I'm totally running in circles today, and even forgot my camera kit at work so some pretty iffy full coin shots with my phone. I found this one last night in a bag of cents, and posting as it is an interesting year. Most of the "doubled dies" listed on CONECA for this year have pretty much been shown to be a working hub, but this one clearly isn't, and it's actually a fairly nice DDO. It's hard to see with just one image of LIBERTY, but the R and T also have pretty good notching in the lower right. A coin worth checking for when searching memorial cents.

Sure do like this one.

You can certainly see the split serifs on LIBERTY.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks! This one is actually pretty easy to spot, as you just have to look at the B of LIBERTY. It's much too thick and the crossbar across the top has doubling that can usually be seen quite well with just a loupe. I don't even look at IGWT on these when searching as too much working hub stuff going on confusing the issue.
