    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Sorry, it's just machine doubling. See how it's flat and shelf-like.

    Notice how both the date and mm look doubled? Prior to 1989, the mint hand punched the mm on dies. Doubling on coins like the 1995, 1969-S and 1955 cents are due to the working hub being slightly misaligned when it presses the working die (it used to take multiple presses to make a die). The die is already doubled when the mm is punched. So if both the date and mm appear doubled on coins before 1989, there is a high probability that the coin is MD or DDD

    Strike doubling. Doubled mint mark is the giveaway as it was added to die for the branch mint after the die was made.

    This coin is in nice shape. The ghost image (doubling) should be reasonably visible. I don’t see either to support either 002 or 003. Depending on if you are building a roll collection (date/mm) you may consider putting it in a tube.
