This popped up last week on eBay. I needed to upgrade this one for my collection and this looked like a nice problem-free example. I threw in a low bid and ended up winning it for $14.99 without having to bid against anyone else. Something I noticed about this particular example is the doubling that is present inside of the 9 which I haven't seen pointed out on other examples. How did I do on this one?

Extremely well struck up, though I'm not sure about that inside doubling, more similar to MD from these pics than hub doubling

Thanks to you all! GC, I don't think it is MD. I think that would look more flat and reduced rather than enlarged like this. I do agree this is a very well struck example. I still need FS-101 and FS-102 but this was such a nice example to not bid on.

Edit: took a photo with a different light angle. The "inside doubling" appears to follow the strong point of doubling in the shape of the 9. I think it is hub doubling but feel free to share your opinion!

This is a nice example of the third major doubled die of the 41-P LWC series, better than my lone raw G-6 example. The doubling shows up nicely, congrats!
Edit 1:
@CH27: Thanks, I found this variety years ago while searching 5,000 count wheat cents.
@GC: This variety is classified FS-103 and exhibits offset hub doubling (class IV). The famous 1983-P DDR, and the 1984-P DDO, (doubled ear), LMC are also examples of offset hub doubling.
Edit 2:
To my knowledge there are 9 different classes of doubled dies; can you name each class and also give an example of a coin that represents its specific class of doubling? This is for anyone...

Thank you Finn! Hey, a G06 example is better than no example at all! This is a tough variety to find so I'd congratulate you on your example as well!

Edit: this die has a spread similar to many of the big ones we hunt after. If it got a full squeeze then it would have been a monster.

A nice pick-up to be sure, but your close-up pics through the slab are really well done.

Thank you Spence! I struggle not to capture the slab imperfections in the photos but I'm glad they came through okay!

I saw that one and it was so low-priced I almost tossed a bid at it, but it's not an upgrade for me so figured I'd pass and let someone else get the deal. Happy it was a member of the CCF, and congrats on a great coin at a great price!

This is quite the early die state, and I agree that it is possible there is hub doubling showing inside the 9. Can't be sure, but it does look that way and certainly could show up there on an early die state coin. Good eye to see that bit.

Thank you Bats! The sellers pics weren't great but I could see the doubling quite strongly even with the blurry pics so I knew it was going to be a nice coin. It is an upgrade from the one I found a wheat bag and that one Certainly isn't the prettiest. I remember the MS example you found In a roll a little while back and I was wondering if you ever got that one in a Slab? That one is quite the looker.

Thank you QuarterHoarder!

Tippy I use a cheap clip on macro lens on my phone and a ottlite lamp. It's nothing fancy but it gets the job done.

Nope, haven't slabbed that one (yet). Just figured it would struggle in at maybe MS-62 so hasn't been at the top of the list to get slabbed.
