All who responded to my first post either said this coin had no doubled die, or if it did, that it was not WDDO-001. Maybe it was the poor quality of the photos. My apologies for that. I have taken new photos, as you will see below.


Clear doubling at LIBER of LIBERTY

Doubling in IN of Motto. Arrows show the specific areas evidencing doubling.

Doubling in GO of GOD
Doubling in OD of GOD

Doubling of WE, with arrows pointing to doubling lines

Clear doubling at TRUS of TRUST

Clear doubling of UST of TRUST with arrows showing doubling lines

All of the doubling appears to be in a clockwise pattern.
Wexler describes the 1973 WDDO-001 as follows: "A class V CW spread from a pivot at about 5:00 shows on the letters of IGWT, and the LIBER of LIBERTY.
Variety Vista's listing for the 1973 DDO-001 is: "Light spread on IN GOD WE TRUST and LIBERTY."
Note- neither one of these descriptions mentions extra thickness in the doubling. If there was extra thickness in the variety, Wexler and Variety Vista would note same---as you routinely see in the listings.
Not only is the doubling on this coin consistent with the WDDO-001 descriptions, it also has the die markers Wexler indicates in his listing (I shared photos of those die markers in my prior posting).
So, as a former trial attorney, I believe that I have presented sufficient evidence to confirm that the coin is WDDO-001. If you are not convinced, don't just state "it's not WDDO-001" without any further comment. Please state the specifics for your opinion, either up or down. I, along with others who participate in CC, appreciate constructive comments, either positive or negative.
(BTW--I could not edit my original post because it had been more than the time limit of 24 hours; that's the reason I submitted this new post).
Thanks Coin Community!

All doubled dies should have extra thickness. It may not be noted on some as the separation or notching tends to be more distinct and easier to see.

I see no extra thickness, separation, or notching on your coin. Your arrows point to places on the coin that are being affected by the reflection of multiple lighting sources. Having two light sources on opposite sides of the coin can give the appearance of doubling when it is actually an issue with lighting/photography. A good way to differentiate between lighting issues and true doubling on the coin is 1) look for extra thickness and 2) take photos of the coin from different angles and if the "doubling" moves or changes that's no good.

I do not believe this coin is a doubled die. Keep looking though and you'll find one!

Was not a doubled die the last time you posted it, and it isn't now either.

It is Machine Doubling. Note it affects one outside edge direction on the coin on all the devices. (Usually in the same direction) Not a doubled die as mentioned. The devices should be enlarged, not normal size and reduced from the normal size:




Note on the motto, the spread in on the center of the devices on the motto, thus the devices are enlarged, not the same size as normal.

I agree, your coin is not a Double Die, it looks like a LDS strike,with contact marks and some DDD and plenty light glare doubling on devices. Safe to let it go.
