Minted at the Philadelphia Mint in 1943 it is certified by NGC as a DDO (Doubled Die Obverse) VP-004 in MS66+. It has a Population of only 1 and by having the + (Plus) designation it is the highest known certified grade by NGC. NGC assigns a + to coins at the high end of their assigned grade, approaching the quality requirements for the next grade.
For example, this coin graded NGC MS 66 + is close to the quality of a coin graded NGC MS 67. In addition to their superior technical merit, coins that receive a + must have above average eye appeal. The best way to identify this coin is to note the doubling of the letters in the words "LIBERTY" and IN GOD WE TRUST in addition the 1943 date is also slightly doubled. Finding these coins in Gem Uncirculated or higher is very scarce.
