At first, I was excited when I thought I had finally found a second 1976 DDO type 1 example after painstakingly searching through 67,500 circulated cents, once I found this doubled die I had also found a few other things on my list to look for and put it away without doing any comparisons.

Finding another example of the 1976 DDO Type 1 has proven to be even more elusive than I had previously thought, bumping it up to one of the hardest modern Canadian doubled dies to find, in my opinion.

Shoutout to Tanman2001 as he pointed out that it looked to be a different doubled die altogether as the doubling was in the opposite direction as shown below, and he was 100% correct and I'm surprised I had missed it.

Here you see "ZA" of "ELIZABETH" with noticeable splits in the tips of the "Z" and the top point of the "A".



This image is of the "ET" in "ELIZABETH" also showing noticeable splits with a nice spread.



This last image is of the 1976 DDO Type 1 (left, top, and bottom image) compared to 1976 DDO Type 2 (right, top, and bottom image), specifically the letter "A" in "ELIZABETH" as it shows the differences being quite obvious.



Once my phone is fixed I will update with full coin photos and do some more comparisons that are not as close.
Searching Canadian Small Cents daily since 2018.

@JohnWayn007, very nice. I am really happy that such an expert on Canadian doubled dies resides on this forum, as they are few and far between. Thank you for sharing so many examples, it helps many of us Canadian to know that these are out there and where to look.

I have yet to look through my Canadian cents for doubled dies, I have been mainly focusing on the American coins I have aquired due to the extensive research and examples to compare to. I have a few thousand Canadian cent I need to look through 4-5000 probably.
