I found this earlier & yeah I know it's all beat up & not exactly in pristine condition lol but it's a habit to look at every coin that passes through my hands. Anyways, I know that on several other coins The Tell-Tale sign for being a doubled die is the raised line just above top bar on the seven. Well this one I spotted with my bare eyes. but on Brian's list the only thing he has listed are 1971 s proof nickels.

Hm, may wanna get those eagle eyes of yours checked out. I see no evidence of a doubled die. What you're seeing above the 7 is just damage. A class II DDO would have extra thickness on all the devices, possibly split serifs, and even separation lines if it were as major as 1971-P DDO-001 on variety vista.
My best finds:
1996 DDO-001/FS-101: http://goccf.com/t/372066
1995 DDO-001/FS-101: http://goccf.com/t/376071#3225244

Your vision may be that good,but you need to know what your seeing and what to look for, WADR. I see no DDO.

Enjoy the great vision while you can. The day will come when you get down to 20/20 and below. Ask me how I know! Its one of the huge curses of having great eyesight - the impact of losing it is huge. No glasses can "restore" it. I never needed a magnifying glass in my life before 55 years old! The world will always "look fuzzy" now.

Anyway - spend some time here researching Machine Doubling, Die Deterioration, and doubled dies to see what a real doubled die looks like. Our member Coop has some great graphics showing the difference.

Die wear starting to move towards the rim on the die. Just part of the aging process. The devices will start to enlarge closest to the rim direction as the die ages.

You can see this happening as the die ages. Note how the devices are getting wider as the die ages?


We see this more on the older style of dies. On the new dies, the fields move towards the rims.


On the single squeeze the fields move in that direction. I call that Die Deterioration. Both are die wear, but both show different things happening. Hope this helps.

I didn't say it was a d d o I said that on other coins the only identification that it's a DD is a small bump or line just above the horizontal bar on the seven I can't remember what coins it was on probably a penny. But I wasn't saying it was a DD I was just merely asking if there was any relation

And its not damage, I don't know what you're looking at but what I'm talking about is just above the seven right where the horizontal and vertical bar meet it's raised. But either way if it's nothing it's nothing I was just asking a question

I understand your question. You should look at 1970-S Lincoln cents on any of the attributor's sites to see examples of an extra bar above the 7. It occurs on other Lincolns in that general time frame as well. Unfortunately I know very little about Jefferson nickels so can't really help you decide if doubling could be what is going on with your coin, but given that the 7's are perpendicular between the two coins it really can't be the same class of doubled die. The bar over 7 Lincolns are rotational and this would be doubling towards the rim.
