Lately the middle-grade coins from the 1920's haven't been going real high, and I was able to pick this quite nice 1924-s for less than $4. Sadly shipping was $4 so I've got eight bucks in it.

Thinking about a new sub-series, I'm not doing any close ups, but encouraging viewing of the whole coin. It's not super hard to see the thicker tail of the 9, harder to see the distended corners on the BE of LIBERTY, and getting downright tricky to see the extra thick lower right leg of the R in TRUST. But they can all be seen, and DDO-001 can be verified from just the while coin shot.

But for a new "occasional" series, I'm putting this up more to show how to cherrypick these without guessing about what is too thick. Note the die chips in the R and S of TRUST, and the filled 4 of the date. DING! Guaranteed die 1 if you see these. A true die stage A will have none of them, but those are almost nonexistent, and most all examples have some or all of those die chips.

So there you go, just a glance at the full pic coin, or any 1924-s in hand or wherever, and you can pick out a die 1 immediately.

Very nice! Good idea on the sub-series as well, I'm sure that would benefit MANY who read your posts. Really, just a good idea all around.

That's a brilliant idea. I often have a difficult time cherrypicking from whole coin shots so this will certainly be helpful for me and others as well!

Who reads? I skim then examine the images provided before I get too many clues on what to look for, THEN I go back and read..

Nice pick and very cool idea on training us to look for PUPs, on particular varieties. It's amazing how obvious they are sometimes, just need to know what to look for.
