Hi.. please forgive the poor quality of the photo. I had to hold the coin microscope to the lens on a phone with a bad camera.. please also be respectful that I am new to the hobby.. many months ago I dealt with condescension and it turned me away from the hobby and the forum.. I enjoy hunting but enjoy respect and patience more.. with that said I have looked online and have not seen this before and it is in fact my first double die so I am skeptical.. please advise

This is called Machine Doubling. Please search for it here on the forum to understand it. It adds no value.

I agree with the Machine Doubling. The die that struck your coin is also showing extreme die wear, (note the outside edges of the devices, slope angled to the rims?) with the metal moving towards the rims. So it is not a doubled die.

I guess I'm always talking about die state of coins, alot. But what do I see that others and new ones may be missing. Well I found 8 different die examples for the reverse on this year so show the progression of die wear. These are not distinct die states, but the flow of wear that the die experiences, so you can start to see what I'm seeing on the die wear pattern.


You will note the flow lines, the die wear and the weakening of the devices. The note how as the die ages, it looses it freshness that it had when it started out new. (These are not all from the same die, but examples of how the dies age.) Dies don't age like wine, they age more like milk. LOL

One final thing before I delete my account.. and take these into coinstar so I can buy food.. I do not have wifi and data is limited.. I picked up the Red Book like it was suggested months ago when I was pushed away but it was not very helpful regarding errors and 95% of it was not really applicable to my situation.. how helpful will the Cherry Pickers Guide be as a physical reference for any errors I may stumble across since I will not be active or online? Is there a different noon..

I will like to thank everyone for not being condescending and for taking the time..

No disrespect.. after my own encounters and reading how people get talked down to I leave with this .. May I suggest that some of you need to lighten up and be nicer to new members.. a few bad apples can tarnish your community and leave a sour taste in your mouth.. more people like the ones who came to my post are needed because they were inciteful, patient and listed great sources and photos.. many respect for this group.. yes, I was treated that poorly and rudely my previous visit here.. perhaps I will come back because of this group but not worth the risk of running into things I saw being said today on other posts..

I will check back regarding any hopful replies about the Cherry Pickers Guide before signing off..

The reason we direct new people to the Red Book is to acquaint them to the types of coins found in general searching. You need to know the typical coins before you find abnormalities to help you find them. Not all coins are error coins, error coins are rare. You can go through boxes and boxes of coins before you find any sort of error coin, and even then, there are no guarantees you'll find one. It is not easy to find true error coins, but with time and patience and a lot of luck, maybe, just maybe you'll find one someday. I'll say this again because it's important, no all coins are error coins. Become familiar with what a normal coin should look like AND acquaint yourself with the minting process and you'll train your eyes to spot the abnormalities. Bonne chance!

Side note: error coins and variety coins are two different things. You are much more likely to find varieties than errors.
