I didn't pic this one but feel like I got a really good deal on it. There are a few dies that I haven't even seen ( on eBay after a year of stalking), this being one of them. Another I can't find is the 1947P FS 101. I also got outbid on a 1938 D FS 501 recently, was that you guys?This one came with good pics and judging by the reverse pic is in very nice condition! What do y'all think?

Nice pick-up in great condition, with a MAD as well.

Thanks frog. I didn't notice the mad, it's a pretty good one! I saw one on eBay recently that was about 15% but only on the obverse. It was an extremely mad. I think they wanted $20 for it.

Very nice. Needs an acetone dip before 2x2ing.

Nice buy! I found mine in a bag of circulated wheats.

Nice find. I don't often look for the lesser known DDs on eBay but it is nice to know they are out there for the picking.

Hi Will, Very nice one (and please don't dip that beauty). As for the 38-D, I had to pay a bloody fortune for it but it should be here shortly. Needed that one in better condition so decided to go high on it and get that done.

Not even with acetone? Why not?

Because dipped coins are often easy to see that they've been dipped and thus won't grade straight up. This is an FS-101 coin in MS-64 or better condition which makes it a registry-quality coin. Would be really, really bad to screw up a coin worth good money.

Canned air can work, but I go to photography stuff (which canned air is used to get dust off of slides). A microfiber lens cloth should be able to lift that off without making the slightest mark. You just don't rub it, you gentle pull it over the surface without pressing down. Should take most of that kind of stuff off.

I would stay away from canned air as well. Compressing air can force the water vapor it contains to condense and you might end up spraying your coin with micro droplets of water.
Photography stores sell a simple rubber bulb with a nozzle that can be used to propel air across the coin.
When particles need to be agitated to help them move I use a large super soft natural bristle watercolor brush and lightly dab stait down then back up. No swirling or lateral movements

Just getting off work and checking this out. Thanks for the comments, interesting to learn about the cleaning. TB I had a feeling. I've missed a couple recently but I've bought so many that it's fine with me. And seanqueue, coins are there for picking, but it's really hard to find the good ones!
