I have one that's more like a triple die. I am going to do some more research but this half dollar is definitely a double die at minimum in my opinion. Sorry about the scope images but my camera will never image the doubling or tripling. It is there however. Not many were minted so I am really curious if this has been spotted before.
I was just admiring my collection of OTC. I am now up to 5 beautiful pieces including one 67+.
The 1933D was my first purchase of this type. I was looking at it tonight and spotted this-






THIS IS MY 1926 just to compare with no signs of doubling anywhere.

    Yes, it's a known tripled die. TDO FS-101 ;)

    Okay thank you.
    I bought it as a regular strike. It appears they dont bring a premium.
    Edited to add don't.
    Hey that was fun. I didn't realize they came that way. I'm glad to see it's not mechanical doubling anyway.

    Varieties are cool in my opinion. If they command a premium...bonus!

    The tripled die obverse isn't rare, but it's cool nonetheless. Oregon's are one of my favorite coins.

    I plan on putting together a complete set of all dates and mintmarks in 66 or better. So far I am up to five. Two are raw but I bought them in person. You can see the obverse in the images. I think they are 66. If they are not I still love them. In my opinion only I think they are the nicest commerative ever designed in silver. Just a masterpiece.

    The Oregon commemorative is indeed a beautiful coin. They did some nice coins back then.... I wish they would do such a program again... With real art... not commercialized junk. Cheers, RickO

    I agree with you Ricko. Boring stuff.
    The skill and patients involved with creating this die is tremendous. I think they did okay with modern quarters aside from that it pretty much is the same old same old.
    It would be cool if they would change up the nickel. It's been the same for so long.
    Pennies aren't even copper anymore.
