Hi,

Would it be possible to tell me if this is a possible DDO?

Many letters seems to have been punched a few times.

Pictures are not great, wish I could have a good microscope.

Thanks for your help.

Welcome,

What you are seeing on your coin is Machine Doubling. It happens when the Obverse or Reverse die shifts or vibrates on the way back up from the strike and taps the high points on the design while cutting into them. When that happens it leaves a shelf like appearance and makes the design thinner than what it was intended to be.
Aggressively searching Canadian Small Cents on a daily basis since 2018.

Some of my Discoveries.

1976 Queen Elizabeth II 1 Cent DDO http://www.coincommunity.com/forum/...IC_ID=373627
1970 Queen Elizabeth II 1 Cent DDR http://www.coincommunity.com/forum/...IC_ID=364301

Thanks JohnWayne007.

I find it very hard differencing a DD or Machine Doubling.

Hope time will help.
