VARIETIES:

101    1970. Doubled die reverse.
102    1970-D. Doubled die obverse. Breen reports that many DDO varieties exist for this date.
103    1970-D. Doubled die reverse.  (FS#25¢-027.3) (photo)

COMMENTS:

Type C reverse was used on all Philadelphia business strikes and primarily on the Denver issues.  Breen reports that fewer than 0.1% of the Denver issues were produced with the type B reverse which makes them very scarce.  As with the 1969 proofs, the type B reverse was used exclusively on the S-mint coinage.
