    I truly need HD photos that are sharper to make an educated guess.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    I don't believe it's a DDO for the following reasons:

    The mm looks doubled. Doubling occurs during die manufacturing. The mm is punched into the die after its made. It wouldn't be doubled like the date. Yes, it could be a RPM, but your talking lotto odds to have both errors

    The digits look thinner a normal coin. This doesn't happen on doubled dies

    I can't see any split serifs, but the pic may not be clear enough.

    Interesting coin. I'll wait and see what others have to say, but those are my reasons for believing it's not a DDO

    the images hurt my eyes

    try a neutral background color ... like white or black paper.
    it helps the cameras white balance .. if you don't know what that is .. then just *always* use black or white paper as the background.

    Agree with the above. Including that the images are end up way to blurry when close up.

    I don't mind having some fun. I'll go out on a limb here and say this guy is a winner. Unless some weird reflection, based on this....

    OP needs to spend a half day, or a full day or more to learn how to take clear, in focus pictures.
    put aside the coins .. and learn to take pictures.

    I've stopped posting to posts where the images are fuzzy and out of focus for members who have been here for a while. Why put in so much effort to try and determine what it is when the OPs don't put the effort to take clear pictures.

    I hear you. That's my thought as well. It's very frustrating for those trying to help. You kinda wonder sometimes if it's not intentional.

    FYI, the only DDO's listed on variety vista are from proof coins. OP's coin is not a proof.

    Thanks for letting me know. I won't use your's or Fred's anymore. In fact, from now on I'm not going to name anyone without their permission.
