DD on "REG" and the "Dot" Die Chip on her Eye. Look like I got luck with Canadian coin than US coins. I got these Canada coins out of Pennies BRs and 10 out of 10000 I got Canadian coin DDO.



She cries when she sees her name DD

Nope. Looks like Machine Doubling, since you can see the reduction of the devices and it's shelflike in appearance.

Your answer this time is not convincing me "E n V" It is not shelflike look at the diviced at the notches and how rounded the dd on the dot. Give me something else more concrete. Those letters very thin so the DD is clearly separated at the notches.

The die chip at the edge of the eye and possibly at the edge of the mouth are nice finds, you can see on Coinsandcanada.com site (Hope this is ok) that the years 1978 and 1979 are well known for double dates not Doubled Dies but I think they are just DDD or MD. I think you might see this in other areas on the coin. They are still collectible but many only collect higher grades. If I am wrong on any point my apologies.

Doesn't look like hub doubling to me. It probably is Jud MD, if you think MD is common on Lincoln cents, Canadian cents will maybe give them a run for their money.

1960s and 1970s Canada cents are notorious for MD and die shifts.

The R or REGINA is most intriguing, but the photos need to be magnified to come to any conclusion....

The 1977-1979 Canadian 1-cent coins are notorious for die deterioration doubling and over polishing of the dies... without better photos, I cannot confirm if it is a doubled die.

I vote for severe die deterioration doubling... the doubled elements are enlarged... if it was Machine Doubling (MD) then I might expect to see the beads doubled as well.

However, I digress, I would need to see a mint state example, to be sure...

It looks like die deterioration to me. The "relief varies as to which direction .. if it was machine they would mostly be the same. Definitely not DDO'

Just found this from Mr.COOP. I think this 1978 Canada cent is fall into this catergory " Flat Doubling"

Nope. Flat field doubling happens on coins that are struck twice, and for some reason, also on nickel dollars. What I see here (and has been mentioned to you by SPP, the expert on errors) is die deterioration doubling. Enlarged doubling in an outward direction is a tell-tale sign.
