Been too busy to really search much the last two days, but pulled out a 1968-D roll just now and it was a winner. Just one of these in there, and it's got that scratch on the obverse, but boy will I take one of these any day.

Thanks all! Yeah, finding stuff because that big lot of rolls I bought has had some dandies in it. I leave for my next amazing bat and cave adventure on Monday so trying to get through all those rolls and have things kind of tidied up before I head off and risk life and limb in Costa Rica.

Nice find! Don't think that would be to easy to spot on circulated stuff unless in decent condition. Enjoy the trip!

Congratulations on this one. I am wondering do you use a microscope to get the magnified pictures?

Jlam, yes I use a microscope for those close ups. Too many things are too small on coins to try and work with a camera macro lens, and a scope is pretty much the way to go.

Noting that several others have said they have searched and never found this guy, I looked up the rarity guide number in the Cherrypickers' Guide. Might be reasonable to assume that they are pretty darn rare as they gave it an URS-004 (5-8 known). There are of course many more than 8 of these things known ( PCGS has graded 31 of them in some MS grade), but as an index when the URS is 4 a coin will fall into that darn-hard-to-find category.
