I bought a roll of uncirculated 1954d wheat pennies today. I was so excited to look through them, clearly I'm new to coin collecting, but I absolutely love it. Double dies are extremely confusing even after reading everything about them..looking at examples..watching videos. Reminds me of when I couldnt tell the differance between a small date 1982D or large date...I looked up the differance between the two, and much was about how the numbers were aligned, digits higher or even. Then I came here and saw the best advice, LOOK AT THE 2.. The curve was unmistakable, so thank you for sharing. For those that can spot a DD ..what is your dead giveaway? And I'm posting a pic of my pennies, some look brand new like light gold color and a couple look brand new but more copper color, what is better?

Color preference is a personal preference thing. Color will change on most all of them over time anyway. Condition, date and mm are the more important things. That is a nice looking lot. Remember it is all about your enjoyment.

Thank you just1dreamr, that makes sense. Because I also bought a bunch of pennies that I absolutely loved from the 1930s because of their color that looked like rainbows on them. They were in the "junk" penny box. No value, but they are so pretty. So I completely understand

Copper Cents are an animal in it's own place in the world of numismatics . They exhibit many different colors ranging from light brown to bright orange and everything in between depending on them being circulated or Uncirculated .
You have many choices to pick the color you like .
Don't take life too seriously and remember it is just a passing fad ......

When searching OBW cents that are BU, you might want to check out the various locations of doubled dies, and RPM to know what you are looking for for that year/mint. That will help train your eye. When you can get used to spotting what is doubled/RPM, then it becomes confusing. But eventually you will get your eye trained to spot the difference.

A lot of new collectors don't know what to look for, but after check out the sites for ID-ing the what they look like that will help. A lot po new ones look at a coin, realize they didn't find something. Then they look harder at the edges of the devices and think I found a doubled die, when really it is Machine Doubling. So don't forget to look up information first. It will help train you on what to look for. On this site when you type in CoopHome on the search or even click on the one I just typed, it will take you to a search. If it opens to page two, then you will see the updated lists of subjects I've posted in threads previously. That is also a help to new ones.

Ask questions.
Try the search feature on the upper left to find information about different things already posted.
All here are willing to assist you. But images are important when you find something.

I like Coop's advice. Take his advice, and start out easy first.
