Im pretty sure I just found a 1951 doubled die obverse and thought I would share it with you guys, and get your opinions.




They say coin roll hunting is like a box of chocolates, you never know what your gonna get.... I think it went something like that, I was too busy looking at coins.

This is my very first error coin I found that got me hooked.

Here are some close ups of some of the places that are doubled

Definitely hard to tell due to condition, but the notching makes me think doubled die.

There is a known DDO for the 1951 1-cent obverse. See the 70th edition of the Charlton Catalogue, the one with the small cent variety section.

I do believe this is the DDO variety. Quite scarce, I have been hunting for one in AU grade or better for quite some time, with no success yet.

Does this 1 in the date look normal to you guys? At first the 5 I just assumed was Machine Doubling but look at the bottom of the 1...

This is the reverse of the same coin..

Maybe it just my eyes, but I think your arrows should be on the west side of the five (straight stalk). The five and the one look to me to be moving in the same direction corresponding to the doubling seen under both digits.

SPP-Ottawa, thank you for mentioning the 70th ed. Charlton Catalogue... I have older and newer, but not the 70th edition. I have seen your reference of it before and decided I should have it in my library. It took me a bit to find it, but I did and have already ordered it. Thanks again!
