Photos speak for themselves on this one I think.

Picked up for $76+BP at auction.

Might be one of my best buys ever.

I can't believe you cherry picked this! Especially in this grade, and certified! That's quite an amazing accomplishment, huge congrats!

Okay, I'm genuinely amazed that this got missed or just not labeled by PCGS and everyone else who saw it. This is a well known major variety not to mention it's a Red Book listed DDO too, so even the common collector would know about this.

And $76?! For a book value $1000+ coin?! This might be one of the best cherry-picks I've seen! Huge congrats to ya, this is one heck of a rare pick.

WOW!

Great find. That would be a find of a decade, not just the year.

I don't believe they put it on the holder unless you ask for it, and pay for it.

ANACS puts it on the holder if you state what it is when you send it in. They do not charge extra for it.

I did. Just started browsing that site more and wanted to test the waters there. Seems like there aren't many error/variety specialists over there, so it didn't get much attention.

Also, thanks everyone for the congrats!

Goodness gracious I do believe that's the best cherrypick I've ever seen in the four years I've been collecting errors and varieties!

Massive congratulations Tanman! Absolutely stunning and brilliant!
