DDO6 is a proof coin and yours is not a proof. DDR5 is also a proof coin.

Yes. Just to be clear, your coin can not be what you were leaning towards because it is not a proof coin. I an not seeing your coin as a doubled die at all. It might be what is called a poor mans doubled die, which is really just a worn die issue.

John I was just messing around with you I know I can't believe it it's a proof set. And being a poor man's double die I still like it that's not the the big one but I'm getting close.

Just to be clear, the Poor Man's Doubled Die is not a doubled die. It's just Die Deterioration Doubling, which has no value. They call it Poor Man's as just a nickname, it isn't anything significant, but you can keep it for future reference.

Yes silver I do understand it's better than I've been doing. I paved roads all day I'll get coins out the union and I didn't have time to check them. I broke my back and now I'm going through my change so I'm getting a chance to learn something and do something I've always enjoy doing since I was a kid collect coins
