@Earle42: You are correct that one should usually see Strike Doubling on more than just a mint mark. In fact, this is a key diagnostic I look for.

On the original Barber dime in this discussion, additional Strike Doubling is also visible on nearby devices (easily noticed on the left side of the ribbon to the left of the mintmark).

Regarding your 64D quarter, the doubled mintmark is clearly Strike Doubling. However, since there is no photo of any nearby devices I can't comment on whether the Strike Doubling is confirmed by them.

I think I have a decent handle on Strike Doubling having talked with coop many times on this subject on this forum. Also since getting back into the hobby around 6 years ago I have looked at over 200,000 halves and other coins under a microscope while identifying and searching for varieties. I have seen a lot of MD and actual DDOs and DDRs.

This quarter of mine did surprise me b/c I only saw this extreme doubling on the MM itself. It interests me that only one section of a coin can be affected - and greatly, while another area of the same coin surface is not. But then again the changes to the metal itself when being forced to conform to the dies' design so quickly and under such high pressure is complicated anyway.
