I can see "similarities", but 1) much clearer pic needs to really determine and 2) doubling is usually seen on other points of a coin, plus markers and a lot of other info needed.

Need clear pix of the different pickup points, say divided in 4 or 6 parts. Then it would be helpful to list the source of reference, attribution #, and where the item sold and for what. (sometimes these are really bogus sales, makes good copy for a worthless book). Lastly, what are YOU seeing and using as points of comparison. Right now, as I said, similar ain't identical. I see major die scratches on the real DDO, does that mean you're isn't a DDO or just a different die state? A lot more needs to be shown to correctly assess, particularly the Class 6's, without clear notching or separation lines.

Final point, I never get jazzed up over the "it sold for stacks o' cash" concept. Much like a difference in pricing between an MS62 and MS69, what grade/condition is the coin in. Is it a common DD (high pop) or one that was caught early and dies replaced making a very rare issue? Problem with the slight Class 6's is the.former. usually high population runs. That is why I ask for other pix, a high value has to have some meat to it, not much on IGWT there, so where is it?

For the big one from 1976 it first would need to be from the Denver mint and next the best pickup point is Liberty, not In God We Trust. Can you give us some pics of Libery from your coin

Give me more pix and a source ref and I'll take a look later to compare, not enough there to tell. you and I may look "similar" but sure aren't "identical".

One more thing, was right pix a proof? Yours ain't, couldn't be same die.

I agree with Crazyb0. We'll need much clearer pictures with nice picture comparisons.
