I've wanted to find one of the many nice 1983 doubled dies for a while. This one isn't the most dramatic, but it's not too shabby, either! The late die state makes it a bit hard to see under my microscope, but I've done my best to get the light to catch on the split serifs in UNITED and the separation lines in ONE and CENT. Fortunately, mine happens to be in nearly the same die state as the example coin listed by Wexler, so it's very easy to match the (many - lots of die abrasion) die markers.

This was the very last 1983 I looked at because I like to set aside the couple coins in the best condition for each year as I search and look at them last in the hopes of a nice surprise. This was the first time that last nice coin has ever actually been something

Lol, apparently this is CPG listed! And here I was playing it down lol... I may send this off for grading since it's in MS red condition and Coppercoins seems to suggest this coin is in the 200-300 dollar range!

That's an amazing find! Very scarce variety and far rarer than the big brother FS-801. This would be a nice candidate for grading if it looks nice in hand. I can't tell how the grade is with your full coin images, but there are only 9 examples graded RD by PCGS. If it looks nice enough in hand, I am an advocate for sending it in. Congratulations!

@Coinhunter27 Thanks! I think I once knew that this one was pretty rare, but I somehow forgot (and even forgot it was listed in the CPG lol) when I first found it! The picture I posted of the full coin doesn't do it justice, but it looks amazing in hand. I would say MS64 pretty comfortably if not higher.

That is nice, Sam, congrats! Still looking for either one. Was this beauty from a bank roll?

major find that baby's popping with doubling. Its a good one have owned an MS BN and sold it ahhhh and regret it. Even at $200.00 I think these are undervalued and don't come up often for auction. Great score.

@Makecents Yep! Bought $10 of customer wrapped rolls the other day. There were a good number of BU 80s-early 90s mixed in, so I wonder if maybe at least some of the coins were from an old change jar or something that a person finally cashed in.

@luvmyCAM Thanks! It's awesome finally getting a rare variety that's actually on a nice coin! The only other truly rare variety I've ever found was a 1996 FS-101 in absolutely tragic condition. Feels so much better to get a rare variety on a beautiful coin.

@luvmyCAM someone seems to be selling a legit one raw on ebay right now for $200 in what appears to be about AU RD/BN condition if you're looking to own one again! (Not a seller I know or have anything to do with, just looked the variety up out of curiosity and thought I'd mention since you said you had seller's remorse)

Congrats on finding a very nice variety. That looks to be at least a 65 and maybe even a 66.

The DDO-001 is a CW hub rotation. The DDO-002 is a CCW hub rotation.

This 002 is a nicer die state than most are. There were a lot of die polishing on the reverse die as the die aged.
