hahah! Thanks! So its not the die stage? Its shadows/angles?

 

 

No. It's definitely a worn and repolished die.

Got this the other day. It needs a lot more study than I've had the time to do. First glance appears to have pretty good doubling on the obv.

I cant tell which is doubling and which is a reflection. Is there a die variety that is truly DDO?

 

I believe that there is but don't have any reliable reference on the Roosies.

I couldnt find a good reference online. Maybe someone knows of one.

 

 

This is an area of great potential. I have actually considered a Roosevelt site similar to some of the Lincoln cents sites. Just don't have the time or money to mess with one right now.

A few new Roosies for the collection. Both are PCGS FB coins.

The toning on the 55D looks really unattractive in the photo but in reality is quite nice. It's a rose colored tone with golden highlights. I don't usually like toned coins and almost never purchase anything for my Roosevelts with toning but I took a chance on this because of the price. I like it.

 

The exception to my toning rule is the wonderful overall golden hue taken on by many Jefferson nickels. I find it quite attractive and will purchase coins toned that way but I won't pay a premium for them.

A decent percentage of my Roosevelt Proofs Registry coins are 69 DCAMs or UCs. When buying coins in that price range the DCAM vs CAM vs just proof carries very little premium and they are so very pretty.

Got a few new Roosies today. They're much nicer than the pics (ebay seller's) indicate. I am going to have to get my act together and learn to photograph my coins.

Here's a Roosie that I just added. It's a '67 SMS MS66. Very nice coin.

I've been messing with photographing and scanning some coins and such so I couldn't let this pass without adding a few nice Roosevelts to this thread. I still love the little pups.

Nice '55. I prefer the NGC holders but stick mostly to PCGS because the PCGS slabs work for both the PCGS Registry and NGC Registry sets.

Nice. I'm thinking about moving on to Roosies once I finish the Jeffs.

 

Edit: Or after I finish the Ikes after I finish the Jeffs... decisions, decisions!

My concern with Roosevelts is the silver content. As the price keeps moving up the common pre-65 and post 91 silver issues will start to hit the melting pot. I think this has already started to have an effect on Washington quarters and certainly on Kennedy half dollars.
