    Lyrics Giving this one more chance with lots of hope

    20170714_014359.jpg 20170714_014359.jpg 20170714_014352.jpg Alright here's a penny for you. There is obvious doubling on it. Very heavy on the date also in Liberty also in the back on the e on one and e on cent. also around lincoln's face bust... etc.

    and strangely sometimes the doubling is to the left (mint mark) or to right (date)


    ok i cant find a coin like this anywhere.

    first can someone explain why this doubling happened? Then can someone please explain what kind of doubling it is?

    Thank in advance to all of you for your polite, educational, constructive future posts. Remember not all of us know what you know.

    I believe what you have is caused by "Die Deterioration Doubling". When Dies get worn down around the edges of the design they can produce this kind of
    doubling image. It cost money to make money so the mint get as much use out of the Dies as they can.

    I hope someone else will agree. The reason you will not find much of any info on this type of Error is due to it being a more common type of Error that does not bring a premium of value with it. Here is a link with some info.

    The coin doesn't have a premium, it is worth one cent. That type of doubing is very common.
