    To me, this looks like a double die but I can't find a listing for it. Last T in TRUST. While this is pretty minor, there are many other examples listed for similar DDOs. Does it look like a DDO to you?

    I get it. It's minor. Please take a look at the last T in TRUST, just under the crossbar and to the right side of the vertical bar. This would be a very small DD, but as I said there are similar listings on doubledie.com and others. No value, I'm fairly sure but interesting. It kind of looks like part of another crossbar.

    No, it's not minor! Yes, you should look again, and recite this......."flat and shelf-like!"

    Not a doubled die. The left looks flat and shelf like. The right side just under the crossbar on the T looks like a small die chip. Nothing major.

    @cpm9ball Whatever this is is not MD. @RBurk Hard to say if this is a die gouge/dent or a very minor DDO. Wexler lists several DDOs for late 50s/early 60s that are somewhat similar to this, so I wouldn't rule out DDO as a possibility. That said, it's also so minor, I personally would probably not care enough to save it (and I am pretty meticulous about keeping even very esoteric die varieties.

    Edit: I believe it's a doubled die. I don't see a listing, but it's a similar type of doubling to WDDR-004.

    If you're not going to accept comments that don't agree with your opinion, then why bother posting this? I still say you're wrong!

    I'm not OP. If you're not going to accept other users disagreeing with your opinion, maybe don't post things that are poorly informed.

    I apologize for calling you the OP. But, you're wrong, too! And, don't tell me what I can or can't post!

    Lots of die deterioration and even the lighting don't help....!

    I never told you what you can or can't post, I said if you're going to have thin skin, maybe you should become better informed.

    The notching under the crossbar of the T is 100% not machine doubling, and it's kind of peculiar that you're even going to MD as the explanation, since this is not at all how it would present. If anything, it looks like it could be a die gouge or dent, but not MD.

    One thing I notice a lot on this forum is that there is a very low false positive rate, but an absurdly bad false negative rate. It ends up looking like you know what you're talking about because MD/DDD/split plate doubling, etc. are far more common than die varieties or more exotic die events so just responding "MD" will be right 99% of the time, but in point of fact, as an actual ratio, your identification rate is abysmal.

    You can always tell when someone screws up because they change the subject. You never said anything about being thin-skinned. You seem to have a hard time expressing yourself clearly.

    Since when is a thing poorly informed?

    Furthermore, what class of doubled die do you call that "thing-a-ma-jig" that is under the crossbar of the "T". It looks more like a die chip to me.

    While we're at it, what is that "doo-hickey" that runs along the left side of the "T". It looks like it is flat and shelf-like to me.

    It seems that everyone is stupid, but you. I wonder where you fit on the "abysmal scale"?

    Dude, I hate to say it, but if that's the only criteria you're able to cite in support of this being a DDO, you've quite a bit of reading up to do. Now we can steer you if you want, but that's entirely up to you. You know what they say about horses and leading them to water. The same idea applies, here.

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    The left side of the T is almost certainly machine doubling.

    I believe the right side of the T is probably a die chip. I don't see any doubling on the S - for separation as wide as the T would exhibit, I'd expect to see something on other letters.

    You started with a double squeezed coin and trying to use the photos of single squeezed coin to prove both are doubled dies, where I say neither.

    Sorry , Wexler and Flynn has already listed a Type IX in their Authoritative Reference on Lincoln Cents ( Highly recommended by me) and they call it IX "God only Knows".

    Aren't you the guy who argued with me extensively about the Class V doubled die on a Deutsche Mark only to admit you were totally wrong in the end? Love the confidence that you know better than me all of a sudden.
