Any thoughts on this being DDO-101. I thought it maybe after comparing with PCGS's photos on one coin that I zoomed in on. Any and all thoughts would be appreciated!

It is not. The doubling is on LIBERTY And the date most noticeably.

Looks like Machine Doubling on the motto.

Note the bottom of the 'R' on TRUST on my image. You can see the upright is not as wide and the notch on the lower left leg of that device. (Not on your coin)

Hello Still in Circ,

Your coin is not DDO-001 (Variety Vista)... aka WDDO-001 (DoubledDie.com ). aka FS-101 (CherryPickers' Guide)

There are many posts here pointing out how the TGP got it wrong when it came to attributing coins.

For attribution, I recommend using actual SOURCE DOCUMENTS...

Good luck on future finds!

I agree, just Machine Doubling. Note how the devices are reduced in size?

Very true, I agree that the TPGS got it wrong. I looked at the one 65 picture and that is why I thought mine was DDO-101. Looked absolutely similar. I guess they just graded a MD quarter. FYI- that 65 looks nothing like the others, I also noticed that they look fairly different or maybe it's just me...

Hello Still in Circ,

I am not saying PCGS got it wrong here. I am saying it is best to look at the Mona Lisa and not a carbon copy.

Ever play that game where everyone is sitting in a circle and you tell the person on your left a word?
That word goes all around and when it gets back to you it is different word.

Good luck on future finds and looking forward to future posts.
