1977 DDO FS-101 KENNEDY HALF

I just got this today, should I have it graded or sale like it is?

    Why would anyone want to pay over $.50 for this?

    Can we see closer pictures of the DDO?

    If DDO stands for Dinged Dented Obverse, you might have one.

    I have a number of these but can't tell from your pic if this is one. Closer photos of the motto are needed.

    @Matt97932... Based on those pictures, I do not see the DDO.... Cheers, RickO

    There aren't any DDO or DDR 1977 Kennedy Halfs listed in Variety Vista.

    I don't see any doubling on your coin either.

    Check PCGS's price guide. It's there.
    I have one too. Given to me from a generous member here.

    There is a nice DD on the 77-D Half. FS-101. It can be seen on NGC's VarietyPlus pages.

    The thread title says “1977” but the coin that was posted is a 1977-D.
    And the PCGS pop report shows a DDO for a 1977-D but not for a 1977. That aside, the coin that was posted isn’t a doubled die.

    Oh?
    Yeah, you're right. Didn't catch that technicality. Old age evidence.

    Without closeups there’s no way to be sure if it is in fact a doubled die. It’s not a very strong spread

    Yes, roger that. My misunderstanding, I'm losing it! Thanks! 👍🏻

    I was looking at the OP's subject line. I didn't even look at the coin!! 😫 👎🏻
