    So this is a really cool doubled die Im pretty sure and i have never seen it effecting the ear like this minus the doubled ear ones everyone already knows about. Is this considered like a legit doubled ear?

    Hi :)

    I believe it’s the 1984 that has the double ear variety.
    Imho, I don’t see any doubling of the ear.

    you are correct it is the 1984. 1984 NGC MS67RD FS-101 (037) Red DDO Double Ear Doubled Die Obverse Lincoln Cent. sellers pics...

    It was not cheap either. It cost me $442.00 for this high grade variety.

    When I think I see some weirdness or need to check if something is strange, that's when I whip out my collection of regular old major non-error varieties set. I've filled it with as much minty red as possible so it's clean and clear. It works well as a reference to know what each year is supposed to look like, even if it looks Lincoln has totally mutated on a coin, sometimes, it's just how it is on all of them.

    I can't tell anything from the photos, most likely MD or a small die chip they are common on the zLincolns.

    I wish I had more weekends to read the CoinTalk threads more thoroughly. This one, for example, is interesting. Till now, I've never even heard of "double ear".

    Most doubled ears are a class IV ddo they have a spread that slowly disapates into the perimeter devices. There are definitely some neat DDO's in the doubled ear variety's.
