Good Sunday evening everyone. I wanted to share this with you and what appear to be a double ear .I just wanted everyone's input on it. It seems to have a third lobe looping down from the second lobe but I cannot focus in to show it. Here are a few pictures and I will go with what you all have to say about it and I thank you in advance...

Not the doubled ear variety. It looks as if the bottom of the ear took a hit.

I thought that much as well but there is not a single mark that would make me lean towards that but I just thought I would throw it out there and see what you all thought and I will go with a hit I guess....

Skippy, I have seen almost the exact same mark on different years on the lobe area. I think the reason we see this so much in that area is because it is the highest point on the cent.

Note the area you are looking at is flattened, not raised. On something doubled it would be raised, not a reduction of a normal device. Here are a few doubled ears.

Feel free if you don't grasp something. I've been through many subjects over and over, but that just helps me be a better instructor. I have lots of images to grab quickly. So feel free to ask. Here is a list of threads that discuss many subject with hundreds of images.
