Hello,

Is this a 1972 p cent DDO? Took the best pics I could with a loop. The coin is not in the greatest shape. Thank you very much as always for your time and opinion.

With the weak design and damage, authenticity is questionable.

Can you get a full-coin pic?

Looks like a sand cast counterfeit.

I believe that is a counterfeit, unfortunately.

Very much agree with counterfeit. Nose and ear are both incorrect. Also, there should be a larger spread on the 7 in the date.

Thank you everyone. John, these pics are taken with a loop and my phone camera lens. Not sure if I can get much better pics then this, with my current equipment. Anything you would recommend?

I'll try to pick one up tonight. I did see one in our local hobby shop. What do you think of the Dino-Lite scopes? Are they worth the buy? I've seen some around 100 online. I may invest in one of those. I'm looking to seriously start learning error coins. Thanks!

And get multiple thin boxes to set your phone on to stop the shakes. Multiple ones to get the correct distance away from the coin. Even some small stackable items to place under the coin. Thas will be important as well for closeup images.
Full coin shots will be about 3" and closeups will be about 1" of separation. Enlarge the viewing area as needed if your phone has that capapbility.

And remember that light will reflect off the boxes if they are white or shiny and that light may be detrimental to good images, by adding glare.

Dinos are nice but a bit pricey. Get one that goes from 0-150x power. I have a $60 Celestron and a $20 Dino.
