So there is definitely no slimming on the first 9 which rules out MD but the doubling looks like DDD. The second 9 looks slimmer then the first 9 even before the doubling on the first 9. I don't think this is a doubles die note MD so is the second 9 I'm the date reduced by grease and the first 9 DDD?


I don't see any doubling other then the first 9 in the date(light is not the cause) so my only conclusion is that the second 9 was slimmed by grease filling in the second 9!from polishing and DDD and normal width on the first 9?

I think it is normal but the other is enlarged due to the MD.

@Oldfordman, the first 9 is noticably larger then the second 9 even without any doubling, also as far as I know MD goes in one direction, DDD make a bit more sense because the loop of the first 9 has doubling at the outside bottom of the loop. take a closer look and the first 9 is larger then the second 9 even if you were to take away any doubling MD or DDD they are different sizes.

Can anyone post a close up if the same spot of the date on a 1989 D cent? It does not have to be exactly the same zoom. I just want a photo to compare the date size with. If it turn out to be what I posted it is just a face value penny, if it turn out I am wrong it is most likely still just a penny. I'm just getting a better idea of how coins look in hand, I can definitely see the first 9 is larger then the second without the doubling so that rules out MD (unless the second 9 has been reduced from polishing or grease filling the edge of the device) DDD in the first 9 and reduction on the second 9 is the only thing that makes sense to me.

Just a spender...9 closest to the rim is IMO slimmer due to more aggressive die polishing.
I'm by no means a pro and will never claim to be...just my 2 cents

@Greasy Fingers, no one in Canada spends pennies if you even can :p but that was what ny original assumption was. Die polished second 9 DDD first 9. This post is not about weather or not the coin is a keeper or not this post is about me improving on being to ween out the coins that can be a little confusing. I have not been great with identifying some of these things so some times I look at a coin longer then necessary. I'm happy to see I'm improving with the smaller detail's.

Die polishing and DDD issue with your coin. The die was aging and showing die events that altered the die. Not a doubled die. But DDD as you asked.
