There is no listing for a 1972 P DDR that I can find. After throwing this back in the re-roll pile I came across the 1974 D listing on Variety Vista and it looks almost exact to me. I posted some of Variety Vistas pics at bottom I have not figured out how to do side by side yet. I may be wrong again and it may be Machine Doubling, (which is why it eneded up in the re-roll pile) but it sure looks the same to me..Thanks in advance!

That's Machine Doubling in both sets of images.

Note how the die markers for that VV listing mention this:

Reverse has strong MDD - EDS


The true doubled die on that coin is actually much smaller than the MD. I think it is most visible as the separation on the stars and the notch on the lower right side of the E in AMERICA.

Correct. It is not a doubled die. Note all the affected devices are moved metal. On a doubled die, the devices will enlarged in size, not reduced like your coin that shows where the contour of devices was altered.

Thanks all, I just compared pictures and did not read, the first time I saw it I discarded as MD then later when I saw the pics for the 1974 I remembered it, but I did not read like I should have! It is a good imposter of the 74 though
