Hello,

I'm wondering what caused the doubling on this coin?

Thanks,

Nancy

I think you loaded the wrong picture. I'm seeing two reverses. But yes I agree its MD. And not even that extreme compared to some halves found coin roll hunting. I save ones with extreme flattening (like about half the letter) because they look neat.
