Found this one last night the same bag of memorials that I've been going through for a while. Originally there were 7500 coins, but only about 200 left so will finish it quickly tonight and move on to other things.

Nice clear doubling on WE TRUST. Well done @tb. I hope you find at least one more keeper in those remaining 200 pieces that you are searching.

That's a very solid example of a rare variety. Amazing find! The fields are so clean on this coin, super nice.

Look at the spot where the gunk has fallen off above the first T of TRUST. That red is a bit of staining w/corrosion. Be careful about picking at valuable coins as you can find yourself with a much less valuable coin pretty quickly if there are problems under those spots.

Keith, I saw that spot above the T, I guess on this tough of a coin to find leaving it alone is best. On my rpm coins it depends on condition if I should touch them or not...

This one's spectacular, very nice find!

GF, in relation to your RPM coins and removing the gunk, I guess it'd depend on where the gunk is, right? If it's on the actual MM, it might be necessary to remove it in order to identify it.
