I was going through some old rolls I formerly put back to check for condition and possible grading and after sorting by grade while checking for noticeable DDs by eye I decided to get the scope out and check Variety Vista:

Am I seeing things? Let us see what the experts here say since I am new at varieties and errors.

Description: Light spread on LIB of LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, and 70 of date.

Comments: Obverse is ODV-025 (Large date).







Kindly let me know what you think it is greatly appreciated.

I have been over Variety Vista Photographs of this coin for some time and all sections in Variety Vista {1970S DDO-002) - the doubling is very subtle even on the O at vista but the many tell(s) are the spread on L IB - and IN GOD WE TRUST, very subtle must see pictures on variety vista

Note the mint mark location on the coin and the one on the site. When they are in different locations, then they are not that dies examples of a doubled die. They are from different dies.

I agree I see machine doubling on the date and mint mark in the same direction, so that is not a RPM.

So you have a 1970-S Large date cent. (common) The 1968-1972 cents have a lot of machine doubling issues those years.


This MD is caused after the strike, when the die shifts a bit damaging the devices. Altered by the machine. This happens to normal and doubled die coins.

FrankenCoin;
On your first date photo it shows MD on the "0" of the date and the mint mark.

Yes thank you @coop I was referencing the DDO-002 with lower Center mint mark and did not post the link by mistake.

In this batch I believe I have also ran across several RPMs S/SW and will post pictures in another post title dedicated to RPMs.

Thanks every one for you thoughts and opinions.
