Holy Cow! I hope this is happening! My first possible major error find. I've been saving BU rolls since 2005 when I collected heavily and had no kids or wife with the hopes I may get to them one day. Tonight I dragged some out. I had a half open BU roll of 2009 DC Philadelphia quarters and decided to go through them. Ironically it was open because years ago I traded someone on this forum for some other coins. I kid you not the first one I picked up made my heart skip a beat. Here it is! Tell me what you think!

Please properly rotate photos before posting...thanks. I think we are going to need in focus photos with less glare to really help you. The better the photos you post,the better we can help you.

Thank you for the tips. I tried again. I definitely can not get a good look or picture of the die crack above the piano. The depression under the MB in Columbia has the right shape and location. The doubling on the key looks right.

Thanx John! That's the website and photos I am using to try and authenticate with. It seems to have all the same due markers. I just can't trust myself! Plus finding six of these in half a roll seems unlikely.

Finding six of the same dies in an original bank roll is not uncommon. Finding six FS-802 dies is a truly remarkable feat! Well done, and congrats on the amazing roll.

I'll have to find the member here I gave the other half of this roll to all those years back! I'm sure there were a couple more!

Congrats on a great find.

Thank you everyone! I think I'm confident enough now to move on to the next step, but what exactly is that?

I signed up to vista variety so I can post photos there. Definitely need to get a better camera set up. I'm having a hard time seeing or photographing the die marker (die crack) above the piano. Maybe this is an earlier state and the crack is not as visible is a possibility.

Next I need advice. Where to get them authenticated. How many to send off. Any advice is appreciative. PCGS has a population of 12 and NGC has a population of 10.

I have picked two that have the least bag marks and have the best chance at grading MS 64 or more likely higher. I just dont know as I am not a good MS grader.

Any advice is much appreciated!

Well yours looks like the FS-802 DDR-004. (image above on my post) Just add those numbers to the 2X2 and store it with your RPMS. Having it graded would probably cost more than the value for the coin. Get a three ring binder, and put the pocket pages in that hold 20 per page and your on your way.

Thank you for the reply coop! I must not be understanding correctly. The DDR 004 FS 802 is listed on the PCGS price guide as $75 for MS 65. The MS 66 doesn't have a price but the auction record on EBay was $400 from 2019. I see one listed now for $354.
