I was coin rolling and found a novelty coin!

Although it has been counter stamped, is there worth still as a DDO? On the reverse there is a large mash on the reverse, but I assume that's from the Florida stamp?

Lay it on me!

Not a DDO, but a nice example of Machine Doubling. Note the shelf-like "doubling" that doesn't actually widen the devices. As for the reverse, just damage from the counterstamp. Still a keeper in my book, though, just as a novelty.

Thanks @Numisma !

"Shelving" is a great explanation to distinguish MD and D/D!

BUT using this terminology, this would be considered to be MD also? Its a 1995P

I apologize for the misinformation, definitely still am trying to train my eyes!

I appreciate it!

As mentioned it is Machine Doubling, it shows on both sides of the coin. The area on the right side of the memorial is damaged because of the counter stamp, damaging that area on the reverse. On the left side of the memorial, die polishing removed most on the false column. But the counter stamp would be a unique show and tell to show to a new collector. So keep these oddities in mind when deciding whether to save or spend for new collectors. I use a lot of images. (Almost 12k) A still adding more daily.

I appreciate it @coop! The one with Florida (to which this topic was focused on), from what you and @numisma told, is MD!

The other pictures I sent in my most recent reply are from another penny, a 1995P! Is this another example of MD?

This FLA counter-stamp coin probably has more value to counter-stamp collectors than Doubled Die collectors (if it was one, which it is not). Counter-stamps are fun, but destroy regular numismatic value.

Suggest not mixing two (or more) coins in one topic thread--makes it somewhat difficult to track the issue(s) and responses. Thanks.
