Hey guys. This 2000 p south Carolina quarter has really thick lettering on the obverse and the date on the reverse. I was thinking Machine Doubling but no loss of the width of lettering is evident on the obverse. I hope you can see what I see and looking at the pictures the E in WE seems to shoe the best. In hand all of the letters are super thick and behind them are a continuation down to the planchet that is round, raised and thick. There are no varieties for this date other than a DDR that shows an extra branch near the birds feet. I am thinking Die Deterioration Doubling but need other opinions. Thanks in advance and God bless.

Well it is not a DDO as on these, the doubling would be on the earlobe or on the left side of the motto devices. But not Machine Doubling, but DDD making the corpulent devices larger in size. Note on this coin there are no flow lines, but the devices are showing die wear. I'm thinking the dies were recently polished and new flow lines have not started to form yet on the dies. The only DDO on the 1999-P that looks like the older multi-hub show what the DDO with a double hub process would look like is like this:

But that is the only DDO that was probably double hubbed example on the 50 States series.
The Single squeezed dies show on the other normal areas of the designs:


As the dies continue to deteriorate, they eventually get real mushy:












So these dies have a lot more work ahead of them before they look that bad.
