I've been going through my hoard of cents to thin it out and arrange what's left. I found a bunch of colourful small cents and started to make a collection from 1937 up. When I got to 1953, I found this guy. I don't know where it came from and don't remember buying it (I marked everything I bought on ebay over $5). It looks like it was in a coin book (Whitman's ?) for a long time. The reverse looks almost black when seen head-on. The obverse has a reddish centre and is greenish around the rim.
For another coin I posted, SPP told me of flat-field doubling, and I'd like to verify if this one is also.

Machine Doubling usually affects more than one design element.

Die Deterioration Doubling, and it looks like a regular business strike.
