    Found this 1947 D coin roll hunting. Look on the reverse ,the wheat stalk to the left. The right side of that looks like there's an extra line to the stalk. You can see it fade away if you follow that line towards the bottom. It looks wider too than the right stalk. I looked at other 1947 D cents and they don't have that I can't find it on any of the other sites so I come to the professionals who I've learned so much came so far overcame many obstacles and still don't know what I'm doing. Lol but I'm serious side what is going on with that is that doubled? IMG_20230928_131145985_BURST000_COVER.jpg IMG_20230928_130336052.jpg IMG_20230928_130621849.jpg

    Count the lines in both sides appear to come to the same number in the photo , but you can count the coin/ The 2 exterior ones on the right seem as if slightly fused, but no other difference shows. On the obverse, the LIBERTY shows distinct die deterioration doubling (extremely common and considered as a - rather than a plus.

    Looking at some MS Wheat Cents I see that the first inside line runs out straight across from the top of the U. Your cent has seen a lot of wear and tear. I think what you see is normal for a cent in circulation that long.

    You don't miss much with that trusty microscope, do you? The way some of you guys have been going at it with those I sometimes wonder how I ever learned to enjoy this hobby without one, but somehow I did.

    Your coin has wear, not extreme but it’s seen it’s share. It’s normal.

    Die Deteroration Damage occurs probably 10,000X more frequently than a true doubled die. SO figure thats it until strong proof shows for a true doubled die coin,

    The true challenge of any coin collector should be to find a coin that is exactly to design specifications. Wait, every coin that is released from the US Mint meets the design acceptance criteria or it wouldn't be released. The criteria includes variables that too many people recognize as errors. These anomalies are not errors. they are standard manufacturing variables that are designated as acceptable. And, the closer you look the more obvious the variations become.

    All coins have errors. Not a coin minted won’t have an error. That is if you use anything above a 10x to magnify it.
