1988 Reverse of 89 & 1988D Reverse of 89 (RDV-006 Transitional Varieties) FS-901 In the spring of 2007 in upstate New York, Jeff Snow discovered a 1988 cent bearing a reverse design intended for coinage beginning in the year 1989. The 1989 reverse is referred to as RDV-006. This is the newest transitional variety discovery. A subtle but unmistakable change in font in the designer's initials is the most distinguishing characteristic of the 1988 RDV-006. Looking under modest magnification for the flared "G" in the designers initials is the easiest method of identification of this transitional mule. The normal 1988 coin(RDV-005) has a simple, straight "G". The variety coin was made with a reverse die featuring enhancements including serifs at the top and the bottom of the right vertical leg of the "G" in the designer's initials. Steven Bingham was the individual who discovered the first Denver mint-marked specimen. Denver examples seem to much more difficult to obtain than Philadelphia examples. These varieties are listed in by Fivas/Stanton as 1988 D FS-901 and 1988 FS-901. These will be listed in the next edition of the Cherrypicker's Guide to Die Varieties. ANACS will assign FS-901 to the slabs. Once the new Cherrypicker's Guide is printed PCGS and NGC may certify the variety. Article by David Carten & Author
