    Is this the kind of doubling we want? "LIBERTY" and IGWT seem to have the best examples of this. Your feedback is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Don

    With all due respect, Don, this is the kind of doubling that I want. The 1955 is the crown jewel. I mentioned this on another thread...back in 1973, when I was in 7th grade, my buddies and I went through scores of rolls of 1972 Lincolns from the bank hoping to find the elusive doubled die. We used to spend hours feeding clad quarters into the coin changer at the local laundromat hoping to get a silver dime back. We might have gotten one or two silver dimes - nothing close to a DDO. You seem to have the same zeal that we did many decades ago. That's a wonderful thing.

    But, in my (non-expert) opinion, if you need a microscope to see it, it isn't a doubled die. At least, not a marketable one. For all I know, someone may give you a few bucks for that one. If so, God bless ya. And, hey, people have found all sorts of valuable coins in pocket change. But people hit the slots for tens of thousands in Vegas, too. Then again, it doesn't happen very often. Not often enough to motivate me to pump my hard-earned dollars into a slot machine, or to pore over thousands of coins in my change jar.

    Again, I salute you. I appreciate your enthusiasm. I trust that you're young. I was when I spent untold hours looking at pennies through a magnifying glass and saying to my friend, "I think that this is a doubled die." It wasn't and I'm not (young). Just an old geezer's opinion.

    Good luck in your quests!

    I've had plenty of decision at local shows with error experts, that think that 55 should be an error and not a variety ...

    Interesting discussion. Then again, it's just semantics, IMO.

    The way I see it, a 1955 Doubled Die is not that much unlike a 1916D Mercury dime. True, one is a regular mint issue and other is a variety (or an error). But they're both rare. Not everyone has one. But they're cool and lots of people (myself included) would like to own one (either one). And that's the key - supply and demand. Are you holding a piece that someone else wants to own? If so, you can get a good price for it. But as I alluded to (or tried to) in my previous post, if someone needs a 20x loupe (or a vivid imagination) to see the DD, you're not going to have people clamoring for it - and opening their wallets.

    No where near the same, think about it . Most dies produce tens of thousands of coins . We already know the 1916-D has low mintage ...

    So where are the tens of thousands, of that 55 Lincoln at ?

    Never struck. It was discovered during normal die life and the die was pulled out of production.

    And many more die were made, not like the 1916-D . Thanks Kurt for stopping in ...

    Imagine what that die would bring at auction.

    Really? Amazing. Didn't know they were that scarce in 65RD.

    Why was the die taken out ( back to my argument ) ?

    Wow, good stinking question. The date is so ... normal. Could more be out there hiding? Should be. What's the pivot point? The 1 in the date?

    By the way, guess which year's BU rolls I'm searching tonight.

    I know 69-S,can still be found in rolls,so I guess that's my best bet .

    Unless I am missing something. With only Three known examples I would say these were an inside job.

    As opposed to what? Elves sneaking through the windows?

    Actually, neither are "rare" in the truest sense of the term, but are very popular and good examples of how demand can result in high prices for fairly easily obtainable coins.

    As for the rest, I'm guessing the OP searches for such coins simply because he enjoys the hunt, and not because he's hoping to cash in. There are many people like this and there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. To each his or her own...

    If there are more of them, I could only put them in the same category as the 13' liberty nickel. And I believe from what I read the die was caught almost immediately, and the mint said they caught all the examples. Therefore I believe it to be an inside job. I do not have reference to this, for you, and am opening myself up to scrutiny.
