Re: Doing Research on this topic

Carpman's description is right, as is the Krause description. I don't believe that the coin being auctioned in Chicago is the same one the SP-66) as was auctioned in 2010 by Heritage. I believe that it's the coin that used to be owned by Chet Krause, bought by him in the third Pittman sale, and resold about 7 or 8 years ago. If so, it is in a PCGS MS-63 holder, and is the coin stolen from Pittman, and later returned to him, damaged.

Your coin is interesting. Look at the rim of the coin, right under where the dot appears. See if you can see any evidence of the coin having been drilled there and repaired. I've seen cases where this was done, to create the dot, by putting pressure on the surface of the coin from below.
