Look at the Wreath it looks like either DD to the left and also DD to the right of it or I don't know what else to call it. The Shield looks like DD The coin is a beauty( MS66 I think?) but I'm wondering if the so called error gives it higher value. As always thanks so much for all the Great help!!!-Sorry if to many pictures just trying to cover everything.

These are very nice closeups.
I see die cracks and die chips. I am not an Indian Head cent expert by any means, but this doesn't look like a doubled die. Definitely not a MS-66 either, I would say AU-58 with the lighting provided.

I'm quite sure it's a die clash, NOT die cracks.
Snow doesn't list it.
But Snow only lists die errors and clashes are not die errors; they are strike errors.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Ehh, die event.

Also, Snow does list some clashes, but only unusual ones like mule clashes and misaligned/off-center die clashes.

There may be a bit of Longacres doubling around the wreath, but other than that I see no clear doubling.

Nice looking coin and great photography but FYI, a Doubled Die
is a Variety, not an Error.
