Does anyone care about this Walking Liberty Half variety?
I am curious if there is any collector / specialist interest in the 1946 Doubled Die Obverse. It is in the CPG but is not nearly as bold or as popular as the Doubled Die reverse for the same date. The DDR is the only variety included in the CU Registry, and the PCGS Pop for the DDR is about ten times greater than the DDO.
I am asking selfishly because I cherrypicked an AU-ish example last week, and I am not sure what to do with it. Is it worth the cost to get it certified with the FS number on the holder, or would the plastic end up worth more than the coin?
Pics of the coin are below, along with a close-up of the doubling on the dress that is the main PUP for the variety.
