This Kennedy seems to have a doubled MM. Do you agree, and is this a known variety? PCGS lists a FS-101 variety, but does not supply any information about it. I came up empty on Variety Vista as well. Is there a good source with pictures for attributing these?

Can you post a pic looking straight down on the D ? from this angle it looks like MD, but I think there is a vertical bar inside the D !

They are pretty much straight down. The full size pics were cropped, but centered in the original photos. The second is almost straight down (I did not crop the photo). The closeup is from the same angle as the second.

I will get another photo though soon.

Looks like MD. And if the mint mark was doubled it would be called a RPM.

Exactly straight down.

I'm starting to think it is just oddly shaped.

It's a great example of Machine Doubling. You can keep it as a reference piece, if you'd like.

May I ask what a setup like that costs to put together?

Roughly $800, but it all depends on options and the camera.
