1872 DDO/RPD/MPD S2-7003 FS-108
The Wildest Variety Coin in the Entire Shield Nickel Series
This 1872 is unlisted in any reference book, but is possibly the wildest combination variety in the entire shield nickel series. This top photo shows a fairly dramatic doubled die to the southwest.
|The date is where things really get wild. There is a repunched 2 between the 7 and the 2. There is possibly a misplaced date in the denticles. And to top it all off, there is a misplaced 2 smack on top of the ball. The left foot of this misplaced 2 can easily be seen at the bottom of the ball, and the right base of the 2 can be seen on the ball.|
|A tight shot focussed on the ball of this variety, image enhanced to better show the misplaced date on the ball.|
