    Based on other forums, platforms, etc., I've seen things that look, "normal" be considered as true doubled die's. I'm fully aware that everyone has their own opinions, views, and apparently in my case, a "lively imagination", haha.

    I'm curious to see what the thoughts are regarding this 1981 penny I came across. As always, Thank you all in advance.

    And most of our opinions are correct.
    You really don't need to state that. Just ask a simple question and we will do our best to give you the answer you seek.

    I've checked/compared it to varieties of other years, but I'm not finding any varieties for 1981. However, this appearance matches confirmed DDO varieties for different years?

    It doesn't work that way.

    Please understand that, that comment was not in any way, a jab at any of you, or your opinions. It was a general statement. I'm here for education and insight, not to argue with folks who have clearly been doing this much longer than myself.

    I understand it doesn't work like that, but since I couldn't locate anything from 1981, I figured id look at other years and varieties as comparisons.

    Ok.
    Have you looked at any websites to first educate yourself in understanding what a true Doubled Die is?

    Then to learn how worthless doubling is identified?

    Hi penny and welcome to CT! I think what @paddyman98 is saying is if you check the websites provided and don't find the error or variety for the same year you have then it probably doesn't exist for that year. It's like you are looking for confirmation in reverse order by checking other dates for the same thing!! Hope that helps!!! Paddyman, if I'm wrong please let me know!!!

    I'm pretty sure that what you have is machine doubling. It could be die deterioration doubling, but before I rule it out, I would need to see an image of the whole coin, not just bits and pieces.

    P & G, I guess we will just have to disagree. I do not see this as die deterioration doubling. All I see, even after reading your link, is machine doubling.

    You could be right, I think we still have the same thoughts though. It is not a doubled die.

    Either way, both posts gives me a basis to search for either description and educate myself more. I’m grateful regardless of “right and wrong”.
