I got four very nice FS variety coins this week. This is one of them. I definitely didn't pay a lot for this one as it is a very hard to spot variety. I found a couple of unlisted die markers that helped me pick this one. I did this and worked nearly 100 hours this week. Crazy. What do you think?

Looks correct to me. Amazing pick! A strong DDO on a really solid coin.

Thanks guys. PCGS doesn't have a 66 graded for this variety. NGC has one and is sold for big bucks in 2014. I kinda want to pop this one out of its case and get a stand alone top pop at PCGS.

I would agree with getting this variety properly slabbed to be a true top pop. Would it be best to cross over or crack it? Either way there would be a risk of it coming back undergraded, right?

Yes ch it would be a risk but crossing a coin costs a lot more. I think this one is a strong 66 and not doing anything to it atm. E. J. Scott I sent you an email. Thanks again guys!

Another bomber! Will I don't know how you see some of these on Washington quarters as they are so hard to pick out from images. Great find and great eye!

This will be the last update of the evening. I was nervous about this coin but PCGS agreed that it is a 66 and will be the lone top population for this die!
I did have one disappointment with my results. They detailed my tail feathers coin. As a whole the submission went awesome, so I can't be disappointed about that.
