    No, pics are not blurry. Just your concepts and desire for it to be DD are blurred.
    Your lighting is creating false artifacts too.

    here's a 1970 S DD
    - Look at the IGWT. It is nothing like your coin.
    - don't look at the date unless you see the OBVIOUS clues first like the IGWT

    I should add I think the 1970 S was a Class 1, Class 3 and Class 8 Doubled Die.
    If you understand how the "shift" occurs and by how much, and the specific locations (8) in these classes then you should be able to identify it as such.

    but, just like the Class 1, I don't see the identifiers for the other classes either.

    Nice coin but I'm not seeing any doubling.

    Might just be reflections (most probably, as I look again), but I see some possible slight die deterioration doubling in TRUST. Is that what you are seeing? Even if true, it would add no value at all.

    I agree with clawcoins conclusions from your photo. Jim

    Try a set up with 2-3 lights but scattered/diffused lighting (direct lighting gives the hot glare spots). You may want to do a Search here to read up on photo techniques: a lot can be done with inexpensive setups.
