These are really tough to see unless you have some normal coins handy to compare the thickness of the lower bar of the E in WE. But a good die marker is the tilted mint mark so you know when to head up to the WE and give it a closer look.

Pretty minor class 6, and lighter than some that I've had declined as "too minor". The bit that looks like horizontal lines showing a bit of separation on the WE TRUST is not class II doubling, but some raising due to a jiggle in the strike, so not all coins of this variety will show that.

Thanks folks! Just some nice coins and good varieties in that roll. I didn't photograph the WDDO-002 or RPM-026. Still a few RPMs that I haven't tried to work out yet as well.

Thanks all Happy to be able to show some nice examples of things to make the varieties easier to see and understand.

MOS, re-read the text from the original post as I addressed that bit above the T there. I knew it would look like doubling so figured to mention that it isn't.
