I got this penny from change the other day. Is this a double mint mark or a die fill? It looks like a small D over a larger D. Thanks for any help.

Cool Cent! It looks like there's something funky going on with the 8 as well. I'm just starting out so I'm looking forward to seeing what the experts say.

Die crack on the 19. Machine doubling on 8 and mint mark. Way to tell? The flat shelf like damage from die movement. A dead give away? The date and mint mark show the same direction of machine doubling damage. Sorry. Keep looking.

Some have asked about my images I use and I'm glad to say, I've completed an Educational DVD of these. Become a supporter of this site, send me your address and I will send you a DVD. Many have loved this so far. I just completed version 11. The most updated version yet. So if you haven't got a copy yet, it is a good time to do so. I also have a DVD and one for windows media player. The one for media player is nice for your computer as it is clearer in images. Let me know which you would prefer. If you are a new member and wish the DVD, make your donation and have them pass on to me where you would like this shipped. Most have really appreciated this to increase the coin knowledge. Thanks for your support!

I was looking at the picture and penny again. I retook a picture of the penny again and apparently there isn't no die crack as mentioned above by two different members, apparently the "die crack" was nothing but a piece of fuzz or some forgien object. So I am guessing I have nothing more then a MD penny.

It's machine doubling.

machine doubling on a mintmark will 'take-up' some of the nomral shape and size of the mintmark as is the case with this coin. A true repunched mintmark will have one completely normal mintmark with 'extra' around it.
