Is this a 1995 double die? I've see some on internet that looks a lot like it that is double die!

Looks more like DDD=die deterioration doubling to me than a doubled die. Check all three reference sites and see if you can find a match, this will help you learn what a doubled die looks like. Your title needs to read 1995-D.

Fixed the title. Color might be due to post-mint plating, but I agree with DDD.

I agree that it is DDD and looks like it has been plated.

I agree with the others, it certainly seems to be DDD. The plating of the coin seems to emphasize this, making it more obvious.

Yes, shows signs of being plated, and has the added thrill of DDD.

DDD always shows on the fields. Die wear on the older dies affects the outer edge of the devices.

DDD:

Always shows on the side of the devices towards the rim. In later die states of DDD, the devices loose their shape:


Excessive die wear:

Note the devices have moved towards the rim.

Question for the OP Jaypowell40;

When you hold this coin in your hand while looking at the images you posted here how close is the color of the coin (in hand) to the images you posted?

If it's different what's different?

Thank you!

DDD with a plated coin. Considered damage, rendering this cent worthless above face.

I'd be greatly appreciative (and it would be educational to everyone) if the members that post this coin has been plated would elaborate as to their reasoning for making such a statement?

Also, how many of you have actually seen the coin in hand and not just the electronic representation of the coin?

I feel enlightenment of these two questions would prove beneficial to the most important people in numismatics....the collectors.

Thank you!

The colour and the shininess is something that is unique to plated coins. High school chemistry classes electro-plate cents (and sometimes other coins) as part of in class experiments. Instructions for doing this at home is readily available on the internet. We see a fair number of these here on CCF. Whenever a ultra shiny silver colored coin turns up here, it is very easy to tell, again drawing on our numismatic experience. Especially on war time steel cents, people plate them erroneously thinking they are improving them when all they are doing is destroying their value. I hope this explanation helps!

THANK YOU for responding! I'm guessing from your response that you've seen the coin in hand, correct?

THIS coin, the OPers coin? No, but my explanation covers plated coins in general.

ESC. I don't have to have this coin in hand to see it's either plated or mercury rubbed. If it was an unplated planchet, it wouldn't be this shiny.
