I've read and seen pictures of the master die doubling present on most 1972 cents. However, for how this manifests on the date Wexler says it shows on the horizontal bar of the 2. The coin I'm looking at looks to have some doubling in the upper curve, plus a little on the 7. Can anyone tell me if this is normal for the doubled master die or if this is something else? Thanks.

Here are two photos from an angle. Under the tip of the two isn't gunk, I'm pretty sure it's part of the doubling, be it normal or no. Still not so sure about the 7, but maybe it's just die chips like you say. Anyhow, thanks for the input, this one has stalled me a bit today.
