This was an assisted cherrypick from one of the esteemed board members who spotted this DDO-001 in top condition and gave me the lead. Huge thanks!

It's a fairly mild class 6 doubled die obverse, but paired with a fairly nice RPM it makes for a solid double variety. I don't know what others have been graded, but I am strongly thinking of re-holdering this one to get the varieties on the label and surely must be top pop.

Excellent find. Really nice looker.

I'm with you liking to have the variety on the holder for such a nice coin. But will NGC put the variety on it? If not ANACS might not give it the same grade.

Yes, NGC will do that as this is an upgrade to the one already in my collection slabbed MS-64 and fully labeled with both the DDO and RPM. Hoping to get similar label on this one without needing to re-grade it or anything just add the variety part.
