    I was wondering if anyone know's how common this error is. I recently found a couple of them and they are my first DDO's. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    When you get to that site look on the left side of the page for and click "Doubled Die Listings". Then click on "Shield Cents" and then the appropriate date. But don't stop there. There is a wealth of info on John Wexlers site that will answer many of your questions on all sorts of errors/varieties and what are not errors. It's a book all rolled up into a well organized site. Welcome to Coin Talk and have fun.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    It looks like machine double. There may be also see some die deterioration on IGWT.

    However, @tommyc03 gave you some excellent advice. You'll learn a lot from Wexler's site

    I don’t know how to make a post on here but, I have a 1982 penny with a die crack on the reverse side from the top right hand corner of the building, and it runs through the letters “R and I” all the way to the edge of the coin. Is it worth anything? I believe it’s not small date but I could be wrong.

    Try your best to create your own thread. It's really not that difficult. You definitely need to post pictures!

    Also.. It's not nice to hijack a thread that is not related to your coin in question.

    Worry about worth last. Find out if it's an actual error or not first. Many of us, especially me are not concerned with "worth"

    Die cracks really don't carry a premium.

    I'm not seeing a DDO either. What are you using to take those photos? Under what type of magnification rather.

    Not a DDO, The key for me on these is the 7 . Look at the photos in this reference , at the top of the 7 . It is almost a vertical doubling in size , easy to see with the naked eye, if you are cherry picking a bunch of circs. About 2/3 or more of uncertified ones on any given day listed on ebay are not ones. Jim

    They can work. I bought the same thing in the very beginning. You just need to realize that when you think you see something, rotate the coin, play with the lighting. The cheap USB's really work well with the brown cents. AMAZING actually for the price that you probably paid. The Red cents are the problem and you just need to take more time with them. Keep your loupe handy to verify after you think you have something with the USB.
