Saw on eBay today, a 1947 ML Silver Dollar sell in an ANACS slab with DDO on the label next to the ML.

I have seen double HP coins but what does DDO stand for? There was no close up on any part of the coin so I could not figure out what it was about.

Doubled Die Obverse.

The original die was engraved with a double image so the coin will show this on certain devices. On the coin you mention, it is the designer's initials which are doubled.


Kind of hard to see in the pic from CoinsandCanada.com below, so I added some arrows to show some of the doubling:

- When I value " being right" more than what IS right, I am then right...a fool.
- How much squash could a Sasquatch squash if a Sasquatch would squash squash?
- Real men play Fizzbin.

So in this case double die obverse and double HP are saying the same thing. Makes sense now. The 1947 ML I own is a double HP and is ICCS graded and marked x2 HP. I had not heard of the DDO letters before so thanks for the info.
