Can anyone tell me exactly what I should be looking for on this coin? I am having a lot of trouble even seeing it on PCGS Coinfacts. Thanks in advance.

I just looked at it in the PCGS CoinFacts app. If you go on the 1945 DDR Nickel in the app, and swipe left on the pictures, you will find a picture showing the doubling. The Monticello and Cents are doubled. Good luck!

CoinHunter27..I think you are referring to FS801, in which the doubling is pronounced. I just can't see it in FS803.

I can't seem to find the FS803. I'll keep a lookout.

Thanks Tanman2001, I still am having trouble seeing it in those photos, but it just could be me.

It's a Class II/VI, so the doubling is on the outer letters. It has extra thickness perpendicular to the rim (towards the rim or towards the center).



Notice how much thicker the bottom of the letters are on FS-803 (left).
