Although I believe this coin has some numismatic points of interest on it, there is a unique attribute to the image. See if you can spot it. Let me know your thoughts on the image and thoughts of DDO. I took the pic at a slight inverted angle to display the vertical doubling on the B, E and R in Liberty.

The spike coming out of the head was what took me aback (die error I guess but unique). I am pretty sure this is also DDO but I saw that later after looking at the coin a while.

I think the lighting is creating an illusion. I read on here once that if you can spin the coin 180 degrees and still see doubling, then, you may have a DD.

Well I looked at the coin live and spun it. The vertical doubling (for lack of a better term) is there. I am not sure if you're referring to that. I took these two shots while zooming





As for the spike illusion, that could be incidental to the pic. I wasn't really focused on that when I was moving the coin around. I'll have to look at that spike again tomorrow just to see how it looks live.

The devices are normal size, no DDO, lighting is reflecting bright, most likely indication of MD

Sorry, the pics aren't clear enough for me to really see anything.
