I have this 1877 10 cent coin which is quite worn because of it's age and size so the images are not well defined. I can see with a loop that there is a DDR that is most easily made out on the 7's of the date where there is a significant spread. In the pictures it manly looks like very wide and bold lettering. At the top of the 1 in the date just to the east of the top of the number there are what appears to beat least 3 other die marks from the one. Is this possibly a quadruple die? If so is it worthwhile having it graded?
@gs1, a clearer pic would help, but when I rotate, crop, enlarge, and enhance your current pics, I see what looks like damage to the northeast of the number 1. I can't see split serifs on the 7s, but again a better pic would be useful. Maybe take one through your loupe to post?

If you have an iPhone, here's how to get a magnified photo. In settings, enable the magnifier like this: Settings > General > Accessibility >Magnifier: ON. This is for people with vision impairment, but you're going to love the photos it can take. To use it, press the home button 3 times fast. Play around with the zoom and distance between lens and subject, lighting, etc. Touching the screen makes it focus on that spot, just like the normal camera. Touch the on-screen button to take a shot. Now this only captures the image, doesn't save it. To do that, press the power button and home button at the same time. That opens a screen where you can go ahead and crop if you want, or do it later with any other editing you might want to in the Photos editor. Touch 'Done' then 'Save to Photos.' Sounds like a lot of steps but after you do it a few times it becomes muscle memory. Now I suppose you have an Android, lol! If so, I bet it has the same feature somewhere/somehow.
