@meg, an interesting find, but not a doubled die as noted by @cuj and @nyi.

Agree with all above. Megenkw1 -- what does the reverse look like--any die cracks or die chips?

Some die wear in the direction of the closest rims. They were also bad that year with a lot of die wear:

A lot of the 1950's wheat cents are showing extreme die wear as they were used past normal retirement to squeeze several more cents out of the dies.
