One thing to keep in mind is Proof coins are struck twice, so the chances of Machine Doubling happening is double. It sure does look like a Proof to me.

Definitely a proof coin. There were numerous doubled working hubs for 1961 (meaning most 1961 cents have the same doubling) and this is an example of one.

The '9' is normal with the mark on that digit. They all have it that year. Proof and business strikes.

Wexler list three Working Hub issues for that year:

Quote:

1961 1 WWHO-001 Doubled Working Hub
Description: A spread towards the center shows on the letters of LIBERTY.
1961 1 WWHO-002 Doubled Working Hub
Description: A spread towards the center shows on the letters of IGWT decreasing in spread from left to right.
1961 1 WWHO-003 Doubled Working Hub
Description: Strong extra thickness shows on the date, LIBERTY, and IGWT.

But I would like to see images of LIBERTY. I feel it is a DDO, just need to see that area to see which listed die it might be. Also the EPU on the reverse.
1961 1 Pr WDDO-005

POOF! LOL
Thanks for the added image. Nice one by the way but I can't seem to enlarge it enough to see much detail.

The odd U of TRUST seems similar to WWHO-002 but only half is visible on DD.
GOD on yours seems very similar to WWHO-002 also but without the separation. This could be because yours is a later die state.

How do the first T and S of TRUST compare to the images on DD for the WWHO-002
