this 1887 Cent sure is an oddity. It appears that it is a Dbl MD on each side?
or how can you explain this. looks like it is the same all around
and some on the rev side.

The guys working on the floor must have jumped right on tightening up that die. I've looked at thousands of 1887's and never seen an OBV MD like that for that date. Even rarer is to have BOTH dies loose in their keepers. A great coin that's a sure keeper. Unfortunately, it looks like someone cleaned it at some time.

Not MD IMO. Double struck. Deepest part of obverse shows clearly why I say double struck. Not MDD.

I can see this, without much movement of the coin for the second strike, it does sort of have that "flat field doubling" look to it, that you see on some nickel dollar specimen strikes of the early 1970s...

I'm certainly not an expert on errors, but I can't see that as double struck. It just looks like the die keeper was loosy goosy and out of adjustment .. or the planchet moved.

Thanks everyone.
I must say I am surprised about MM's statement it being Double struck.
Was wondering about how MD could have happened ...but...
I take it..
I would guess ICCS would only mark it as "cleaned" and would otherwise most likely not comment?
Maybe it will take a journey to another TPG.
thank you all

Why send it to a TPG? It will cost you double or triple for a single person's opinion, if they grade it at all due to the cleaning. You have a real scarcity there and it cost you a pittance. Why spend $50+ on a piece of paper, some words and plastic?

Okie ,
you are right.and point well taken.
My question here in simple language:
am just curious if ICCS would mention this or not? seems to me they have advanced to a web site (or whatever one can call that). Maybe they also progressed to some advanced "grading"?
After all, the facts are undisputed on the coin.
I think CCCS would mark it as what it is in their hard slab.

Some TPG's will charge $50-$100 extra for a variety or error. You should find out before you send it in
