Hey Kurt thanks for sharing. Awesome photos of an honest, original coin! This is a very exciting variety, one of the top of the entire series. It is the only QDO known, and does show at least four steps very distinctly on high grade coins. Serious collectors might aim for both early and late die states, as the late die state is quite interesting. It serves as an excellent example to new collectors on how the dies can deteriorate, and what they look like.

I remember the first time I found the QDO, and have found a couple since then. They are very easy to spot once you know what to look for, but they are rare. Anyone desiring the QDO should be able to pick one eventually. The heavy degree of die deterioration suggests there are plenty of them out there to collect.


Collecting Flying Eagle and Indian Head pennies never made more cents!
