i have a question. with strike doubling the die strikes the metal. it usually shift slightly creating a stair steps. would this be a correct statement. but what if there is no shift and steps are smaller then the original strike. would that mean the die is actually doubled itself. meaning from the way the die was cut. any information would greatly appreciated. what I am looking for is your opinions. this new coin is a pain to photography. I just opened a new roll. every one of the coins is identical.

Rocky, learn how dies are made, doubled dies are NOT strike related but a product of manufacture.

Crazyb0 I understand how dies are made. I used them the length of my career pressing wire and various connectors. I understand machine doubling. what I dont understand is if the die creates a shelf. why would it only double on most of the coin both side. yet triple died on Elizabeth II. its only tripled on II. how is that possible. I know that the mint presses are knuckle head. that information was explained by DBM he knows what the mint uses for presses. I know through having to learn about all presses. how the knuckle head works. see in my line of work proper pressing save million of dollars. well andy this is the best I can do for know. I had to take all my equipment apart.
