Finally found this rare variety in a roll I got from a local coin show today! Been after it for a while and I am very happy to finally find one roll hunting. It's been a rough patch for coins I've hunted recently and this really makes up for it.

It's not going to be a high grade obviously, but it's mine! It also appears to be in a fair die state, as I have seen some of these that are pretty mushy and this one still has strong splits and separation. In hand it is a nice brown color with no cleaning or major damage. Based on graded examples of this variety, I think this could possibly go G-06/VG-08?

Thanks for taking a look!

Despite the circulation flattening, I agree that there are some splits at the tops of the letters, especially in the WE of IGWT. Nice find!

Thanks Spence! It's a pretty rare variety to find so I'm happy with it. TRUST has some well defined notches and splits too.

Thanks Tanman! It really is a tough variety. Been through a lot of 1917's and this is the very first one I've found. Well worth the hunt. Keep looking!

Thanks Ty2020b! I agree it's a pretty solid candidate for VG.

Congrats on a super pickup.

That separation on TRUST is what usually does it for me. Especially the separation on the TRU and with how wide the vertical on the last T is, compared to the horizontal bar.
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups. We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

Thank you Pete! My go-to spot is always the date first, looking for that forked 9. Even if I don't see anything immediately on the date I'll scan over TRUST just to be sure. As you mentioned, the wide separation is pretty dramatic on TRUST.
