    Fo Sho, double Liberty!

    The top as far as I.H. cents are concerned. Find a reputable coin dealer and SLAB that coin.
    You better obey.

    What you have there, is the lesser version of the Powerball lottery. If the back side of that coin looks as good as the front side, you're going to send it off to PCGS and get it certified and graded ASAP -- and I'd take out the insurance on it!

    Even in dug condition, it might be worth thousands of dollars, it looks at least XF40 to me, maybe better. Need to see a much higher resolution image of both sides. PCGS says only 122 are known to exist. ** Been staring at it, it's definitely the "Closed 3" variety, and the break in the "D" on the left side matches other doubled-LIBERTY examples. You got a winner! Get it slabbed!

    Holy CRAP !!!!!! And the detail is amazing, it'll probably come back witha grading of "damaged", but you should get it authenticated, it probably has "MS" details, AWESOME dig !! Definately banner.
    I noticed that no-one really utilizes all the signature space provided, so I figured to be REALLY original I would make up the longest signature that I could and probably just leave it as one big run on sentence because all that punctuation just takes up way too much space-HH.

    Re: Is this what I think it is???

    Wow, thanks everyone for your responses. Woke up this morning with an overwhelming urge to get back into those woods today!

    I haven't taken new pictures of the coin, but I really have no doubt, the doubling is SO strong, even without magnifying. The reverse of this coin is as beautiful, if not more so, than the obverse. I know it won't grade super-high, and PCGS will probably say "improperly cleaned" and "environmentally damaged", but I'm going to send it out regardless. By far the best thing I've found after 7 years of detecting.

    Thanks again, hopefully I'll be posting a picture of a 1916 D Merc later today........
