do see what you're talking about, and it looks kind of interesting, but it doesn't look like any kind of doubling I'm used to seeing. Maybe it has something to do with the plating being buckled where the date got struck? ("Metal was pushed out when stamped", as you said.)
That sounds as good as anything I've got. *shrug*
I dunno. This sort of stuff is not my forte, I'm afraid.
No to Hub Doubled Die
I should have been more clear. It is not mdd, but is likely either plate doubling or die deterioration for what you see at the date. My comment had more to be connected to the fact that in the years, particularly around 1988 to about 1992 or 3, and sometimes others, there were numerous non-error and non-variety striking issues or plating issues. These years are typical 'junk' years for stuff that is outside any real quality control. Many Zincolns in this group of years will never survive because they make it too easy for zinc rot to happen.
No. They won't. Why can I say that? I've been collecting for 54 years now, and they never have, except to learn the minting process. To the extent they have grabbed the attention of the millennials, that makes me care even less about them.
From what I here they are changing the world. No telling what it is going to be like, But I believe em'.
HOPEFULLY, I will be dead long before they change it, if the way they say they want to change it is the one they actually do.
The generation that gave us Justin Bieber can be anything they want, ... except forgiven. Taylor Swift almost absolves them, ... almost.
That's the way it happens, A collector born every day.
High grade is the way to go. I learned more in a shorter amount of time, with 64 or better coins.
Now Kurt, where would collecting be without the Shifted Eagle Morgan, '42/1 Merc, '55 doubled, or the 3 legged Buff? These are the coins that many articles and advertisements have been written through the years, and are the coins that attract newcomers to a hobby that you preach is dying. If you kill the messenger, who's gonna carry the mail?
To answer the question you posed, the hobby would still have been just fine without those pieces. In fact, I still cant justify why Dansco puts the 1918/17 and the 3-legged 1937-D in their Buffnick book, while many other varieties are left out.
