    eBay pick: 1963 FS-101 Washington quarter

    I was lucky enough to pick this beauty for $6.81 + $3.50 shipping. Minus the rim ding around K9, she looks amazing in hand. The doubling looks super under a loupe. I haven't had time to try to match die state yet.

    I I have taken images of the other 1957 proof Lincold DDR, but I couldn't match it up quickly. I believe it is gonna be a task to attribute, as most of the similar DDRs do not have any listed markers. It's probably going to take trying to match up a flow line here and there, and I haven't had a chance to really get on it. It is a nice DDR though. Thanks for looking!

    Congrats on a fantastic pick!! That is a really cool DDO that has tripling not just doubling! I checked out sold ones on eBay and was surpised it didn't go for more that what is does. 30 to 40 bucks on MS65 but it jumps big on MS66, about $150.

    It can be found in mint sets. I guess uncirculated examples aren't that rare. That would be my guess because the doubling is awesome to study. I have fell in love with it after studying it for a while.

    I think it also has to do with denominations.

    So many coin collectors started with filling cent folders and it's much cheaper to get bags of cents to search so it seems they get the most interest and OCD urge to get lots of varieties.
    I've met a few nickel collectors and Kennedy variety collectors but way less of them than cent variety collectors.
    The big well known ones in the redbook of any denomination sell better but less known ones have low demand.

    One of the shops I visit once bought a persons collection of IKE varieties, it had tons of slabbed IKE DDOs, DDRS many are tripled dies and were all high grades. They sat in a case priced around the cost of slabbing fees or less and they sat for years. I guess the odds of an IKE variety collector walking into a coin shop are pretty slim compared to a cent variety collector walking in.

    Most folks that have a huge head is because of their ego, yours though, it's stuffed full of crazy, endless knowledge that just baffles me!! I appreciate all that you do for us and always look forward to your comments!!
