Hello everyone. This time I am certain I've got 101. 99.66% sure. Everything matches up. Unfortunately for the forum, I still suck at photos. And unfortunately for me, this isn't the best example. For some reason the motto is struck like 40% lighter than the rest of the penny. And this makes the most important Doubling hard to see. But it's there!

I asked the lady at AM/PM if there was any chance she could maybe just maybe sell me ONE roll of pennies last night. And I was expecting the usual "No, sorry, it's really hard to get change these days". But instead I got, "Can I sell you ONE Roll?!? How about I sell you a hundred? Are you joking?" Apparently some dude goes there all the time and only pays in hand rolled pennies. Super rad for me! I will be going there more often... But yeah, that's where I found this one.

PS: I'm never specifically looking for 70's just coincidental that I found 2 decent ones this week..

Unfortunately, does not look like FS-101 to me, that one stands out. Does look like DDD in the date, tough to call from these pics.There are a lot of DDOs for this one, not saying one might not be hiding there, but without sharper close up shots, tough to tell.

Photos are a bit too blurry to tell for me.

Here is a close up of the FS-101 devices.

From your images, I'm not seeing that doubling?

It's there. Just harder than heck to capture. Be you can see the notch in the back leg of the R kinda...

But I'm going to stop at a coin shop later and see what they have to say.

I want to see it, but I can't given the photos posted. Perhaps a friend or associate--with better photography technology--can take sharp, high resolution, close-in photos for you.

Not FS-101. There would be a large spread like coop included above. Keep hunting!

Note that there are a number of rotational DDOs for this date, so if not FS-101 then still could be one of the lesser DDOs. Looks like something going on but pics just not clear enough to make any kind of call.
