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.
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.
Here's a image from Pcgs .
Nailed it. Your wonderful
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.
I'm waiting for the "APRIL FOOLS!" haha. I kid, I kid.
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".
You must have missed a recent post today..."Do I Have A Jackpot". Get right over there!
Kurt already muzzled himself on that one ==> https://www.cointalk.com/threads/do-i-have-a-jackpot.314036/#post-3041797
@Harvey D. I don't have enough "nice nice" left for four straight threads.
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.
Separate names with a comma.
