    ya have to give this to me (i think). These Columns are doubled right. I cant be wrong this time. I know I been wrong before, actually I’ve been wrong every time before ...but now, no, right? All I’m asking is for someone to make it official...or not.

    I checked coppercoins and varietyvista and neither have anything like yours. What I "think" I see is a bit of wear mixed with some plating issues/MD. That being said, I don't claim to be any kind of expert on the column doubling because it tends to be too small for me to see and not worth my time to search.

    I think @tommyc03 or @Rick Stachowski knows more about these.

    I have one similar to yours and I was told that it was MD, I hope for your sake it isn't MD and it is a DD that be would be cool.

    All of the columns appear to be normal. Aside from the plating issues I see, the insides of each column, if well struck, should appear as in your photo. Save this one to compare to others that are well struck and you will see this again. But, as a die deteriorates, what appears as the doubling you think you see will slowly fade and the insides of the columns will not appear as sharp and some will disappear giving the impression that those well struck are doubled.

    Reread your statement.

    Then ask yourself, "What have I done to learn about Doubled Die, mechanical doubling, die deterioration and everything else about the life cycle of a coin?" So that a statement like yours would be more positive in relation to any finds.

    ie, put away the coin hunting. And start researching and reading about what you are looking for. Just read all the posts in this forum of ppl thinking they have DoubledDie just from the past week. You'll learn a lot.

    I'm going to go at this from another angle for this OP.

    No, you do not have a true doubled die coin here, BUT THAT IS MORE THAN OKAY! It's okay to not have a doubled die coin because doubled die coins are not the Holy Grail of coin collecting. Yes, they are one niche, and admittedly, a niche that IS growing. But they are not YET the mainstream point of coin collecting. It's okay. There are many, many even more sought after things in numismatics, so I'd advise you to keep your options, and your mind, open. Don't EITHER get wrapped ONLY in doubled die coins NOR completely ignore them. It's merely only one aisle in the huge metaphorical library of numismatics.

    Trying to get my point across without too badly disappointing potential new collectors, or ticking them off, is important to me. We all have an obligation "grow the hobby".

    That is unless I detect a shmoe who is trying to hit some jackpot. I’ll still savage them fully.

    And as I look to my right, I'm afraid somebody else is going to have to deal with @Harvey D. I don't have enough "nice nice" left for four straight threads.

    No, but I'm around them all day, every day, and I've argued pro se in a redistricting case in front of our state's Supreme Court - the only type of case in which our Supreme Court has original jurisdiction. I even kept all the Justices' names straight at oral argument. Since that day, when I pass the Chief Justice in the halls, or we meet in the cafeteria, he greets me.

    The number of non-lawyers who have argued before this court is tiny - maybe 10-15 people alive now, and about half are criminal lifers.

    Thats pretty awesome! My attorney always says "I am going to go at this from another angle" so it was a wild guess.

    Regarding the OP, I saw the same things as you when I looked at some of my coins. The pillars just didnt seem like the rest so I compared them to Wexler's and proof coin images i found on the net. My conclusion was that the shine on the cent plays tricks whit the light and brigs out all the lines and ridges that are supposed to be there originally.
