This is a mighty strong one, and looks to be at the break point of PF66 for submitting to PCGS for a slab. It has a light finger touch mark on the reverse or I'd be thinking maybe a 67.

So, I went looking around at a couple of these online. At 67 PGCS shows a population of 12/1. Not many. I found several for sale on ebay, but a run of 4 of them caught my attention. PCGS certification numbers 39185166, 69, 70 and 71 were likely submitted together, and maybe even more as 67 and 68 are missing in the string. But, all four of those are NOT FS-801, but DDR-002. That die has a very distinctive die marker between the bottom of the N and I of UNITED, plus the doubling goes the opposite direction and isn't as strong on the interior lettering. Thus at least 4 of the slabbed coins are not FS-801 at all, and makes me wonder what the actual population is if you went through and removed the wrongly attributed coins.

Link to see one of the wrong ones:

And as a side note, there is a RAW one for sale on ebay by a professional attributor, listed as DDR-002, FS-801. Not sure what is going on with all these DDR-002 coins being called FS-801, but it is curious.

Anyway, I really like this DDR and happy to have scored this one. There is doubling all over the thing, but just going to save a bit of time and just show an image of the strongest area around STATES.

I have been hunting for this one for a bit now too. What an amazing score! Such a strong variety to be misattributed but they also misattribute the 1943 FS-101 too often so I guess it makes sense. Big congrats on an amazing pick!

This is a real tough one. Hard to come by but it's probably the strongest IV DDR for the series.

Thanks folks for the super kind words! Tis a pretty coin with a great DDR, and have now slid it over to the PCGS bin so somewhere down the road I'll update this post with a grade. But between me being slow to get things out, and PCGS being really slow at getting them done, could be a while.
