I've just been finishing off this box of pennies I picked up two days ago, and I almost fell out of my chair when I put this under the microscope. By far my best ever CRH find! (not that I've done enough to have many). Sadly, it has some unfortunate environmental damage, but I'm still beyond excited about finding such a strong and obvious doubled die!!

Last two pictures show some of the damage :(

Thanks, QuarterHoarder! It's been one of my favorites since I got into error/variety coins about a year ago, and it's one that I kept a particular eye out for, so I was beyond thrilled to add it to the collection!

Wow. This is really, really rare. I've only heard of a few examples floating around (less than 10 I know of), so that's amazing!

Wow, seriously, GrapeCollects? I had no idea! I never really check populations, so I just look for any variety that seems interesting enough that I'd like to have it in my collection! Now I love this coin even more!

Extremely rare coin. I am lucky enough to have one of these but have never found one myself. Very, very well done indeed.

Thanks Tropical! Is this worth getting slabbed even though it would be a details coin because of the verdigris? Love the coin, but so bummed it won't straight grade...

Congratulations. Very nice find.
Get some Verdi-Care on that soon to help minimize oxidation.

Should I, Pete? I posted about conserving the coin on the general forum, and jbuck pointed out that the black spot on the A could be a hole in the plating. I didn't get a clear answer on whether it would be better to VerdiCare it or not if that were the case...

Maybe a soak in acetone first if others agree?

I certainly would. I see "white-ish" areas on the coin that makes me think it has been in some kind of liquid (the environmental damage you noted).
Even though it is a "details" coin because of environmental issues, leaving it as it is will only allow more oxidation to occur.

If Badthad pops in he can add input since it (Veri-care) is his baby.

Congrats again on the find!

Thanks Pete! Also, any thoughts on whether it's worth getting stabbed despite being a details coin? Everyone is saying it's very rare, but it seems to be so rare the auction history is pretty scant, and I can't really figure out if it's worth enough to justify sending it off.
