I've been looking for the elusive 1969-D for years. Been through hundreds of BU rolls and thousands of coins from that year in rolls and whatnot. Never could find one.
A goodly while ago Tanman found one, and posted it on CCF. It can be found buried in this post.http://goccf.com/t/304195
He was amicable to a trade, but we were in no hurry and he wanted to keep the coin for his research for a while. Well, just about a week ago I got a package from him and tucked in there was the 1969-D DDO-001. Huge thanks! I have agreed to send along some nice trade coins for it.
I've been fairly busy lately, and hadn't even taken it out of his holder yet to photograph it, when I got the bright idea that I should check the last 4 rolls of 1969-D I got in. I bought four trays of BU rolls a couple weeks ago and hadn't got to those yet as with 400 rolls to play with they just weren't the first things I checked.
Last night I checked those rolls, and much to my surprise, in one was not one, but two DDO-001 coins. Wow. When it rains it pours, and it's been raining here lately.
So Tanman will get his coin back for his collection, but I will still send along the trade coins as he deserves them for being so kind as to give up a rare die to help me complete my collection. I owe him that.
And if you actually read all that, then here is the better of the two I found in the roll. Another one off the list of DDO-001 coins I need to complete the set.
