"Should this be in the metal detector section? I think we need better photos."
Thanks John. Yeah, I debated putting it there, but really was seeking a possible attribution/variety. I've gotten wonderful responses in this section before from those with far more knowledge than me, and as a novice collector (don't have Penny Whimsy yet) am eager to learn more.
Thanks Conder101! Looks like this variety has a die crack across the obverse in front of liberty's face. Some show a more pronounced crack and cud, others not so much. Mine seems to be the latter.
"Terrific find, very nice-looking in spite of the environmental damage. Would likely grade "VF details, corroded" at a grading service.
I'd trust Condor101 for attribution."
Thanks for the feedback Jaobler! I've dug many DB LCs over the years and collect a few on the side, but only ask for attribution if the coin is good enough to ID from my perspective. Always great to get an answer.
