DDD (no that doesn't stand for Drunk-Drivers-Driving) What you have is Die Deterioration Doubling. As the die ages on the single squeeze dies, the low profile show a raised area on the field next to the devices. This can be seen on one/two areas or even show on all areas on both sides of the coin. Here is what I mean by affecting two areas:

On the obverse when this die wear is noticed, the doubling will be on the fields on the date area to the right. On Liberty it on the left side.and on the motto on the tops of the motto. On the reverse it is also on the outside edge of the devices. Sometimes on all devices. Tops of USA and Bottoms of ONE CENT. While it looks interesting, it is just as common as wrinkles on a Senior. All dies develop these when they get old. (sound familiar) Just caused by a die that is showing its age. On a doubled die, the devices are enlarged starting with the first coin. So doubled dies are a lot more rare. (Proof doubled dies are limited to 3K coins as the dies are only used to perform 6K strikes per die. Proof coins are struck twice for cents. Sometimes more on larger coins to enhance the strike.

Thank you, thank you. I wasn't sure, but it is good to know what it is and what causes it.
I've seen this same effect on nickels but discounted it as Machine Doubling.

Thank you for your assistance!!

I find using images along with the description helps all to visualize it better with an explanation. Much better than yes or no answers. While yes or no answers the question, the explanation helps the learner to see it rather than just get an answer.
