I am still penny roll searching and I came across quite a few 1955 P Lincoln cents, most of which are in very good condition for circulated coins but there are some that look like they have errors.
This is one of those Lincoln Cents. It is not the big king double die, but there is doubling taking place on this coin. I am still learning so, all feed back is appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your help and guidance.

Need better, pics close up and clearer. Recommend using loop w/ camera combo or Microscope (usb ).
My guess though is Machine Doubling,but then I'm still a student of Numismatics.

Coin looks cleaned Pics are out of focus and you need to crop them before posting. Also,a few too many photos.Need to filter your light source so there is less glare.The better the pics you post,the better we can help you. It takes practice.

John tell me about it. Just starting using a new microscope and pics starting to get better.
I use Photoscape (https://download.cnet.com/PhotoScap...0703122.html .
I like it for editing pics and re-sizing .

Just extreme die wear. You will see a lot of this on the 1950's wheat cents because they continued to use the dies past normal retirement. Creating a lot of stuff that is interesting, but to a variety collector, not a variety. These are die events.
