Hmm @ska, I'm not seeing the doubling that you are with the coin in hand. I do note that US of A is damaged along the tops of the letters, most likely due to a rolling machine.

It's hard to tell from the pictures but I agree I'm not seeing any doubled die, there appears to be a fair amount of circulation wear and at the bottom of the devices on the reverse ledgand it looks like there is a roller damage that has slightly pushed the bottom of the letters downwards.
Just a spender for me.

Yes, appears to be post-strike damage--vending machine or Rolling Machine Damage on the reverse. A little difficult to determine further due to the somewhat soft nature (not sharp) of the images posted.

In my opinion, not worth submitting for grading.

I'd send it in anyway and ask if they'll label it with the exclamation point.

why would you go against what the professionals say, who are trying to help you? It will cost you 35 to 50 dollars to send it in when you coin is worth 3 cents.

pics are so over magnified (too large and distorted) it's difficult to make a determination

Does not appear to be a doubled die ( maybe that's why you were unable to find info on it?). If you send it off to be graded it would be a total waste of money.

with what has already been said. It's worth 5 cents and will cost you $30-$50 to be graded - what do you suppose you should do?
