Finding a coin struck with both the obv and rev die being doubled is extremely rare. I imaging some may exist, but I'm not aware of any examples. I would think finding something like this would be lottery odds x another large number.

There is a possibility of finding something new, however, you need to point out the characteristics of true hub doubling (you can find these on doubleddie.com and by studying the die making process).
