@Cory865, well done: that is really thorough picture-taking. I don't see any doubling, but is there maybe a die crack coming off of the bottom left corner of the Lincoln Memorial?

some MD... or something. From what I have been learning you are looking for the devices to show bloating and fatness. while what you are seeing has sharpness or less thick devices.

Something like that... Someone more experienced here will help set you straight. Took me sometime to get, cause I wanted to see doubling so bad.

On thr 'ONE', the 'N' looked interesting. But it looks like the 'O' took a hit, sliding across the other devices. The obverse looks like a bit is sliding also happened there. You were looking for the spread on the tops of the devices, but there was no spread. Just the rub lines. I could tell you were listening to my comments before. I applaud that. Now we need to look for the widening spread. The 1983 obverse doubled dies are tough. On the date, you will see the date often affected. Look for differences on the loops on the '8's.

Note the spread on the 9? Also note the 8s. The outside loop on the 8 is wider.

Same thing.
These devices show spread:



Hope this helps.

There are 3 die cracks. I would keep it for the cracked skull and how nice it is.
