The box of twenty coins you are grading says mint error and variety services were requested for each coin. Good luck!

    Unfortunately, I was just fired from my grading job for gross incompetence. I'll be drowning my sorrows.

    I would call it MS64, I guess it is a doubled die but I didn't look it up as I am not much of a variety guy.

    Clean one, with an attractive look. I would grade 65 as there are just enough marks and ticks (especially on the cheekbone, face and neck) for me to want to think otherwise.

    DDO is nice, but not dramatic enough to make my socks go up and down. To each their own on that though.

    A nice coin but the hits on Washington’s jaw, one in the hair and significant hit on the eagle’s left leg have me a 64.

    Let me put it this way - several here are close to the correct grade. No one has been able to combine the correct grade and variety, so to me no one here is close.

    To be fair, this is a GTG. While a few have brought it up, there was never a mention of "Guess the Variety."

    I did mention in the OP that variety services were requested.

    If you’re a grader, you have to get both right if variety services are requested.

    Does the grader also attribute? I would think attribution is done separately from grading.

    I beg to differ. I think @coinbuf got it spot on a half a dozen guesses in. He even called out the DDO (kind of), but not the FS number.

    I beg to differ again. Not exactly true. Regular graders do not verify Overton #'s on CBH's, this is for sure last I heard. I would imagine the same is true for the FS numbers, some of which are a little obscure IMO.

    As I understand it, most graders are expected to be able to identify most varieties. I'm not certain if they'd have to be able to identify exact numbers, but I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.

    CBHs would be a little different than DDO like this one, since I understand they're also divided into die state.

    Todd, I respect your opinion, but I think we'll have to agree to disagree. The goal for this one was to see if the forum could identify accurately which DDO this was, so I was hoping for responses to include some actual attributions. I believe only one correct attribution was made.

    My post was made in a goal to let forumites see if they are able to identify varieties like the many grading services are asked to do daily (and to a lot of variety collectors, is vastly more important than the grade itself). It doesn't seem like that goal caught on, which was unfortunate.

    I suspect that I may be representative of many collectors when it comes to my interest in varieties.

    To a certain extent I like varieties. The major varieties that are readily and easily noticeable and recognizable; and that are well publicized to the general hobby are the ones I have an interest in.

    For those varieties that are less well know, that are less easily noticeable and that require the devotion of substantial time and effort to become knowledgeable on (i.e. the 20+ or so varieties of the 1966 SMS DDO half dollar) simply do not draw and keep my attention.

    I admire and respect collectors who chose to jump deeply into variety collecting, with a goal of acquiring examples of every know variety of a given coin series; and/or going further and devoting time and effort to look for and find examples of other varieties that have not been previously discovered. The drive, focus and single minded determination shown by such collectors is simply not built into my collecting DNA.

    @SanctionII -

    I agree with your list. Varieties we can see without using a scanning electron microscope!

    I have a few on your list. I would add; the 84 DDO cent, 37-D 3 leg Buff, 83 DDR cent, 95 DDO cent, 63 DDR Dime and 82 No P Dime.
