    Didnt see anything striking about 1978 p mint and looks nothing like double die, my question being is this post mint damage or mechanical doubling?
    Thank you! 20210516_224345.jpg 20210516_224404.jpg 20210516_224416.jpg 20210516_224356.jpg 20210516_224529.jpg 20210516_224536.jpg

    Minor Machine doubling; planchet possibly moved in the collar when struck.

    The planchet doesn't move causing machine doubling. The die moves rapidly back and forth, cutting into the devices. This looks like die deterioration.

    MD - flat-shelflike. Some play in the die/equipment causing damage at the end of the stroke.

    It may not be what you expected but at least it's 95% copper. Thanks for sharing.

    It’s MD with minor damage. Look at the 8 in the date. It’s been scraped.

    I agree with the others, MD with PMD caused by circulation.
