Is this coin a doubled die? Both sides have a plethora of repetition. I need help with this one. I looked through a jewelers loop on the obverse the doubling seems to repeating in clockwise with a slight drop direction. On the reverse its repeating just in a clockwise direction. All knowledge is greatly appreciated.





I hope the pics will be sufficient to work with. I couldn't seem to get a clear shot.

Need better pics to better answer. Coin looks to be plated, maybe polished.

Your photos have too much contrast, from either photoshoping or harsh lighting. Can you zero in to exactly where you see doubling? Your coin seems extra, extra shiny, from a recent plating or polishing somehow. There are too many pot marks on your coin that don't match the pristine high gloss on your coin. Glare is causing you problems photographing. Providing photos here and uploading them are difficult, I knowm but once you get the hang of it, it becomes easier, I promise.

If you provide additional photos, but sure to please rename them... close-ups of the areas you see doubling would be most helpful.

I took some new photos of the coin. I don't know if this makes a difference in the condition or the marks on it, but it was in a novelty keychain from a gas station. I removed it bc of the glare.

The 1968-1972 cents have a lot of Machine Doubling on them. These are not doubled dies, but machine damage to these cents after the strike.

Thank you. Thats what I figured.. I started questioning myself on the "B" and the "E" in liberty. I know these pics are blurry. I can't seem to get a good clean shot. How are you Mr. Coop? Its nice to speak with you again sir.

Photos are somewhat soft and underexposed. A filtered light source (and higher resolution) might improve the images.

I know this isn't the correct place, but my coin highlight this year thus far:
I found a 2019 Lowell 'W' in a Fed roll.
It made me so happy.

JJN1944 - thank you for the suggestions. I will try them. I have tremors as well so getting a stable shot and correct lighting is hard for me. As well as I'm no photographer so I will google this to learn how. LOL
thank you, hopefully you will see in my next search for assistance.

Ahhh, now I understand what's going on... it's a novelty coin! Most likely it was plated, which accounts for the super shiny surfaces you had to work with! That's tough for even a pro!

Try photographing close-up some regular cent you might have around, I bet you'll find it easier to work with. Practice makes perfect. Now when you find a coin that interests you, you'll br able to photograph it without of the trouble you had from the plated novelty coin. I bet thinks will be easy going from here out!

PamV: Still helping everyone I know, to help them to learn. My plan is to help them see, what I see on their coins. This is much better than giving yes or no answers. Sure it answers their questions. But Try to let them know what I see, so they can learn to see it also.

Hint on improving images on this coin: The light angle is too low. You are getting the reflection off the sides of the higher devices. With the light over the tops of the devices at 12:00 is a better way to illuminate. Also using something to diffuse the images will cut the glare and help others see what you are seeing. (An image of your setup will help me to see how you can improve your images.
