    I see no doubling at all, just light shadows and some possible MD.

    Ok, I don't see anything either. But here's how to tell... If the doubling looks flat and squared, then it's worthless doubling called "Machine Doubling" or "MD" for short. Then, there is another type of worthless doubling... it's called "Die Deterioration Doubling", or "DDD". It has rounded edges on the doubling, and kind of slants down front the letters or numbers in which you see the doubling. But TRUE doubling has an exact copy of the actual letters/numbers and can be either the same height as the area in which you see doubling, or it can look like it sunk into the metal a bit.

    Someone else could probably describe it better, but this is how I tell the difference.

    I see that the DDR-002 for 1982 (Philly) is for a small date zinc. I do not see any doubling on your coin...Spark

    The only doubling I see on your coin is NAV or no added value doubling.

    Sometimes Variety Vista and Wexler don’t match up. I was touting what I found on Wexler...Spark
