Hello so I found this in my searching it looks to me to have doubling in the date and I can't got it to show in pictures but it seems the obverse was struck hard and it is almost bowl shaped so when it is laying on the reverse the edges don't touch the table surface this coin is in real good condition so I don't believe it is post mint

Maybe the date looks a little doubled because of the lighting that you are using?

Going by these pics,it looks like DDD. Common in the 80's.

Gotta get better pictures. These pictures aren't good enough and won't cut it.

Ok I do believe it is my angle and lighting that made it appear doubled but it is also concave on one side so when it is on its reverse it's edges don't make contact with a flat surface all the way around what would this be called it is almost impossible for me to get a photo that will show it
