Hello, I'm new to the coin error community and I could really use some help with this one.Is it just Machine Doubling, or do I have a real DD error coin? I did the best I could with the pics!

. Your coin is showing DDD=die deterioration doubling.

Possible RPM on both sides? Do you even know what a RPM is? I agree with John1, DDD. Not a mint error.
ça va bien aller

@carr, first welcome to CCF. I'm glad you found us and hope that we can help you understand what you are seeing with your coins.

Second, yes I agree that a poll isn't really needed here so I will remove that aspect of your thread. Don't stress about it though—it is a somewhat common mistake and is easily fixed.

Added: good point about your pictures. These close-ups, while not perfect, are well above average for a first post. Well done.

Extreme die wear is present. Also Machine Doubling on the devices. (Not DDD as the affected area is not in the direction of the rim.) No RPMs after 1990. So this is not a variety coin of either a DDO / DDR. Just a worn out die example with Machine Doubling on some of the devices.
