    Thoughts on whether this is repunched date or something else?

    Hello, good evening . Is that the only doubling before we begin ? So far I see shelf -like doubling = MD Usually .

    There is a little very slight evidence of what I'd consider MD in America and in United, though unlike the date I have to hold the coin in the correct orientation to see that.

    Looks like an overdate/RPD to me take a closer look at the 6 and the 9

    Do you know what RPD means?
    He was asking if it was a RPD not a DDO

    It may be a RPD, but notice the large amounts of die chips and breaks that appear in the dates general area. I'd say there's a chance that this is a RPD, but my money is on MD.

    According to NGC repunched dates seem to be "Quite minor"

    And I'd agree with them - though I should note this is a 1906 P, not a D. I doubt this coin, even if a RPD, would command a premium. It's more about clarification for me than anything else. That said, I'd say this is less minor than many of those they attribute.

    I'm no expert on this topic but if you find more info, I'd be interested in finding out what caused this (marked by red arrows):

    I have an idea but I'm not sure.

    The 45 degree line in the picture is nothing. I removed the coin from the 2x2 and blew very gently on the coin - the line disappeared.

    Not much data on RPD for this coin. The aspect of this coin that is puzzling to me is the "0" which appears normal. The "9" & "6" look like they were repunched to the left and slightly moved toward the neck. The "1" appears to have been repunched and moved toward the neck. My opinion is this is a RPD, but I would wait for more comments from members who collect this series of coin.
