What do you think are the best, of the 31 known, DDR's thus far?

Here are my top 7 picks:

1) WDDR-006/CDDR-009 Billy calls this skeleton finger, my favorite DDO&DDR
2) WDDR-007/CDDR-006, only because it's DDO&DDR
3) WDDR-001/CDDR-002
4) WDDR-002/CDDR-001
5) WDDR-014/CDDR-021
6) WDDR-016/CDDR-012
7) WDDR-025/unknown

I didn't want to show all the pics, too much space.

I'm anxious to see your thoughts !!

I agree about the WDDR-006 as being the most impressive with WDDR-001 as 2nd choice

A Special Mention vote for the WDDR-013 Stage B for "Best Die Crack"

I haven't really kept up with all 31(?) varieties there are now, but the die crack is my favorite so far.

Only one is my favorite:

2009-S 1c FY DDR-001, PR-1-R-VIII

1 of possible 3,000 minted. The rest of you guys mintages could be as high as a million each.

How could that be possible? They've sold, so far, less than 300k sets from the Mint.

At 300k sets, that would be 15 million cents divided by 31 types, or 483,871 of each DDR.

That would mean every coin produced would be a Doubled Die, and that's far from the case.

I wish I could open rolls with 50 DDRs in each roll.

Minor stuff?

The days of Doubled Dies on all devices are gone, with the "Single Press" die production method....... no more 1955s, 1972s, 1983s, 1995s etc.

These are modern doubled dies.

I agree, but check out 14 on that list provided...thats a classic huge nasty die crack. While not a doubled die by any means, it is interesting, and its the only one of the bunch I wouldnt mind finding (not paying for...but just finding)

WDDR-006/CDDR-009 is the best one. Most dramatic and since it has the DDR-002 shared with the DDO-006 far fewer of these were produced. So in my book, it is a winner by three counts:

1. Most dramatic
2. Apparently fewer made
3. Also has a DDO (albeit, tough to see)

Plus it really does look like a skeleton finger, so for whatever that is worth, it can add some interest to it.

I like the WDDR-006/009/DDO-002 as the top pick, second I would go for the CDDR-002/WDDR-001 because the bold finger right smack in the middle of the thumb and index finger. I don't Pick the WDDR-007/CDDR-006 second because it isn't as bold as the CDDR-002/WDDR-001 . The second DDR/DDO would be third on my list. Fourth should be the CDDR-001 since it is so easy to recognize with the big die gouge on the top of the book pages and the die chip on the obv in Lincolns hair.
