Twenty-Five Cents 1961- D RPM

| user_9894

I was looking through some coins the other day and I found another RPM. So the first thing I did was look at the Cherrypicker's Guide to see if it was in there. There is a possibility that it is the one shown on page 206, URS-4 - I-3 - L-3, though I think my secondary  D may be south and east of the primary D. There doesn't seem to be any other doubling on this coin, which would indicate the re-punching also.

My spouse and I went to the monthly coin show today (it moved to the second weekend of the month during March, April and September this year) and I must say it was crowded. I was surprised to see so many people out. It must have been due to the clear skies and warming sun light.

I picked up  a 1943-S Jefferson 5c UNC and a 1937-S Buffalo 5c XF+. My spouse found a 1906 and a 1910 Half Dollar, both of which she purchased for the grandkids. I perused a 1937-D 3-Legged Buffalo just to see what it felt like. Not ready to buy yet, there was no tingle coming from my wallet!

Fun blog. Sounds like fun at the show. I like that doubled D. If I sent it in they would say it's "machine doubling". Good Luck!!!

You know, I had that happen, but how can it be machine doubling when there is no other evidence of doubling on the coin, just the mint mark?

So you had a good time at the show. That's the important part. Making pic ups is always fun. I know what you mean when your wallet wiggled. It's happened to me. But you were smart. Stay on a budget and you will have it soon enough. Good shots. Keep up the good work. Mike.
