VF30. Handsome!

 

O.107, R2. I have a very clashed 107 in AU50. If you'd like to see it, shout.

What, no filled N? Oh drat...I did this from coinzip and not from the book. Okay...I'll look harder.

It could be the O-107 prime, with no cracks, no clashes, and no sign of a filled N. The prime is a possible R7.

Good points. Definitely O-107 and I agree with your observations that this is very likely a very early die state.

My assessment is that this may very well be the prime, though with the early die states things get a little fuzzy, but in my mind this is an O-107 prime.

Splendid! What a great catch. Have you shared it with any authorities?

Certainly looks like the prime. Fantastic rarity, if so. Unfortunately that scratch through star 13 is going to prevent a no-problems grade.

Well, it's safe in my album for now, so no worries about grading! lol as for the notifying the "authorities" I bought it from Rick Irons, and he had suspected it was a prime, here is his description: "Prime variety with no die chip in N is probably R7 per AMBPR."
