I found this Nickel in some pocket change the other day. As you can see from the pictures there is some doubling of the letters "BER" in the word liberty, and the "201" of the date on the front, and "LO" in Monticello and "NTS" in Cents on the reverse. I was wondering if anyone could help with any info about if in fact it is an error or not. I haven't been able to find it in any price guide, but I see some one has a few on eBay.

machine or mechanical doubling, note that the "doubling" is shelflike and undefined. Common and interesting but no added value and technically not an error. Commonly sold as doubled dies by uninformed sellers.

The seller posted in jasper62 reply has already sold 7 coins exactly like this with MD as DD coins with prices ranging from $4.50 - $15.00. He has received positive feedback on them all. I guess if the buyers are uninformed...but happy with their purchase is what matters. I wonder if someone was to inform the seller of his mistake...would he pull the listings and offer refunds to the buyers.

I did let him know it's not a true double die and explained what it really is and his reply was "Duly Noted"
In other words he doesn't care
