As you may know I am awful when it comes to identifying harder to see DDO's and DDR's, especially in the 1970s. Curious what I have here, the date caught my eye, looked at bit different from the other 1974's I've seen in the past day or so.

Thanks for the help

Ah...thought as much, I'm really clueless when it comes to these things.

There are two, not very well known, design varieties for 1974 cents. One is a thick date with thicker letters and one is a thin date with thinner letters, neither is more valuable than the other. Your coin is the wide date. See ODV-029 and 030:

Oh alright great! So that's why some 1974 cents look thicker than others, didn't know there was two different varieties.
Thanks!
