It seems some have gotten confused about these two errors so ive decided to give brief explanation.

Doubled die: error in production of a die which results in the doubling of all devices on the coin. Multiple coins are produced with the same errors. Increases value.

Double strike: a coin that is struck more then once and the coin shifts positions in between the strike, resulting in a double image of a device but not all devices are necessarily affected, it just depends on how the coin shifts during striking. Only affects a single coin, because it is not a die error but a striking error. Usually not as valuable as a doubled die error.

But usually only one die is affected on a doubled die. There are a few of both sides being doubled dies, but the incorrect hubbing of die affect one die at a time during the dies creation.




The reverse is normal on this coin.

Only the obverse die is a doubled die.

Double struck:




Looks like a mint worker assisted this striking of this coin?










Several different types of double strikes. flip over, off centers, double struck in collar, out of collar. I have a lot more images, but no use in drowning the subject. (I have over 250 images in this search)

Heya coop. Could I see an image of a flipped double strike? How in the world would that happen? That'd have to be one in several million chances of occurring.

Not all doubled die coins are worth money. Sometimes they are to plentiful. But I guarantee every double struck coin is worth money, and usually big money.

Which one? The first on is just an overlay of the location of the strikes on the first three images in that section.

The coin doesn't exit the chamber and sometimes flips over in the collar:
