Nope.. Just Mechanical doubling..
Looks flat and shelflike IMHO
This is what is frustrating me. I watched a video on 1967 die errors and i specifically mentioned the doubling of stars and letters and the pics they showed look EXACTLy like my pics, especially the stars. I can't tell any difference at all.
I'm reading this article now to try to see the difference. https://coins.thefuntimesguide.com/machine-doubling-doubled-dies/
Stick around... it's what I did and look at me... only been here a few months and I can tell the difference between a lot of errors or damage
Let us know what you think of the article. I suggest reading the article 4 or 5 times slowly and picture in your mind the photos as you re-read.
It's a great article & the videos are good. BUt it really takes time an concentration and closely looking. I wish I had actual doubled coins to see live in my hand, then compare to the mechanical doubling Kennedy I apparently possess. Well, maybe someday you guys will say, "HEY!!!! You got one!!!!" lol.
I looked up NAV couase I'm so new I didn't even know what that meant, which led me to another thread, which led me to a another good article. http://doubleddie.com/144801.html
Richard, you have to be patient. The fun of seeking a specific coin or variety is in the search. Many coin roll hunters process thousands of coins trying to find errors or scarce dates/MM's. Some are fortunate, occasionally, and most are not. Most doubled coins found are MD, mechanical/machine doubled, yet CRH'ers continue seeking the elusive DDO/DDR's, other variations and/or scarce dates/MM's because of the thrill of the chase, IMO. Knowledge is the key and the more you read, the more successful you will be. You have found a great example of MD, so keep it as an example and refer to it when you find another coin you think is a DDO.
PS. Great photos!
No Added Value is NAV. There are many forms of doubling and all but one of them is NAV. MD and DDD are the two most common.
@RIchard Abanes ...when you suspect doubling, in this case a 54 yo coin, match what you find at Wexler or Variety Vista.
After 54 years, more than likely those 2 sites will list a bonafide DDO/DDR for this half $, and, as said frequently on the forum:
“...if it isn’t an exact match, it isn’t”.
Save yourself valuable time by letting prior experience go to work for you. Change your paradigm to where you read and research your finds before posting. 95% of your questions will be answered by doing your own due diligence first. ...imo...Spark
Well, sigh, as if it wasn't difficult enough, now we've got BOTH MDD + real DD on the SAME coin!!!!.......... Thanks.... lol
