My First DDO

Coins-United States | CoinHunter

Hello guys, great news! Yesterday, I found my first DDO! I had a pile of cents to look at that I have beenaccumulatingover my last several boxes of pennies. These coins are coins that looked like they may have had an error/variety, or whereslightlyoff-center, toned, orseverelydamaged. Well, how did I find it? So, I was going through all of the coins, and I I threw a 1982 CU large date cent under my microscope to try to see why I kept it aside, and BOOM what do I see? Doubling,especiallyon In God We, it is a DDO-002, and it is somewhere around XF shape, and I think (and think you will to) that the doubling is absolutely awesome looking. Also, today I got 10 rolls of quarters and guess what I found,absolutelynothing, I am telling you guys just toclarify with you that I don't find cool things in every hunt I do, just sometimes (especially recently).Enjoy the pics, make sure to check out the forum I made recently, and have a great day!
