Not a waste of time, others may learn from it.

You'd never learn if you don't ask. We have all been and will be down this path and will never fully learn all that there is to learn about this amazing hobby

What I have seen is that these arrows are usually pointing out minute details of things such as die dots, die clashes, die cracks, die chips and die scratches in the effort to give markers which can identify a particular variety


That's makes more sense for me now, Scuba, thanks. I was thinking the arrows were pointing at every doubled spot and it was driving me nuts trying to see/figure out what was doubled!

Also, what your thinking that are errors are actually varieties.


Thanks for the links, John, I'll be doing a bit of reading and learning today. I think I should also learn all of the correct jargon!

Moving the coin so that light shines from every angle tends to disprove a lot of doubled dies.


Parnelli, I agree with you on that note. At one angle it looks like something, but turn the coin a bit and there is nothing! The light really does play tricks on these shiny coins. I think maybe I get too excited and think I have something more special. :)

That seems to me worth a lot more than a long explanation without them.


Coop, I completely agree with the idea behind the photographs, they speak a thousand words without saying anything at all. So many of us are visual learners, and you are certainly appreciated with all of your graphics. I'm not new to coins, I collected Colorado merchant trade tokens for about 35 years. It's a big difference though, trade tokens do not have so many varieties or errors since they were stamped in such small numbers. I am however new to collecting legal tender! :) It's a whole new learning curve for me, but I am definitely enjoying it. I ask so many questions because I definitely want the right answer instead of just making up a misinformed decision on my own.

As others have said, don't give up the ghost.

It does get tricky because some MD is strong and easy to tell while others not so much. Flat and shelf-like sounds simple and will be recognized when it finally clicks to newer collectors.

I've been back at collecting only about 7 years and I'm not too proud to admit it still gets me sometimes. And when it does .

Look at this image below and see if it helps you to visualize and compare MD and Die Deterioration to a Normal coin and a true DDO (I used the G from a 1995P DDO-001 since the MD shows up well on your images of the G.)

It doesn't come close to Coops Side-By-side images but please let me know if this helps or what I might do to help see it better!

Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups. We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

Every little bit helps! I've been studying photographs of doubled-die coins, and my eyes are starting to really see the difference now.

Looks like I'll have to add different images, because I didn't notice the "D" mintmark. But the coin answer is still the same. MD. But I'll make a side by side of the OP's images with the 003 DDO. That will help a lot more.





Note the differences in size of the devices. On the DDO's images all of the devices that were hub doubled are enlarged. On the OP's coin, they were showing normal sized devices with Machine Doubling. Look for the spread on the centers of the devices (enlargement of the devices) and don't look at the outsides of the devices with the flattened edges as that is where the Machine Doubling hides out.
