Hello, This is updated from a previous post with new photos. Thank you for earlier replies. I have the penny (very, well circulated) listed above. Checked VV, CC and while looking thru Wexler's, I **believe **I found the WRPM 029. Please view photos below. If there are any problems please let me know. Thank you for taking the time to view and share your wisdom.

    since V V only lists 10 RPMs for the date, i presume the 029 is a wexler designation?

    i'll leave it to someone else to help as there are just too many minor split serif RPMs to wade through.

    with the position of the S to the number 4, that alone should narrow it down significantly and with the many die scratches/gouges, it should be a pretty easy one to verify.

    i didn't see a match on V V since wiles would usually return split serif RPMs unattributed/no discovery. some slipped through the system though.

    fwiw, i wouldn't consider it heavily circ. looks AU to me.

    based on the image you provided, i presume from doubleddie site, looks like a match to me from the scratches/gouges.

    Nice find, and a great job of detective work.

    That's the way it should be done.
