    That appears to be machine doubling, rather than a DDO

    Looks right to me, DDO 1-O-II, here is the link to the Variety Vista listing with pictures. The slight MAD obverse is a hallmark of this variety, when I used to hunt rolls finding a misaligned '71 would always get me excited, but I never found one of those in the wild.

    Incomplete planchets wanted, especially Lincoln Cents & type coins.

    the neat thing that popped out to me was the split on the LI making it a "naked-eye" variety!

    Nope. It's class VI distended hub doubling. Variety Vista should list it.

    I found one in a jar of coins and sold it for $100.00.

    My post included a link to the Variety Vista entry, where it is described as class II.

    Good catch! I kind of miss searching boxes of cents. I had a lot of fun funding varieties, even though it was always a tough go. More and more shield reverses make me think the glory days of finding classic ddo's like yours are behind us.

    I always thought it was a Class VI, Sean. My bad.

    I wonder where I got that from?
