Hello. I recently began searching penny rolls and am only about 50 rolls in. I found what I think is something but I haven't had enough experience to be sure. I have tried asking in a several Facebook groups and asked a few other places and have found zero help with this coin. it is a 1969 D penny with what I think is doubling on the obverse and either a dual S mint mark or another oddity I have yet to learn about along with what is either just grime and dirt or a lamination error. My eyes are very poor and I have a difficult time seeing so I could be completely wrong. I apologize if that's the case. Hopefully someone will find it interesting though. Thank you for your time I hope someone can help.

No need to apologize, everyone has to learn sometime.
There are no errors in on your coin.
The mark beside the mm is just a hit from some something causing an indentation.
Everything else can be attributed to circulation wear.
Remember, it is only an error if it happens during the striking of the coin.
Things like dings, scratches, damaged letters excessive wear etc. can most
of the time be attributed to damage.

Not the reply I had been hoping to get. You have probably had many newbies pass through with similar coins. I don't know if my photos are providing enough detail. Here is one last photo but you are probably right since you have experience. I really thought for sure. I'll keep searching.

Save Yourself time, effort, and disappointment...don't learn the coin hobby backwards.

Looking for random anomalies on coins and hoping they match up to something collectable will take you a lot more time, wasted effort, and disappointment repeatedly finding out you have nothing but post mint damage or useless Machine Doubling, Die Deterioration, etc.

Spend some initial time at places like error-ref.com, doubleddie.com, varietyvista.com, conecaonline.org, coppercoins.com etc. to find what actual and collectable coin errors look like.

A good way to start is, for instance, separate a bunch of pennies by date. Go to varietyvista.com and, date by date, use the reference there to see what errors are known for that specific coin/mint mark. Look for those specific errors/varieties using the pictures provided. After doing this for awhile you will KNOW what an actual error looks like and not have to waste time on face value and damaged coins.

with all of the above, especially Earle42. Learn more about what errors look like before searching for them.

I am back with an update on this penny. After leaving discouraged about my find I found an individual on a Facebook group I joined who utilized overlays and her amazing knowledge to conclude my coin was indeed an error coin and not the pocket damaged coin everyone was quick to label it. It turns out it may not be the DMM I had guessed it could be though, however, it is a struck through dropped filling: isolated element error. I will share it when it arrives back but I figured since nobody was able to identify the error I would share this information. I have continued searching since and have found a few other keepers, nothing really special. I think the other best is a 2000 D Wide AM but the condition is nothing for me to be extremely proud about. I appreciate the original responses though and may find another coin at some point to ask about. Thank you.

to the CCF If they are saying this is a dropped # the pictures provided doesn't look like it's flush with the surface which a dropped letter should be.
