    The W isnt the mint mark, its the writers initials. The mintmark is on the back, to the right of the word "one". It is also not full bands, as the bands are the ones going horizontally. There are 3 bands, and yours are worn down. Also, it is difficult to tell if it is a doubled die because the photos are a bit blurry.

    What you see on the Obverse is AW
    Adolph Weinman
    That's the designers initials.

    Your Winged Liberty Head Dime has circulation wear. No doubling and not full bands.

    It ain't nothing. But you want to keep it because it's got silver in it.

    There seems to be some visible doubling, but it is due to die deterioration towards the edges ( as is most common) and adds no extra value. IMO, Jim

    Welcome to CT. The Full Bands (or Full Split Bands) is determined by the two bindings in the center of the fasces. The top and bottom bindings are usually "full" but the center one often doesn't get fully struck.

    That’s not a W, it’s the designer’s initials, AW for Adolph Weinman. It’s in poor condition so only worth melt value.

    The 1944-W is a rare find. Learn more about it on YouTube. Oh lol. No.
