Really unnecessary comment.
What you said is sad.
It's a very sensitive issue these days and any time.
You may want to read up about the minting and die making process at www.doubleddie.com. Once you have a basic understanding of the process, the frustration level should go down.
If you go back through your old posts, I believe people have given you links to study the die making process. Spend some time looking at them. It will help
In fact, Yes it does -"Very Rarely" due to the smaller number of mintages and much more stringent QA process.
Sorry, didn't mean to offend, I only meant it as to say "I protest!" I guess I'm desensitized, I've been around riots a few times before.
I have, but not many give much detail on proof coins and precisely. There doesn't appear to be great interest in errors on proof coins outside things like missing mint marks.
After carefully looking at this coin and the doubling, while it appears to have the same shelf like details of machine doubling, I'm almost certain it is not. From the looks of this coin, the "machine" doubling, is in fact coming from underneath the devices. Meaning, that machine doubling isn't machine at all, it's man made. The coins being stuck twice provide for a final opportunity for misaligned strikes in the minting process.
Here's a few more pics. You can see lines from yet a 3rd "doubling" strike nearly completely erased but underneath the other two images. Also, the whole coin every detail, no matter how small is doubled, right down to the creases in the jacket and curves in his ear.
Ok.. Cool man.
I also say your coin is Mechanical Doubling.
