1972 DOUBLED DIE OBV 1C


Variety Diagnostics

Very strong doubling on LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, and the date.

Comments

This is the strongest of nine doubled-die obverses for the date. Counterfiets are known, but a die gouge extending from the rim above the “D” in UNITED is a good indicator of authenticity. Beware of lesser doubled dies being passed off as this variety.

This coin is ranked #10 on the list of 100 Greatest US Modern Coins (First Edition).
