Very close to normal.
Minor impact damage that would not bother most collectors.

What you do have on the Obverse is some Ghosting (indirect die transfer)

Die Deterioration can lead to 'towards the rim' device stretching as well.

I agree with others that chalked this one up to circulation impact damage to the U.

Class 6 DDO's can "stretch" the base of the U's on the obv or reverse. There are almost always other signs to look for on class 6 hub doubling as well though. Look at the parts of devices parallel to the rim such as the date, LIBERTY, E(WE), EPU, wheat stems, etc. to help identify class 6 coubling.

It is were a DDR, then the dots would be egg shaped.




Cause and affect will affect an overall area on a DDR. But damage can affect one or more of the devices in the same area. Seeing is understanding.

CoopHome: What will help me see doubled dies easier? seeing side by sides that show hub doubling (doubled die) and a normal die. the side by side will help to see the spread easier on a doubled die.

Thanks Coop. Not sure how I forgot to mention those oval dots on the reverse for 90% of the DDR's.
