    Is this a DDO or Machine Doubling?

    I am mostly seeing the doubling on the bottom of the U and S in TRUST. That looks like DDD. Again, I am not great at these LMC doubled dies. From my understanding, I think around 1963/1964 the cents show a lot of thickness in the letters.

    Kevin, normally I would not comment on one like this, although it has some interesting areas, the sharpness ( yes I realize your equipment currently) and lighting makes it impossible for me to give a firm answer. The odds are always on no, but better than the unslabbed ones on eBay where they are usually less than 10% correct. Don't force any decision, label it in a flip and put it in a box marked ??? and check it again in a few years. Jim

    I have definitely done this a few times, especially recently when I really just can't tell. I don't ever think it's a bad idea either. Sometimes I have to do this while I get reacquainted with errors and varieties after not looking for them over a period of time.
