Have you seen this double die reverse and obverse of the 1992 D Lincoln Cent? I have been unable to find a similar variety online. Particularly the reverse.To me, it almost looks like triple die on the "A" over "STATES". Just curious, have I found something special or has somebody else seen the same Lincoln cent? Thank you in advance.

Your coin exhibits classic Machine Doubling which is not a true doubled die at all but a result of how the coin shifted while being struck.

The flat, shelf like devices on the 2nd 9 in the date is a text book example of this phenomena.

It's not considered a collectable variety or error - simple a common striking occurrence. It the mint required every coin to be perfect we would have very few coins.

Thank you all for taking the time to reply to my post. It is disappointing, how something that looks so drastic to me can't be considered a legit double die. Especially the tripling of the A on states. I thought I made a discovery! But hey, I guess that's just the way the game goes. I do appreciate it and I'm looking forward to communicating more.

This is DDD. ( Die Deterioration Doubling) Note that the fields are the areas affected, not the devices. These are always towards the direction of the closest rims. Thus on the Date, you see them on the right side of the coin. On Liberty you will see them on the left side of the coin.

These are not doubled dies and will never be listed as a doubled die. They are extreme die wear on the dies. Common to find on these single squeeze cents. There is actually a 4 step progress that these dies suffer. This is just the fist stage:

There are three other steps beyond this. But not a hub/die creation, but die wear on these cent dies. To learn more on this subject check out the link below:
DDD? What is that? stages of die aging. not a premium for the coins, just what is going on with these single squeezed dies with the lower profiles.

I came across this exact same penny today. It looks like the metal above the T is raised on mine. Thank you for posting it now I can just put it back in with other pennies. I thought it was something to. Bummer!

You could save it as an educational piece to show to another new collector? (A show and tell piece of what not to keep as it is a die wear issue)
