    1944-D incorrectly labeled DDO-001 FS-101 on Great Collections

    Here is an auction of a coin wrongly attributed by PCGS. Do not bid on this coin if you want the FS variety. https://www.greatcollections.com/Coi...-PCGS-MS-66-RB

    I think it is likely to be DDO-006 http://varietyvista.com/01a%20LC%20D...944DDDO006.htm

    Whatever it is, it is 100% not DDO-001/FS-101. http://varietyvista.com/01a%20LC%20D...944DDDO001.htm

    Thanks for the heads up Dan.
    The 4's on that coin aren't close to the FS 101

    Interesting, thanks for the warning.

    Strange though -- It's as if PCGS knows they have one mis-attributed because there is no price [but they acknowledge one as been attributed].


    Good time to own the 63RB once they figure out the inaccuracy.

    Unfortunately whomever paid $300 for this coin will be very disappointed once they receive it.

    Here is another mistake attribution from PCGS that I happened to come across yesterday.


    Is QC suffering at PCGS?


    Luckily, not as crucial a mistake as centMD's example.
