I don't usually pick these up when I see them, but this nice AU is in stage A, without the die chips, and I find them to be far more rare in this die stage. I picked it for $10.45 including shipping, so it was a bargain.

Price was right and I agree you don't see stage A examples a lot. Nice pick!

On the FS-1102 DDO-002, note the sagging loop on the '0' on the date? That is what to look for first on this one.

Thanks all! Merclover, I'd say no to slabbing but reasonably close to being worth it. Slabbed PCGS it would likely go about $80 at AU55, and the slab would cost about $40. But since I could put it up at auction on ebay and get $40 I wouldn't actually make anything. Plus, the stage A feature is much easier to note in a normal old ebay auction than with a slabbed coin that doesn't say it on the label (and PCGS wouldn't put it on the label). So the die stage may add $20 to the coin, which would be easier to realize on ebay, on an unslabbed coin. Hope that makes sense.

Yes, it does make sense. I knew it would be close to being cost effective, but if PCGS won't label it as "stage A" it would not in the end make "cents" any longer.
