    This is one of daddy's coins.. I see doubling on the obverse.. If this is not doubling then please tell me what it's called.. The L in Liberty.. WE TRUST at the top.. and the mintmark and 9 in the date.. Look at UNI in UNITED on the reverse.. and I almost forgot, look at President Lincoln's eye.. Thanks 20200915_211820.jpg 20200918_122800.jpg 20200915_211858.jpg 20200915_212547.jpg 20200915_212103.jpg 20200918_122053.jpg 20200918_122036.jpg 20200918_122014.jpg

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Wexler wrote about mechanical doubling and die deterioration doubling on his site. This link should take you to the section he calls "Worthless Double".

    It takes some practice, but the sooner you can spot worthless doubling, the less time you'll waste thinking it's true hub doubling. Plus, you can go to the listings and get some experience looking at real doubled dies. As you may have noticed, there are lots of doubled die posts on here that are really worthless doubling. Looking and studying the characteristics of the different types is one of the best ways to learn about them

    You should walk away from trying to find doubled die coins. It's a waste of your time.

    It might be better to change your tactics.
    Instead of not learning about Mechanical Doubling, Die Deterioration Doubling, etc.

    Learn about which Quarters actually are KNOWN to have Doubled Dies ==> https://www.doubleddie.com/721634.html

    Then when you have one of these particular year, mint mark quarters then you can compare your quarter to their pictures and see if there are some *exact* similarities.

    The same can be done for cents, nickels, etc.

    That would make too much cents and take too much cents . . .

    Why do the hard work learning when they can rely on the kindness and expertise of others?

    There are many types of doubling but most are really common with our coinage.
    There is nothing wrong with collecting them as long as you take the time to learn what it is you are collecting.
    Any real value comes with what's called die doubling.

    I don't know about others but for me it is hard to distinguish. That's the reason I ask the experts. And yes I have read up on the differences. And no I don't think I am incapable of learning. Lol. I have a BS in Computer Science and a law degree and passed the Bar 1st time around. But for some reason I have a difficult time distinguishing. So I go to the experts! And I sincerely thank you all for your time and knowledge. I am glad you have this forum. Take care.

    I have been using the doubleddie site and others to read up on the die process and what a doubled die error looks like. I have been using the pictures to compare and have "potted" almost all of my coins thus far. I have a few questions from time to time. I too find it challenging to see the difference between a doubled die error vs a worn die mark. It has helped me not ask about coins I now know are pmd and such.
