(discovery coin) that would be quite a long shot after almost 40 years.
While I am not an expert, in 1982 and 1983 they really over used the quarter dies and so I would guess that the doubling is DDD, die deterioration doubling. Wait for an expert.
The only reason I even wanted this coin too because it's a 1983 in good shape. Hard to find any without someone wanting too much for it.
Maybe a possible mix of the 2?
which Class Doubled Die do you believe it is ?
I think you should do the "searching" first. Lots of good sites to read up on and compare your coins with photo examples.
I'm newer to errors and I didn't even think there were different classes of doubling. I seen some of the class 4s and 2s, similar appearances, but I'm still not sure. I see some with that metal flow youre talking about, but on their examples, the doubling is more apparent. Shoot, maybe its a new class, hah. For doubling, whether machine doubling or actual doubling, its really the most odd I've seen.
No. Just Die Deterioration doubling.
Any time you see any striations you can pretty well be assured that the die is in it's last hours and had deterioration of other elements too.
For instance, the square edge of the depth of letters get worn away and get flat ledges around them, such as your example.
Maybe. What keeps throwing me off about it is how strong the strike is of the "doubling"
Yes you are seeing what you characterize as "doubling" but due to the deterioration the elements are worn and are enlarging starting with "shelf-like" features, which one can characterize as "doubling" of which it is not a Class of "doubled die."
