    It koi’s to me like this could possibly be a ddr. But need some help proving or disproving. Thanks! 978E80F4-6276-466F-B120-BA9545F5E6E9.jpeg 1993CEE2-C7DF-4B37-BBAC-A795B932043D.jpeg FC3A7261-AB87-4B51-93C7-271AFA6BCE44.jpeg 0569A3F3-CE0A-4F21-A0E5-6945ED9CB6CE.jpeg 625F85C2-4A7C-493D-AB4A-5D5AA9A4F404.jpeg

    Well, I will need crisper photos to check for doubling and/or markers. It's very difficult to get a clear picture holding the coin in one hand while manipulating the camera/phone with the other. Place the coin on a flat-backed surface and isolate the coin in the field. Post your photos here for the community to have a look. In the meantime, you may find this link helpful: http://www.coppercoins.com/lincoln/diestate.php?date=1984&die_id=1984d1dr001&die_state=mds

    Your photos are better and with time, you'll get even better. Unfortunately, all I see is the remnant of a clash in the third bay of the Memorial and thickness in some of the devices due to an aging reverse die. This looks to me to be a normal cent.

    Suggested Searches/Reading (using the Search tool here at CT and broader amongst the various sites);

    • Visit Doubleddies.com to read up on Doubling. Lots there about DDOs, DDRs, RPMs and non-value added doubling (which isn't actual doubling, just the illusion of it)
    • Red Book for the more collected Doubled Dies/RPMs/Errors
    • Do a Search here at CT for photography tips. There are a ton and a number of members here that have mastered low tech, high-res photos that rival expensive setups. Most of the time, its quality...not quantity. Tips here can help collectors get their information in front of folks without egregious effort
    • Visit sites that specialize on doubled dies: Coppercoins.com, Doubleddies.com, VarietyVista.com. You'll note that each site has it's pros-and-cons, but they will help train your eye to spot a doubled die/RPM and the dates/mms of interest to you

    Of course, we are here to help you along the path and at some point, you'll be in position to help others. It's about teamwork. So remain patient and overlook a cranky post from time-to-time (members are actual humans so some days are better or worse than others) and you should have fun expanding your varieties collection. Good luck on the hunt!
