*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

I found this 1969 S. It looks to be a DDO but without any doubling on the IN GOD WE TRUST and minor doubling on the T and the Y in LIBERTY. Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry, that's Machine Doubling. the easiest way to tell on the 1969S doubled die is that on the real one, the mintmark should NOT be doubled.

Appears to be classic '69 S Machine Doubling. I have a tube full of these.

Agreed, it's Machine Doubling. The 1969-S Lincoln Memorial Cents were notorious for having Machine Doubling on them.

Not always true. Some of the real DDO's also show Machine Doubling on the mintmark.

Don't just look at the date. The other devices are showing even stronger hub doubling on those devices.
