Hi all! Found this 1984 Lincoln Memorial cent
and USA looks like it could be doubled, but I could not find any matches on Variey Vista, or Wexler's or CopperCoins, so I thought maybe I'm seeing something that just isn't there. Something looks off on the thickness of the devices and I think I'm seeing some notches, but I'm not sure as I'm relatively new to this hobby. Hoping your experience will provide some insights as to what actually happened to this coin, if it is some kind of doubling, or worn out die, or some such normality so I may better understand what to look for and train my eyes to see!
Looking at this, I may need to try to get better pictures, but please let me know if I'm just seeing Machine Doubling
, or Die Deterioration
, or perhaps a DDR
if you can.
That being said, my questions are:
(1) Is this a DDR
(2) The coin seems to be quite dirty, I have seen other posts where it has been suggested to dip in 100% acetone. Would you suggest I do that with this coin? (assuming it's not just a spender).
