Just found this one going through some wheats. It's my first Wheat cent DDR. I probably overlook some, due to their very minor doubling. This one has some big fat stems. Thanks guys!

If that is a DDR - I never would have even noticed.

There's not many more obvious than this one on wheat cents Mark. My pics might not be the best but this one is very easy to identify.

Congrats!

I have seen a few wheats come up in this forum that are DDR and for the life of me I cannot see it. I wouldn't know what to look for; it is hard enough for me with LMC's.

I am glad Mark asked and you explained it because it is really helpful for those of us taking notes.

Yeah, no kidding - My eyesight sucks so I have to see something other than fat letters. Give me some split serifs at least.

Here's my cent next to a normal 1934 cent. Check out how much thicker those stems are than the normal die. The first is the normal die

No problem. I was talking more about DDRs on wheat cents earlier. There's not many major ones that I know of.

Here are a few listings on Variety Vista:

With the flattening it makes it harder to see what is doubling and what is flattening. But they show more die stages and you might find a matching marker to tell what die stage it was when it was struck?

The thicker wheat stems will usually jump out at you when examining them in hand and the dots are dead give away most of the time. They will look oblong, nice find congrats!

I think he was thinking of DDRs, not DDOs with his comment.
1938-S has a nice one:




1943: (This shows a side by side with a normal reverse and the DDR FS-801

Note to self: do not bother to check wheats for doubled issues...

I don't know how bad my eyes are but for those of us of a certain age; I got the whole alphabet...
