i probably spend several hours a night studying the differences between various coins I have & the ones on wexlers site in an attempt to get a grip on this doubling thing & judging from what ive seen thats just a very small fraction of the game of errors. anyways I came across this quarter & several of her twins. but this one has all the markers of being Doubled (that my green eyes seen). so Let the constructive criticism begin lol
Oh & the picture labeled #2 is the one I believe to be doubled. The picture labeled #1 is the only picture that doesn't belong it came from one of her twins.

Unfortunately, that's not a Doubled Die Reverse. The Die Deterioration Doubling tricked you. This Die Deterioration Doubling tutorial I made should help you understand it better. http://goccf.com/t/336470

Very good photos though. Just a bit too much glare and looks to be just a bit out of focus. What is your set up?

unfortunately your tutorial wasnt anything I havent already read. but thanks..my problem is that when I have something that looks identical to something wexler has, you guys say its die det. I'm an artist I draw life like portraits of people I was also an i.e.d. hunter in iraq. I have one heck of an eye for detail and noticing slight differences between like objects. yet you guys leave me scratching my darn head

The DDR's on the States quarters and the ATB Quarters are more in the centers of the design.

Earlobe and central area of the reverse design.

For these locations you need to check doubleddie.com to review where to look for the locations of the doubled dies. On the reverses of the ATB Quarters, the devices are incuse in the outer ring. These show Machine Doubling 70% of the time. People think they are doubled dies, but they are not. I've yet to see a legit DDT on these ATB incuse devices on the outside ring of the reverses.





So researching where to look for doubled dies on these two series will save you a lot of time searching in areas where doubled dies are not found. The more you look at the site, the more it will help you to know where to look for these.

Wexler describes it as "Doubling shows as extra,heavy,mild,light thickness" on this or that for many coins. thats what I was going by on that virginia coin judging by the year 2000 & the heavy extra thickness it had compared to other like examples

Jsertl,
I think you are going to need to put a filter over the lights. I have two scopes and I had to block off all but one light at the 12k position and put a white filter on that bulb. Sometimes I turn off the onboard lights and use a hand held LED flashlight that I also have a filter on.
