Interesting site. First rule is don’t believe anything boobtube, eBay, or from anywhere else trying to sell you something or tell you how to get rich. Here are some good sites for reference http://doubleddie.com/, http://varietyvista.com/index.htm, http://www.coppercoins.com/advsearch.php,
We hope you didn't buy it! The doubling you see on those coins can be very deceiving. The above members described what you have. To the untrained eye you would think you hit the jackpot! What you have is unfortunately fairly common. You're looking in the right spot though.

Wow it looks similar to mine but more beat up..lol
Thank you for taking your time to teach us rookies...
