Hi All.

A lot of things going on here...

I have pointed out the die chips (galore)on the reverse. There is one on the ear and eyebrow on the obverse but hard to see with what I think is PMD. And maybe some doubling on reverse? Need better eyes than mine to tell. Sorry if the pics are bad and too many.

Thank you for all your thoughts and opinions.

Yes, your coin has a few die chips, not uncommon.

Thanks Chase007! No opinion on the doubling? I think I see it on leaves. Just trying to identify doubling if / when it is present. Need help :)

Why the purple colour?
Lots of spots, hard to tell if they are die chips or areas of PMD marks.
I see no doubling, but it could be because of the out of focus close-ups.
Sorry, but it's hard to be excited about a 2016 dime.

LOL merclover, not that great a coin I know. But I used this setting on my little magnifier to show the edges of the leaves. It is supposed to be for coins (I thought).

Anyway, the leaves seem to show doubling in places to me. Not worth the effort I guess. But I do wonder, if it is doubling then might there be others like it?

The sad part is that it took this long in my life to realize how it all fits into progression. Did anyone notice the background of what the heated edge and the cold edge of steel would look like? That is how heated the tempering process would be. When it gets to this point, you would have to brush the metal to remove soot and carbon, to be able to see the blue moving across the metal the prettiest peacock blue you've ever seen. It move across the metal and when it get to the dark area, quenching at the time would make the tempering happen. We are talking seconds for this to happen. Miss the boat and you would have to re-heat the metal. If you missed the boat and just let it cool down, the metal would be softened. The change in temp from hot to cold then, make the tempering happen.

Reverse doubling would be on EPU or the center of the design for single squeeze dies. I don't see any evidence of either.
My best finds:
