Looking at what PCGS has on their Coinfacts website and they further going to Variety Vista and checking the markers for this DDO, it has the look but I'm not totally sure. Found this going through a bag of wheaties from Amazon, not the find you'd expect. If...If this is what I want it to be, how much would it be worth in this poor condition because I can't find this variety being sold anywhere in any condition.

It does appear to be DDO FS-101 but I would like to see a closeup of the eye to verify. Can you take a closeup of that area? It's the strongest point of doubling for this variety so it would be easier to identify:

As far as value goes I recommend checking sold listings on eBay. However, your coin does have some environmental damage so it is going to be less valuable than a problem free example. Regardless, Very cool find!

I realise the date has taken a PMD hit, but the four doesn't quite look right to me, the stem of the four seems shorter than normal.
