Cross References: VCR#1
PUP: Dot below 5 of date.
URS-N/A
Description:
Appears to be an intentionally placed dot below the 5 of date.
Comments: 
Fist reported by Linda Hagopian in 1995.  In 1996, Al Blyth opined that it appeared to be a deliberate "dot".  According to Larry Sekulich of Michigan, who attended the ANA's Summer Seminar in 2009, he showed it to
David Lange, Ken Bressett and Bill Fivaz who all gave it favorable opinions. The preceding needs to be verified -- Bill is this accurate?

1877-CC  10c Ty-II Reverse
Variety: Overdate
FS#: FS-10c-1877CC-301
Cross References: F-108.
PUP: Date.
URS- N/A
 Description:
Shows surface doubling of the upper curve of a 6 on the horizontal bar of the second 7.  Also shows a 1/1 and doubling and tripling of the lower 7s.
Comments:
  Recently discovered by Rick DeSanctis and listed by Gerry Fortin who found that this obverse die is paired with two different reverse dies.  The first die pairing is listed by Fortin as F-107.  Both F-107 and F-108 feature the diagonal die gouge that runs through the shield which the variety was originally listed for.  Compare this to the 1877/6 Liberty Seated half-dollar.

Doubling on left wreath and ONE DIM of ONE DIME.

Variety: Repunched Mintmark
FS#: FS-10c-1934D-501
Cross References: RPM-001
PUP: Mintmark
URS-N/A
Description:
D/D Wide North; secondary D touches an olive leaf which is the probable cause for the correction.
Comments: Some feel this is a Large over Small D but there is no conclusive evidence to support this nor is it listed by CONECA as such.  No matter, it is a great RPM that we'd like to shoot in a higher grade.

1942-S 10c
Variety: Inverted Mintmark
FS#: FS-10c-1942S-501
Cross References: Wexler: WIMM-001, Potter: VCR#1/IMM#1.
PUP: Mintmark
URS-5?????
Description: Inverted Mintmark
Comments:
Just a handful of these have been reported in spite of the variety being well publicized in recent years.  While at first glance this Mintmark style seems virtually symmetrical, it's characterized by a more oval center within the upper loop of the S, a diagnostic normally found at the lower end of this Trumpet Tail Mintmark style and the serifs are angled slightly different then each other making it possible to positively attribute the variety as an inverted S on high grade/early die state specimens.  First submitted to this editor by Brian Allen in the 1990s. Not recognized by CONECA.

1945 10c
Variety: Doubled Die Obverse
FS#: FS-10c-1945-901
Cross References: CONECA 2-O-V-CCW
PUP: Date
URS-N/A
Description: A rather nice spread can be seen on the date.  Doubling might be evident on earlier die stages. The coin shown here is in late die state.
Comments:
This is a rather new find suggesting that there are still many nice varieties out there still waiting to be discovered.  There are at least two other rather decent doubled die obverses known for this date.  The coin shown here is in late die state; it would be much stronger in other areas on an early die state.

These are the correct images for FS-10-1946-101 at the top of page 76
The one up is incorrect.

These are the correct images for FS-10-1946-102 at the bottom of page 76
The ones currently on that page are of a mixture of two different varieties
The CONECA Numbers are:  DDR-004 + DDR-004
(Note: The obverse is the same for FS-101 & FS-102 but FS-102 comes with the 46 of date flatly struck for some or maybe all specimens and as such I suggest we use the image of the date below.  My guess is we can live without duplicating the word TRUST since it looks the same on both FS-101 & 102.

 Strong doubling evident on IN GOD WE TRUST, moderate on LIB of LIBERTY, designer initials, and date.

Description:
Two Deep Valleys in Flame, High Relief. 
Comments: These are not very well known varieties as they have just been make public in recent months.  The reverse on these dimes was first introduced to the Proof Roosevelt dimes in 1968 (where it and RVD-001 can both be found and both are considered common). Its used was largely restricted to proof dimes the the following three years with it only appearing on a few 1969, 1970 and 1970-D business strikes that so far appear to be rare.  After 1970 this reverse became the standard for all Roosevelt dimes from all Mints through 1980.  See images for comparison.  (Diana, this comments section has been changed to reflect a better understanding of what these varieties represent.)

FS#: FS-25c-1952-902
Cross References: CONECA: 4-O-V-CCW & RED-001
PUP: Tail feathers and Eagle's breast
URS- N/A
Description:
This is a later die state of the so-called "Superbird" variety.  At this stage part of the lower loop of the "S" is worn or polished away and the tail feather details have been strengthened by hand engraving.  It is far more scarce than the earlier die states with only the "Superbird" feature.
Comments:   This coin is popular amongst hobbyists for the "Superbird" feature.  Few specialists actually realize that the late die state displays enhanced wing feathers, which in itself is probably more interesting than the "S" on breast. The obverse of this coins is a minor doubled die.  There are two other Washington quarter dates known with hand engraved feather outlines. See the 1953 and 1957-D examples.

Cross References: N/A
PUP: Separate D above stem of olive branch
URS- N/A
Description:
An apparent D Mintmark above the left olive branch.  
Comments: It is known on several different reverse dies suggesting that it might have been first intended to be used as a working die and then blundered, set to the side and then mistakenly used later as a Master Die, which in turn was used to make a Working Hub that was then used to make several working dies.  Most specialists accept this as a "Master Die RPM" while others believe it to be a form or hub damage. Some specialist attempt to own one from each die.  Note: the doubling on the primary D below the wreath is strike doubling -- not an RPM.

Over one-hundred doubled dies are known for the Minnesota quarters that affect the centermost tree (and other centralized areas of the design).  They are found on all Mints including San Francisco proof in clad and in silver.  The vast majority are minor but collectable nonetheless. This is one of few Minnesota doubled dies quarters that PCGS designates as an "Extra Tree."

URS- N/A
Description:
 A large hoof-shaped die dent can be found just above the Bison's rear right leg.  It appears almost a deliberate addition to the die but the cause is unknown.
Comments:
Vincent Burke found the first specimen of this coin in early 2006 while searching an 11-coin silver proof set. To date fewer than two-dozen have been reported.  Surely more exist.  The variety is significantly larger in area than the die aberrations found on the two well-known  2004-D "Extra Leaf" Wisconsin quarters to which this variety is sometimes compared to due to it's curved shape.
Coin submitted by: Vincent Burke.
Raw specimens have been sold in excess of $500.00.

Description:
Clash marks in mouth or from nose
Comments: The so-called "Bugs Bunny" die clash on the 1955 Franklin half-dollar is perhaps the most well-know and most heavily promoted clashed die variety of all time.   The clash marks were transferred from the reverse to the obverse (during a die clash) from the wing feathers of the small eagle found at the right of the Liberty Bell.  The effect made it look like Franklin had buck teeth and the nickname "Bugs Bunny" caught on.  In recent years the collecting of other dates with clashes in the areas of Franklin's mouth and under his nose has caught on with many dates fetching significant premiums over normal date half dollars in the same grades.

Variety: Type 1 Reverse
FS#: FS-50c-901

PUP:
Eagle
URS- N/A
Description:
Type of 1948-55 for proof and business strike coinage; low relief eagle, four flattened feathers left of perch and other minor changes. 
Comments: The Type-II high relief eagle was introduced to replace the Type-II low relief eagle on proof coinage starting in 1956, while the low relief eagle was maintained for business strike coinage through 1963.  Exceptions are business strikes dated 1958 and 1959.  A significant number of those (20% for 1958 and about 70% for 1959) where struck from retired obverse and reverse proof dies. Data from Myles Lambson indicates that this type makes up about 5% of the total mintage of 1956 proof half-dollars.

This is already in the book but the photos do not do it justice since the main area of doubling is in the eagle's feathers.  Suggest dropping the right photo in the book and replacing it with this image.

Mint spokesman, Michael White, in a March 20, 2008 statement said: "it was a simple mistake in the hand placement of the segments for the mottos to appear out-of-order."  In a March 27, 2008 statement the Mint said: "100,000 of the errors may have been produced early in the production run before measures were taken to prevent the error from occurring."  To date only Pierri's five specimens are known.  Surely more exist.
