As many of you know, reverse doubled dies on the wheat cents are kind of my weakness.

This one stood out to me a little bit, so I thought I would post it.

I have a weakness for these as well, so my answer might be refuted, but it looks like a wee bit of circulation flattening to me.

This is a little tough but the dots do look slightly elongated.

I'll go with circulation wear, no extra thickness on the L or U.

What do the stems look like?

Thank you all for the feedback, here are the wheat tips as requested.

Honestly even with stronger DDRs, the doubling on the wheat tips is something I can never spot so I've got no idea if they're slightly doubled or not.

I'm leaning towards a minor DDR but I'm no professional

Thank you TCD, let's see what the others say.

EDIT: Should I honestly just throw it back? It might be impossible to figure this out, as @CS said in a previous post.

I mean, it could still be one, but whether or not it is, it's still a Wheat cent, I'd keep it.

I checked Coppercoins and it looks like you have 1DR-005. When you compare the L, U and S in EPU, you can see similarities despite the circulation wear.

It's missing the die markers so I don't believe so.
