It's a little tattered but still a good find. I zoomed in on the date because the numbers looked kind of thick and it made me think about some of the discussions abouy doubling appearing as thickened letters or numbers without actually seeing the doubling. I still don't fully understand it so maybe we can talk about it a little.

Looks like circulation flattening to me. There are 9 types of doubled dies,here is a good read; http://doubleddie.com/58222.html

I agree with circulation flattening. 'Fat' letters and numbers are not always sure fire signs of doubling. Cool find none-the-less.

The devices flattening stop when they are the widest/tallest? Why? Because the devices are tapered, the tops (narrow part of the devices) get flattened outwards to the outside edge of the coin (the base of these tapered devices) Thus they narrow tops are flattened to the edges of the devices. (the base) Try some of the upper metal gets worn off of the devices. But the bases are usually the end of flattening:

Note the rims on these cents? Note that when the rim wore off of these cents, the devices were still pretty strong. Note when the rims are gone?

The devices go away a lot faster then. Thus most collectors prefer Fine or better coins better for filling albums. (Always up grading when a better example is found)

Thank for all the info yall! Much appreciated. My confusion is probably because I haven't found a double die myself. I will.

Learn how coins are made before trying to find errors. Not every coin is an error coin; error coins are rare. You are leaning the hobby backwards.
