  • Sorry, thought I had fixed the D, obviously it is a 1988 P.

    Does it EXACTLY match anything listed on variety vista or Wexler's Doubled die site?

    These should always be your first stop if you think you found a doubled die. Plus, they are loaded with other great bits info like characteristics of true doubling vs non value added doubling (MD, DDD) and info on making dies. I strongly recommend bookmarking and using them

  • First, I want to thank you for looking and giving your input, it is appreciated.
    Although not exact with variety vista, there is a second ear lobe under the original and they even state that stages were unclear, which is why I came here for advice. I'm sure you understand I'm new and learning the hobby, I'm always thankful for the advice from those who know more, thank you!
    What did you think of the WAM?

    your 88 is a RDV-005 - In the Cherry Pickers book is sorta misleading that it puts the RDV-006 in the classification of WAMs. But technically there was no CAM in 1988 until 1992. If you have a WAM you got to have CAM. I think your looking for RDV-006. Here is the 1988 that I submitted to Dr James Wiles for the 1988 RDV-006 back in 2007 that made it into the Coin World Magazine,
