Hi All,

Found this in a pile that I've had around for a while. What am I looking at here? I don't see any exact matches. The images fall short of what I see through the Loop and Microscope. The S is 2 distinct letters.

Thanks in advance for your time!

Thanks for the prompt reply @levelsofmadness. Great reference page, too. This is a case of want it bad enough you see it, I guess. I swear that the Mintmark looks like 2 raised S's until I see it in the images. Time to invest in a coin scope.

Have a great rest of week.

i have a cheap loupe from hobby lobby that I use.

but when taking pictures, it is all about the lighting.

one time I took two pictures (lighting at different angles) of a coin and I swear from the pictures it was two different varieties.

so, that is why I say IT IS ALL ABOUT THE LIGHTING.

good luck on future finds

1969 seems to have been a good year for MD on cents. Yours is a great example!

Yes, the '69 S cent seems to have a high(er) incidence of strong Machine Doubling associated with the date and mint mark. I've seen several hundred examples over the decades. I keep the best ones in a tube.

Hey all, thank you for the very useful info and links. This one seems significant enough that I might make it the first in my soon to be new "Interesting Machine Doubling" collection. Have a great week everyone.

Also notice the mintmark has the doubling. The genuine DDO does not have a doubled mintmark.

The 1968-1972 cents had a lot of Machine Doubling those years. (Probably because so many were looking for the big one: 1969-S DDO-001. The Sloppy machine era.
