    I'm guessing clock-wise

    I’m guessing MD, mechanical doubling.

    I'm seeing MD but wondering what CW is.

    CW is Clock Wise, CCW is counter clock wise

    Ah, well either way, it isn't a doubled die.

    Thanks for the explanation but it's NAV Doubling.

    When my daughter and I started this hobby we were excited to find a place where we could get help and advice from those a whole lot more experienced than we are. The first few posts you guys were helpful and supportive of our new hobby. But after the first couple of weeks, the helpful posts stopped. We research most coins before posting and I realize that they are probably worthless, but we post hoping for more advice from you guys. The majority of my posts are on behalf of my 11 year old daughter. And most get no comments or encouaging words to keep her interested in the hobby, but she has began to loose interest. I don't know enough to help her with her questions, and she doesn't want me to ask here on the forum because in her words, "What good will it do"

    Bryan, the first coin you posted has mechanical doubling which is fairly common and has no added value or NAV. I really can’t tell much from the 2009 formative years LC by your pictures. There are over 100 doubled die reverses for that particular design from the Philadelphia mint. It is always helpful for you to describe where you believe you see doubling. Don’t let your daughter get discouraged, many folks here work and it has been somewhat slow for a while. We all want to encourage YNs to participate and learn about this great hobby! Some of us have a sarcastic sense of humor but are always willing to help those that want to learn. What resources are you using for research?

    We have been referring to Lincoln cents online, variety vista and wexlers. I really don't want her to loose interest because its a great way for us to spend quality time, I understand about working I go to work at 5AM and get home around 7PM. We believe that the 2009 looks like the 2009 FY DDR-048, with the area in question at the webbing of the thumb. Thank you for your encouragement it meant a lot to Sophia

    Sorry, I don't think your coin is a DDR-048. I have attached a photo taken from Variety Vista. Wexler's site shows the same thing. The arrow points to the doubling:

    Don't let your daughter get discouraged (nor yourself). It's not east to find a doubled die coin. Many of us search and haven't found any yet, but some have been rewarded. :)

    Errors can be found in circulation but it ain’t easy
    I have found only 4 legit doubled dies after many hours of roll searching
    Hundreds of clips, clashes, silver, and various varieties
    Still a little rush to find something I’ve never seen in hand
    My 1984 doubled ear cent always makes me smile

    Sophia gets excited when she finds a woodie or a steelie, I've started collecting 1957 D die chips I usually throw all the 1957 coins in a box to go through later. My wife asked why I started saving them, I told her when I get enough 1957 coins saved up I was going to buy a 1957 Chevy.

    I'm not a collector of varieties so I really can't help with the Formative Years. I read understand your frustration. Please try to encourage your daughter and work with her on coins. It's a fun hobby and a great way to spend time together. If you have a LCS (local coin shop) near you, take her there. Filling a blue Whitman album from change or coin rolls is a good way to keep her interested. Just plug those holes.

    I've been sea ching for double dies for years, and I have found none. I bet there were a few DD that I missed though. It makes me wonder how many.

    We have been working on an album together but whe she found the woodies she seems to concentrate on finding them. My bank let me order a box of pennies I hope that when I bring it home it will get her excited, she found an indian head cent last week that really excited her, it was an 1887 her oldest coin.

    I'm sure we will, plus a lot of NAV coins and a few that need to be thrown away.
