Excellent coin! AU55 underrated, underappreciated, and undervalued at present. Their a MUST have DDO
for the registry set participants and it appears their just not making these 1983 D FS-101's any more.
I feel strongly your coin if certified by PCGS
straight grade and placed at auction with GC with an opening bid of $200.00 will sell at between $200.00 - $325.00. Perhaps not at the first showing but eventually a registry collector would likely have strong motivation as MS examples are just not to be had. If members disagree please show pics of yours...would love seeing them.
2 of the former MS 1983 D doubled ear cents I formerly owned are now in registry sets...the 3rd example I acquired from a bat:) I ended up selling it for $175.00 + and it was raw AU details.
Won't kiss and tell but 6 coins (Lincoln Memorial DDO
's) phoophoed on this forum are now in the registry sets of 4 of the bigboy collectors. Bats - that 66 FS-101 you sold me I sold it, it promptly graded PCGS
65 RED top pop for buyer arrrghhh! You, I called it a 64 so sad too bad for us. On lighter note the buyer was ecstatic :)
Killer die variety take your time on whatever you do, my opinions jaded as I simply love this rare variety.
