Scarce 1972D 1c DDO

We see a remaining tail flair doubled against.

We'll see...WHAT? What brought your attention...?

    I would like to see full pictures of both the obverse and reverse.

    Kennedys are my quest...

    It is a DDO, but your arrow on the two image is off. The doubling is one the bottom of the two, not the top. Look for the splitting on the devices.

    Does NOT look like rhe DDO #1 of 1972 but instead a much less expensive DDO.

    A Collectors Universe poster since 1997!

    Appears to be a minor DDO.... just barely.... CPG lists nine (not counting Proofs). Cheers, RickO

    One of 72's many DDO's - but "Scarce" ???

    The OP says this is a 1972-D cent, not a 1972-P cent. If that's true, then it couldn't possibly be the big one.

    varietyvista.com lists 6 doubled dies for 1972-D cents. The pics here look like they could be a match for #1, #3, or #4.

    One seller on eBay has a bunch of similar 1972-D DDOs. They sold one for $90 (https://www.ebay.com/itm/275134330699), but several others closed without any bids at $90 or even $80.

    I'm fine with the OP calling this scarce -- but the eBay listings show that others are available, and that scarce doesn't necessarily mean a lot of value.
