1918/7 D Buffalo found….hopefully

VetterVetter Posts: 790 ✭✭✭✭✭

I believe I have found my 2nd overdate this year. Yes it’s acid dated, but still a cool find. Please let me know if you think it is. Thanks!

    I will join the consensus and agree... that is the overdate. Congratulations... Cheers, RickO

    The 7 looks especially crisp for such a worn coin. You may even have an early die state. Jumps out at you

    That is a fantastic find. Is it a cherry pick?. CRH? Congratulations.

    Thanks all. It’s from a group of partial sets and loose Buffalos I picked up. It’s been a good year. I’ve gotten 2 18/7 D’s, a 1936 D 3 1/2 leg and a 1937 D 3 leg. All for under $1 each.

    I think he does also. Might even be one of the very early ones without the diagnostic die crack.

    i decided to take a gander at some high-grade examples on CF and from the supplied picture, i was thinking up some compelling ideas as to how this MAY be the case but JUST when i was about to close out the window, i clicked on one of the actual coins imaged and looked for an EDS and viola!

    my original argument from the close-up on CF was that the 7 could be over the 8 but it just wasn't punched down as far as the 8, which does make it look like it could be BUT then the image below shows that the odds of the 7 being punched so even over the 8 but not as deep which makes it look like it could be punched over the 8, really is highly unlikely.

    one would ask why would someone even put the 7 over the 8 but anyone versed in mint history and familiar with a wide array of hub/die varieties knows there are all kinds of ways/reasons punches could be used intentionally or accidental to create such anomalies.

    It could be that the 8 protected the 7 as the coin experienced more wear. Awesome find!

    The OP said the date was acid treated which might explain why the date is especially crisp.

    I dont think the acid is going to shape the 7 like that it'll just reveal the date how it was struck

    On the reverse the "D" always leans a little to the left, I don't know how close yours is to the rim, but that is another way of telling.

    Looks like the over-date to me.

    Hard to tell from the pictures, but I'm pretty sure it is an acid-restored date.
    Still a nice find.
