The one area of error finding relating to cents that I have the most difficulty with is DDRs on Wheat Cents.

Based on photos I see, it's very difficult for me to tell the difference between a regular cent, and a moderately thickened reverse. I just don't know what to do about it really as the photos I've seen just don't really help me.

So I'm asking, could someone please put up side by side photos of this coin, versus an average DDR?

Thanks so much!


Base Coin for Comparison (1940 D):












Coins I'm suspicious of being doubled (Again I do not know because I have little knowledge when it comes to the wheatie DDRs, so I'm trying to simply learn).

I want to cover this in one post so I won't be suspicious of coins that obviously aren't doubled, and then posting them. Just want to clear this up.

I'm not asking you all to attribute each coin that I post on this thread. I just think that you all have the experience of being able to look at the E PLURIBUS UNUM die marker and say if it's doubled or not, just like I can when it comes to Machine Doubling, but I do not with thickened doubled die reverses on the wheat cents, because I've never tried to search for DDRs on Wheat Cents.


1944:





1942 D:





1941 (Extreme Wear):





Thanks a lot for the help and I'm sorry that this thread is so long and full of photos.

I think one of the easiest ways to tell if a LWC is a DDR is the dots in between EPU. The dots on a DDR will be elongated, much like an egg shape. A normal dot will be like the first picture.

Ah thanks a lot you two! I would've been lost for quite awhile if I didn't know that.

Thanks again, massive help!

The 1941 might be a Class 6 DDR.

Side question: I'm dealing with a lot of heavily circulated cents, if the dots were faded and you couldn't see them, where else should I look?

Thank you very much for the images and explanation Coop.

I'll be saving this thread to my personal files so if I ever need to, I can revisit your post.
