Finally ... found this on ebay as a BIN -- Took one month to get from NJ to WA. I think the pony express would have been quicker -- At least they had a sense of urgency. I figured it was lost in the quagmire that is the USPS beaurocracy.

Probably just a red/brown, but that is fine. Still a nice variety.

You must be kidding ... It is quite obvious.

@cents, no not kidding. Not because we doubt you but rather it is always nice to see a good closeup of a RPM.

It may be obvious to you, but not to the rest of us. C'mon.

Oh I can see the rpm of course, but yeah, a nice closeup would help, and I've always liked rpms.

That is why I put up a link to the variety. The RPM looks exactly the same -- My pic even shows the reverse marker.

Very nice pick! A tough variety and a HUGE plus to have it in MS RD. Congrats! I do agree that it's normally uniform that when we post varieties on this forum we include closeups. It would be a nice plus for this variety too since it's so strong.

What is the odd mark below the M of UNUM?

Excellent pick and a fantastic variety in that condition, congrats! I've always had the best luck with USPS first class shipping with tracking but they are going off the rails now, just like everything else.

It's a clash of the mm and an excellent PUP when searching bad pictures on listed coins on the bay. There is a similar clash on 1925-S RPM-006.

Very nice variety. big congrats!!

Closeups of the MM or the main doubling on DDO / DDR variety are like extra eye candy of the cherry on top of a volcano-sized banana split.

Currently, I'm using a macro on my phone for closeups but finally have a scope coming.

Wexler's EDS shows it the best. Later die stages turn into a bit of a blob.
