As I venture into the darkside, I would love to start collecting doubled dies of the world. I think that would be an awesome set!

The Nepal DDO that biokemist posted recently really inspired me. Bio, please repost it here!

Anyway, I've done a search for a list and everything I've come up with seems to lead to dead links. Anyone know where I can get a starter checklist from?

In the meantime, let me see what you have in your collection as far as doubled dies! Give me some ideas of coins to pursue!

I only have one darkside DDO so far and I want more! This one just happened to be part of a world lot I bought and is a 1953 Yugoslavia 50 Para.

If you have any that you would like to part with, find me in the want to buy forum!

I guess I should mention, just because it's not a darksider to you, doesn't mean it isn't for the rest of us!

Fun topic to get started!
My favorite DSDD is probably this 1869 Uruguay 4 Centisimos. It's also the earliest known trails die.

Nice DVC!

I seen an old thread that had a 2000 10 Centavos from Brazil that was a real beauty! I want one!
I'm sure it's not new to a lot of you, but it's stunning the first time you see it!

I think I remember that one--is there a general who appears to be "waving" his sword, due to the doubling? Cool!

Here's another interesting one I found randomly in a pile. Coppercoins confirmed this as a "Very strong class 6, distended hub doubled die". Also, notice the 3 in 1943 doesn't appear as distorted? This may have been punched after the die was hubbed.



Compare to a normal 43-I reverse:

I edited my original post when I realized I didn't put that in there!

It is a 1953 Yugoslavia 50 Para.

I stole this pic from the old thread I was referring to. I hope it is ok, since it was an upload to CCF already. It was from 2008 and posted by russellhome.

It's a beauty! I have got to get me one of these!

Wow, that's dramatic!
Now, I'm a total novice at doubling, in fact I wasn't aware of things like that happening till I joined the forum.
My question is how can this happen that only part of the image is doubled while the rest seems to be fine?

Good question Slav. Isn't that a beauty though?

Hopefully, bio will be along shortly (or anyone else that can answer that question).

That's such a great doubled die!

Regarding the Brasil coin? If you look closely towards the center, you'll spot the doubling in the eye, hand, and lips. In this case, I think the spread of the doubling increases towards the rim as a function of the rotation--what's the real term for that?

I recall that many dies are only partially hubbed the first impression, where double-hubbing may show up only in the center, or on along the rim. That may be the case for this 1956 Aussie penny, which should a doubling only around the outer legends. An Aussie collector thought this was due to hubbing a conical die blank.

I unveiled this one in another thread a few days ago but it appears that I am being called out for an encore It is a 1968 10 Rupee from Nepal KM# 794. This one has a funny story, I purchased it a couple years ago as an educational example of die lathe lines as seen on the reverse. I owned it for a few months before I took these photos and that is when I realized it had a huge DDO

Keep in mind that there are nice classes of hub doubling and each one has different characteristics. The coin I have posted is a Class 4 Doubled Die- Offset Hub Doubling. Other examples of Class 4 would be the 1984 and 1997 Lincoln Cents with doubled ears.

While you're looking for doubled-dies, you could also check for repunched dates.
Some are fairly common, and will add variety to your search.

For example, check out 1 and 5 centavos from Colombia fromthe 50s-70s, where wild repunchings were commonplace. This one is a very entertaining piece because not only were the digits repunched, but because they used several different punch styles! Here's a breakdown of the photo below:

The 1 digit was punched with a large, sans-serif numeral over a shorter, serif numeral--check out the flare on the base of the underlying 1!

The 9 digit was punched at least 3 times! There's evidence of a digit east, then an underlying 9 with a flatter bottom stroke was finished with a 9 where the stroke curls upward. At least 2 digit styles again.

On the 7, there's a straight downstroke underneath a more curved 7 digit. Any ideas why the coin field is depressed around this digit?

The 0 is a bit lower, but at least it's completely on the die!
I've seen a few coins where several digits run off the edge.
There are traces of a second 0 NW of the top digit.

Nice DVC. I have come across a few of these already, but have not pulled the trigger yet. Been thinking about it. Most have not been that solid. They have been minor repunches.

No, why?
