    Morning I would like to see if I could get your all opinion on this coin, mainly on the reverse in (Dollar) what kind of error if it is.

    These minor extra thickness doubled dies are hard to verify, especially when they are as heavily circulated as your example is. What I am seeing could be just contact on the high points, and throwing me off. There are 4 DDR's that are extra thickness to the reverse, and show no notching or separation lines.

    If this is in fact a DDR. You are most likely only gonna be able to attribute it with die markers.

    Let's break it down. The D is it flat and shelf like? Nope, Is the O flat and shelf like? Nope. Is the first L flat and shelf like? Yep. Does that eliminate the DDR ? Nope. I personally would say this is a very minor DDR. But a DDR. Note that the vast majority of any DD coins do show sheriffs. Some very few do not. This maybe one. Also note. Some MD coins are also in fact DD coins. I wouldn't send this coin in, because to me it's value isn't very high, But it's a nice coin to own!

    Let me give you another analysis. Do you see the D and the O? Are those shaped normally? Get out another 1965 and see. What you're seeing as two Ds and two Os are one D and one O. We know that because not one of these two Ds and two Os you're seeing is the normal size of a D and O, and yet combine the double images in each, and they're the exact normal size.

    Suggestion. Get off "flat and shelf-like" and think what you're trying to identify in die doubling. Isn't it two adjacent images, partially-superimposed? That means one of the two images, and that would be the top one, necessarily, has to be fully-intact. It can't be distorted or chopped off, as appears here, as, again, it's the top image.

    That leaves, these are normal Ds and Os.

    What I see on the D and O of DOLLAR is MDD (Machine Damage Doubling), especially on the O. Blow up the DOLLAR photo and you should be able to see it too.
