It is exciting that so many varieties are still being found. For those that got the last Longacre’s Ledger, I was sort of disappointed with the coins that were attributed as new varieties, with the exception of the RPD.
Yeah–chips don’t really move me much either. I would’ve expected some more MPDs turning up. I actually have noticed a couple candidates, but unfortunately I did not win the auctions. That 1880 ODD-002 is much more interesting than simple die chips.
For example, the 1873 ODD-001 is a very bold die chip and worthy of attribution. Rick Snow contends this is a MPD, but scholars disagree.
Is it agreed that the bump in the field of the 1858/7 (S1) is an MPD “1”? I’ve always wondered about that..
