Hey guy's,

I wanted to know if this 1955 penny is a

poor man's double die?


It as a weird look that a can't get to

picture properly on photos.

Also I tried to identify it through varietyvista

but my skills are just too weak to do so...

: (


Learning, slowly but surely tho...

Thanks for the hand!

Looks like a poor man's doubled,which is really a worn die issue. Nice eye appeal also.

The Poor Man's Doubled Die isn't even a Doubled Die. Just common Die Deterioration Doubling from a worn die issue.

Agree with all comments, but your pics are too soft for me to be certain.

But there is no premium for these. They are just subject to extreme die wear. Anyone buying these for a premium to make up his whole collection, would be the poor man when trying to sell these. In a bu roll of 50 tubed cents, there were 19 of these from several different dies. Not a premium coin in my book.
