The 1972 DDO 5 shows class I rotated

especially in later die states.
There are over 9 different double die
obverses known for this year. If it were
not for the existence of DDO 1, DDO's
2, 3, 7, and 8 would be much more
popular. The each show strong class I
doubling. DDO's 2, 4, 5 and 7 are
rotated counterclockwise, while DDO's
1, 3, 6 and 8 are rotated clockwise.
DDO 9 is class VIII doubling.
