I'll let the smart ones answer after I do

Your cent looks like it is the result of Machine Doubling.

This is die wear. Note all the affected areas are moving towards the rim direction. Devices and mintmarks.




These are not doubled dies. They are just an aging die. Consider that the Steel dies and Steel planchets are not a good match for the dies. (they wear faster)

Looks to be a re-plated too, which I've notice amplifies existing condition on the coin.

Yes common--yours is a good example of a tired die though.

With the question answered, I noticed it is in very good condition with beautiful toning. I would put it in a 2 x 2.

Notorious steel cent die wear on the obverse. Yes, 2x2 worthy. Nice.

Great info thanks all. Even on the Greaser I posted.

Question?
I have 10 or so id like to post.
Should I make one post and put a few coins in that post instead of spamming the forum?

Thanks 4 the welcome

Best to stick to one. If the 10 are all the same thing, then posting one, you will then have the answer for the other 9.

Nice coin. I think a closer look should be taken at the MM. There is a significant separation between the raised visible "S" and the flattened section to the right. The coin does exhibit Die Deterioration, however, MD should also be considered as a contributing factor, IMO.
Comments welcomed.
