    The only place I see any sort of doubling is on the date, specifically the Three. Also, I'm not sure what's going on with the forehead. Comments and opinions greatly appreciated.

    Not a Doubled Die. The 3 is Doubled butbits only NAV or No Added Value Doubling.

    It looks like die deterioration to me. ~ Chris

    What, exactly, is "No Added Value Doubling"? What causes "NAV Doubling"? ~ Chris

    The die is worn from cleaning. ~ Chris

    yep, I assumed it was not a double die.

    Any form of doubling that holds face value. It's a polite way to say worthless doubling.

    NAV does sound nicer!

    A bit more technical as well. :)

    Don't you think that might cause some misunderstanding for newcomers to the hobby? Why not just say that machine doubling or mechanical doubling or strike doubling or ejection doubling adds no premium to the face value of a coin? ~ Chris

    It has nothing to do with machine doubling or mechanical doubling or strike doubling or ejection doubling, so you are forced to explain yourself when the newbie can't find the proper definition in their book. ~ Chris

    I and others have been using that for a year plus with no problems. Not all new collectors have the distinction problem.

    I know, and it has bothered me all that time. Just my 2c worth! ~ Chris

    Understood. The way I and others see it, it really doesn't matter what caused the doubling because the doubling is worth face value and not a cent more. The vast majority of the people asking want to make a fast buck.

    I won't argue with you on that point! That is why I HATE, DETEST, ABHOR & LOATHE the "What's it Worth" forum. ~ Chris

    Every now and again you get someone like myself who wants to figure it all out. It might take them a while but they'll get it. In my opinion, it's defiinitly worth it to use the correct terminology and spark an interest if there is one. No added value just perpetuates the people looking for a quick buck. Again, only in my opinion (and I know we'll never get rid of that type either soooo.........??)

    I do not think it is a doubling of any kind but appearance. if you follow the scratches down from the ding on the 3, it looks like PMD ( Post Mint Damage) to me. IMO, Jim
