A lazy rainy afternoon looking in an old box of coins always

has a surprise or two ........


I was digging around in an old box of ANACS and PCI coins this afternoon and discovered a couple semi-treasures I did not realize that I had including the one pictured: An ANACS 1934-D DDO Large ( Filled ) D Variety in AU-55 which just recently began appearing in the Red Book as an established variety ( the large filled D being the tougher sub-variety as there is the slightly more common DDO with a smaller D mintmark ) .

I also discovered a 1963-D PCI Franklin Half in MS-65 which is clearly a D/D mintmark and maybe a D/D/D and a 1884-O PCI Morgan Dollar MS-65 which is clearly the tougher O/O mintmark and one 1881-S PCI Morgan MS-66 which surprisingly looks the grade .

There were several other MS-65 common date Morgans too boot .

So all in all some interesting finds to line up for future NGC submission .

It is I think wise for any collector to take the time to look for varieties even when looking over NGC and PCGS coins ...as once in a while something gets missed . If you are a Peace collector check out any of your 1934-D's for the DDO variety which is worth significantly more than a regualr coin . The doubling appears most prominent on " In God We Trust " .

Happy Collecting !!
