    ...so, I haven't been searching but went to the bank on this rainy day. I opened the 1st roll and found this very interesting 1939 s.
    It has a lot of raised lettering overlap on IGWT...and some on the date?

    That is DDD - Die Deterioration Doubling
    Not a Doubled Die variety.

    I appreciate your opinion.
    It is a good hypothesis and my second.
    The "G" and the "E" are too hideously overlapped to be deterioration. AND they are raised.
    Just dont get angry. If I believed it was conclusively DDD, i would not have posted it.
    I have another coming that you will say is just PMD but i dont.

    Hope you are open to honest answers, unlike an earlier post by another member. This deterioration is common on earlier wheat cents but as paddy said and not an error. But keep up the good search!

    Take note of how each letter is really thin at the top. With a true doubled die, the letter would be normal with a second raised part to the letter.

    What you just posted was true hub doubling vs. die deterioration doubling. At this point your best bet would be to send it to a TPG, have it slabbed and come back later and tell us all "I told you so". I could name you four people here who have a combined 200 + years experience in these, but it's not going to change your mind.

    I already knew you were going to respond in the manner you did. It's what you always do. I don't even know why I bother. Good luck with your DDD Cent.
