the second coin I will be sharing with you tonight is listed on wexler's as 1999 1 WDDR-010.
I have confirmed all die markers even with as difficult as those little bitty die dots are to see LOL
I hope my pictures are good enough for you to see them as well.

These would be perfect for my Stereo microscope, but I just can't get that excited about coins made pre 1950, in fact most of my main interest besides the Two Cent die varieties I am working on are Colonial and Pre-Federal era coinage. Maybe one day I'll grab all of the Wexler books on DDOs & DDRs and go to work on them, with the stereo scope it's not such a reach.

My2cent do you have a Stereo Microscope yet? If not you really need to get one, it makes it so easy on your eyes looking at/for these micro tiny pick up points.

I have an old Lomo (Ukrainian) Stereoscope Sold in the UK under the Zenith brand. I don't recommend it as parts are expensive and it's really heavy, but the Bausch & Lomb or AmScope are all good values, if you have the money, Olympus and Leica are the top brands to have. If cost is the issue, then you can Google this one, they sell for under $200 and are pretty good quality: " AmScope SE306R-AZ" They don't have a camera port though, that will get you into much more expensive territory, due to a much more complex prism head unit being required to accommodate an extra light port. I only ended up with the scope I have because I sold them and mine was a floor demo that I got a steal of a deal on, in other words too good to pass up.

If I could do it again, I would look to a table mounted stereo scope head unit on an articulated arm so I could keep it always on my desk and have it take up no room at all.

See: https://www.amscope.com/stereo-micr...g-light.html Though I am NOT a fan of the ring light for use on my coins, color temp. is way off, I need to sell my ring light, as I never use it. I just use an Ikea Janjo LED lamp on a gooseneck arm that was $10.00.

I am only using a jewelers loop I'm not even sure how strong it is but it is sufficient enough I suppose. Unfortunately I can't afford anything at this moment but I still enjoy the hobby as much as I can. My boyfriend says it's an expensive hobby to have but I do not buy coins therefore every coin that I collect from change is valuable to me more than face and it doesn't cost me anything.

On the normal fresh new Memorial dies, you will see normally 4 false columns:

They are there to give the appearance of the rows of columns behind these rows:

There appears to be a weak bar on the left side of the statue. (our left) It maybe listed, but your die looks like it was polished, making it weaker. So check to see if there is a listing with a stronger one in the exact same place with the exact same height and width?

Okay but like I said I did already find it on wexler's and found the die markers all matched up with my coin so what else should I be looking for? I'm not understanding

No. It is the correct listing then If there examples stronger, then it may have been before a die polishing. It just show weaker on the coins after a die polishing. That was what I was saying.

I get that! At least you are having fun and that's what counts. I'd suggest you at least spend a little time at the Newman Numismatic Portal, it's free and you can get a lot of the research materials and books for free in PDF downloads or online reading.

https://nnp.wustl.edu/

Books are under the Library pull down, you can search by title or author. I use this site ever single day for something or other.
