    Hi all! This is my 2nd error post. The first one I got lots of help with and some great teachings to boot. So, please take a look at this 2000 SC Quarter and give me your thoughts. What exactly am I looking at? I see lots of doubling but I thought that the process that created double dies was eliminated. Yes, I could be wrong on both seeing doubling and on thinking the process was eliminated, but I swear I recently read something on this, so please feel free to educate me. I take no offense, I am here to learn and share. Please forgive the poor quality of the photos, I hope to get much better with the pics..and yes they are in my previous dime folder, so you can ignore those for now and I'll create a new folder for this one later..I really just wanted to get it posted. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Looks like strike doubling to me.

    With the modern single-squeeze hubbing process doubleD-dies (where the doubling was greatest closer to the rim) have, for the most part, been eliminated. The doubleD-dies that we do see now have the doubling closer to the center of the coin. This is because when the hub and the blank die are aligned the hub may "kiss" the blank die and leave an impression. The blank die has a convex surface so the center of the die is the highest portion of the blank die and closest to the hub before hubbing.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank You Hobo, yes...great help. Fantastic explanation. This is the first Statehood Quarter I've seen with any sort of doubling, though I am new to this. Is this sort of error common? I should also be asking, is this "strike doubling" considered an error?

    No. Strike doubling occurs after the strike (a split second after the strike) and is considered damage.

    Don't take my word for it. I could be wrong. But it does look like strike doubling to me. The "doubling" has the shelf-like appearance of strike doubling.

    This type of "damage" is not the same as PMD which may render a coin ungradable. Right?

    To the best of my knowledge that is correct.
