*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

I was doing some variety hunting, when I came across this super oddity. I have no clue how to even classify this. Any input is HUGELY appreciated!

(Sorry in advance for the photos!)

This is pretty curious, it could possibly be faulty plating causing gas bubbles between the copper and zinc, they're incredibly well placed though. I'm hesitant to call it doubling because you'd expect it to shift in one direction IIRC

"Doubling" does not have to occur in a single direction on a coin. Die deterioration allows for a radial progression of "doubling".

Sorry, spruett, I should have been more specific, I was referring to hub doubling when I said doubling. I dont think you'd see hub doubling that is shifted vertically on one device and horizontally on another.

Is it even worth grading?

I can't really see anything past that harsh lighting.

No, DON'T get it graded. You would be wasting more money than what the coin is worth. The pictures have too much glare to determine what it is. Better pictures would help.

NO GRADING NEEDED! It looks like a simple case of die deterioration that is causing an optical illusion
