July 12, 2011—CONECA Member, Bill Fivaz of Cherrypickers’ Guide fame sent in this photograph of a nice tripled die reverse that is one of a number of new listings slated for inclusion in Cherrypickers’ Guide To Rare Die Varieties Fifth Edition Vol. 2 by Bill Fivaz and JT Stanton. It is listed by CONECA as DDR-002 – 2-R-II (3). Originally reported to CONECA by Ed Raser, the variety boasts strong doubling to tripling on the Eagle’s left wing feathers (viewer’s right), tail feathers and a slight to moderate spread on HALF DOLLAR and AMERICA, with tripling on the F of HALF and last A of AMERICA. Other doubling can be seen on the eagle’s claws, the perch upon which the eagle rests, etc.
