Let's call in the "specialists" :
Not a a doubled die.
Thanks I truly appreciate your help and time , how can the expert guys tell if it's a worn out die instead of a Doubled stamp on the coin. I wish I could tell I'm getting tired of being wrong all the time. Do you have any clue how they can tell the difference in a picture what is the key factor that gives it away. Because it looks like a Doubled die to me when I look at it through a loop it doesn't look like a worn die stamp on the coin. That's why I don't understand how in God's name can he tell. I even have a usb microscope and I still can't tell you how or what's the giveaway that allows him to tell. It really a mystery to me. Steve
@Stephen Tolmie ...research “worthless doubling”. Here on Coin Talk or doubleddie.com/Wexler. It will solve the mystery for you...Spark
Please don't think I'm trying to tell you what to do. It's only a suggestion. Don't just look at the photos. Read as much of it as you can. You will learn a lot about how coins are minted and how the different kinds of doubling occurs. It's a very interesting read. After a while it will be much easier to see what kind of doubling you have on your coin. Remember, some of the members are experts in their field but they didn't become so overnight. Stick with it and you'll become one too.
As long as you came to Coin Talk to learn and have fun with us, no one will call you a fool.
As you may have gathered by now, lighting plays a key part in looking at and taking pictures of coins. Glare from coin surfaces can mimic doubling. The more you work at it the better you will get..Spark
