    While I for one, certainly appreciate that you posted your photos FULL IMAGE, I feel they needed to be cropped to really tell what was going on. There are free on-line apps that can crop the photos and do a nice job. : https://www.remove.bg is one that I like.
    Good luck on your hunts.

    Thanks. Good luck on your hunts, too, @Mountain Man. I have to say, that's some big gun you got there, looks like it could bring down buffalo.

    Anyone who holds a coin like that is no "coinhead" much less a serious collector. I cringe every time I see someone holding a coin in the palm of their hands or resting on their fingers. If it truly was a genuine DDO, you would have devalued it soon enough.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me. That's a blessing to me. It's from your heart. I wish everyone on CT would try to be as kind. I will practice up on the pics too. Peace my friend

    The two years are no where near the same .
    One of these two years has a doibled working hub, that was transferred to the working dies .

    Take a good look at this. As I said, above, the 1968-S is notorious for showing this look, as well. It's what we call, "strike doubling." There's a reason these years are replete with these examples. It's a little complicated, but to simplify, the Mint was fussing with ways to hold the dies more secure...

    Give the man a cigar. That would be 1969. We should watch for these. They're real doubled dies, as differentiated from the single-squeeze hubbings we're accustomed to settling for, these days, that require microscopes just to see, much less to appreciate. There are eight traditional classes of real doubled dies, but then I'll not bore us with that.

    I want to see a 68-S, that looks like that 69-S ? Then we can decide if it's MD, or the working hub .

    What are you not understanding? The 1968-S doesn’t have a doubled die. It has the same kind of strike doubling as the 1969-S because of experimenting in those years with the pins or some darn things to hold the dies more level so they didn’t tilt and cause the strike doubling. That didn’t work out too well as those two years are replete with it. If you want to see examples of that on a 1968-S, I can show you that. But I don’t know where you’re getting I even suggested there’s a 1968-S doubled die. Let the record reflect, there’s not.

    The 68-S has varieties in both proof and business strike . I'm just trying to put your theory to work .

    It’s true, Rick. About the strike doubling. I believe it just regards the ones struck for commerce. I may have first read the explanation on Wexler’s site, although I knew well before that those years were notorious for it.
