I've had this 1974 D thin date LMC for quite some time and decided to post it. It matches no known DDO, mintmark is in the wrong position. The devises are thicker than that of a normal thin date cent and the 4 in the date is doubled enough to see a split at the end of the horizontal.

Well hmmmm. I think class VI is mostly ruled out as there is no distortion of the E in WE nor on the BE of LIBERTY. The lower bar of the E being extra thick is pretty common on this year, even on the thin dates so I'd not put too much in that. And anyway having a bit of a notch on the 4 would suggest rotational anyway. The only devices I can really see much of anything that might be going on are the Y of LIBERTY and the US of TRUST. If you can see things on the date, it would suggest a class V rotation from maybe K8. The nearly completely unaffected LIBERTY would support this (note the enclosed areas inside the B and R are completely normal).

That said, I'm not seeing anything strong enough that CONECA would list it, and unsure the others are accepting any listings right now. Personally, if in-hand I were sure this coin is a DDO, I'd put it in a 2x2, label it as DDO-unlisted, and toss it in my box of such things. But if even remotely questionable, I'd give it a pass and set it free.

(Although the image of DDO-001 of the mintmark area really wasn't much help)
