    Question about Variety Vista 1968S RPM-003

    Additional Information
    Date: 1968S
    Variety: RPM
    Mint: San Francisco
    Coneca: 1968S RPM-003
    Wexler: 1968S WRPM-001
    Coppercoins: 1968S 1MM-003

    Going through some 68S's and this one seems to have similar attributes to the questionable RPM listing on Variety Vista. I do not see the Wexler file on this one and there are no photos on Coppercoins.

    What do you guys think? Is the MM placement correct? Are the die flow lines I'm seeing worth checking this out? There are no markers in the attribution notes to check. If there's any way to check this one it might prove that VV listing is die deterioration because it doesn't look like a RPM to me.

    Viv,

    I'm come across a few examples of 003, and I don't believe yours is the same. That being said, I do see a split upper serif on yours.

    Thanks Jody! I'm not seeing the split, maybe it's glare related. Let me get a Ray System shot of it. That's cool you have found some 003's! Looks like Dr. Wiles is asking for some help on updated pics for this one if you would like to send one to him.
