While looking through some 1999d Lincoln cents I found one that stuck out. This cent is pretty much normal except the last 9 on the date. I know on some cents the doubling is extremely miniscule and am curious if this isn't considered doubled and I don't believe its machine doubled, then what caused this? Experts please advise!

It's not a Doubled Die. The overall size of the nine is the same as the other nine. A Doubled Die would be larger.

@CoinMasters, I think what kind of threw me was the fact that the bottom part of the 9 is wider than the bottom of the other two 9's and there is a slight separation there as well. What could have caused this then? I am eager to learn the discrepancies of this wonderful hobby.

There are two major culprits, one is MD or Strike Doubling. Where the die strikes the coin more than once and flattens the edge of the the nine that was made on the first strike. The other culprit Is wear on the die, where the edge of the nine is worn on the die (recessed on the die) and creates worthless doubling on the coin. The one you really want is the Doubled Die, where the doubling was accidentally put on the die when it was being made. It shows on coins as an "enlarged device". In other words there would be the normal nine and alongside it would be another. The other would almost the same height and same color as the normal one.

Yes sir, Thank You! I do have a few doubled die coins. I just found a 2015 DDO the other day and it's a really nice one!

Just like acne, there can be varying degrees of alteration on coins. This is a very mild case, Classic Machine Doubling leaves an outline around the devices.


Push/slide doubling:

Ejection doubling:

Happens when the coin is being removed from the chamber. Most of the time it affects just the tops of the devices.

Metal striation from the dies moving during the strike:




This is often see on very light MD examples.

But all these fall under the name of Machine Doubling. They can vary from strike to strike by a loose machine. But all are caused by the machine after the strike by die movement.

Looks like Slight DDD, and slight MD. Otherwise a normal coin.

Dude what? Noo way that's like exactly what I got except it's on every part of the coin! Machine Doubling is sooo unfair and gets me hype every time for no reason but I'm getting better and better at spotting it thank God!
