Choice Unc (12: 3,4,5) RD. The second rarest doubled die in the Lincoln series after the unobtainable 1958 DDO (3 known). There are under 50 examples known of this variety - about twice as rare as the coveted 1969-S DDO, which has about 100 pieces known, The coin is an outstanding beautiful full red with a few marks that limit the grade to only a 64. There are only three examples graded higher. The doubling is evident on the date, LIBERTY and motto. It is close to the spread of doubling seen on the 1969-S DDO (MS64RD value - $100,000). This is the forgotten step-child in the Lincoln cent doubled dies. It is too rare to trade often and as such values have stagnated. I think the price offered is way below its true potential. In 1996, I had the opportunity to buy a 1958 DDO MS64RD and offered $25,000. It is now valued at $400,000, if you could shake one loose.This has the potential to be a $100,000 coin in the future, like the 1969-S DDO. PCGS used to list this as just 1970-S DDO, but included the common FS-103 in their listing. Now it has its own listing. As such, lower auction listings invariably are the FS-103, not this die.
