Hello, new to the forum here. I was just wondering if anyone would know if this 1952-2002-P 1 Cent Magnetic coin would be worth sending in to be graded? I am new to collecting and just recently received my usb microscope in the mail for better close ups and I noticed on this one there is doubling on both the 1952 date and 2002 date. In the close up picture it is a bit dark due to lighting but the coin looks a lot newer in hand like the front and back photos. Any info would be appreciated

Hi, a high enough magnify will always show some sort of distortion these circulation coins are made at 300 to 400 coins a minute or faster a perfect coin is not the RCM goal. If you can't see doubling with naked eye, they add very little value only wrong planchets, real double struck coins with two or more strikes, mules, brokerages, ect. are worth grading but keep on looking

Not worth getting graded... looks like die deterioration doubling and will never be worth more than a few cents.

I agree with my colleagues.
No sence in sending in to be graded, it wouldn't be recognized.
Just DDD and if you have to magnify something
that much to see it, not worth saving. I'm sure
you can find a small defect in most coins with that
much magnification. You will probably get pretty much
the same answer in the other Forum you posted in.

Anyway to the CCF
Don't argue with an idiot, he will beat you with experience.

Thank you guys for the replies, I had posted to another forum around the same time I posted to this one because I was not too sure how active this one was. Regarding the value I just wanted to know if it would be woth grading to put into my collection I had no infentions on trying to sell it but I also dident want a coin in my collection that was only worth face value so thank you guys for clearing that up for me! I have been collecting coins for a while now but in a sense its more like hoarding the cool/unique ones I found in my change over the years, so I am still learning what to look out for with errors and varieties

Your coin is worth one cent, having reasonable high tech equipment for purchase today at bargain prices leads to finding all kinds of minor doubling, clashes that previous people would miss. If you wait a few hours or tomorrow, I will try to post a really cool multi- struck coin.
