I still think the reverse die was messed up.
- About two score and seven+ years ago, I began a Lincoln cent collection. I have all, most in AU or better & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809.

Most non-nums to whom I've shown these react with the phrase, "I had no idea!" That alone shows their worth.

Biedercoins, I see nothing wrong with the reverse. Looks fine to me.

Okay, now I see what is going on down there! I've seen one thing and my brain has turned it into something else. I'll try to explain and see if this makes sense.

On the "ONE", the "O" has a ding at about 10:00 that is parallel to the rim itself. It is deep enough that it picks up light and alone is as prominent as the indentations that make up the edges of the moon craters. The die itself is far enough along in age (stage) that the devices - craters in this case - are moving toward the rim. [check out another IKE that it's an Early Die State strike and look at how much space there is between letters and craters] Finally, there is just enough diffusion and shallow depth of field in the photo that I saw a "piece of crater edge" overlain on the letter "O" itself. I was seeing something akin to a "nightcrawler" except in this case it was a chip that wasn't there.

As far as the DDR comment, it was the LDS and a little Machine Doubling that brought that to mind. I can't remember ever hearing of such things on a '74-D so maybe I was hoping you were giving us a new mutation!

After all this, what is the grade?
- About two score and seven+ years ago, I began a Lincoln cent collection. I have all, most in AU or better & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809. The latter published his "On the Origin of Species.." in 1859, the Lincoln cent debuted in 1909, and after that it just seemed like a good way to show the evolution of US coinage. Most non-nums to whom I've shown these react with the phrase, "I had no idea!" That alone shows their worth.

Okay, I can actually see what you were seeing. Thank you for the explanation.

I will post the grade sometime tomorrow, want to give it just a little more time.

A pair of 65's - Excellent! Do you already have graded versions of the cn-clad proof and the two silvers?

Thanks for bearing with me on that wild-chip chase

Yes. This pair makes 1974 my first complete year.
