Answer
Hi Beck,

Well, to put it bluntly, the two guys trying to pass off those 1979 DDO's are totally clueless.  Both coins are clearly strike doubles, not die doubles.  They are probably ignorant of what a real DDO is, but you never know, they may be trying to pull something.

This is a perfect example of why you need to have these DDO's certified, so that your customer knows what he's buying.

When you come to the FUN show, I recommend you locate the couple of dealers that specialize in error coins, and have them look over the stuff you've found, just to get their first-hand opinions, before you go and spend money to have them certified.

2 Dealers to look for :
Byers Numismatic Corp (Mike Byers)
Fred Weinberg & Co.

They will both be at the show, and are the two biggest error dealers I know.

Lastly, I know of no reference that lists any known 1979 DDO's.

Expertise

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.

Experience

I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- http://www.workingmancoins.com -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
