    Out of focus but 99.9% chance it is damage.

    I agree - looks like the '6' has a contact/hit mark
    on it........damaged, not an error.

    I have had it for awhile and keep looking at it. Was more asking if anyone has ever seen this? To me it looks like a doubled die but not thinking a million dollars just so we are clear. I would think more along the lines of poor mans DDO and also think it is cool. I can take better pics when I get home and only took it from that angle because I thought it would show the number better die wise.

    Hard to tell from the photos but it looks like the 6 took a hit.

    In coins up to the 1995+ coins ( beginning of single squeeze) a separation of that amount would not occur on just a single spot, but as they were double squeezed, over a large if not all of the coin for most types of doubled dies. A true ddo would have affected the whole date and areas surrounding , imo, Jim

    When I look at it in person the whole date does look off. Yes I know it would be crazy just for one number to be off that much and that is why I have been apprehensive to post it on here. Just thought I could get some opinions or someone else had seen something like this.

    looks like the 6 took a hit.

    research and learn about the 8 Classes of Doubled Dies. Then you'll have much more information to ascertain why things can, and cannot, be DD.

    I agree that the coin does have problems. But it is 64 years old and has probably been damaged in multiple ways many times over it's lifespan.

    Does look odd, but then so does LIBERTY, so probably just wear and tear over the years, but a clear, in focus, close up would be helpful.

    The other numbers look fine. Why would just the 6 be doubled?
    The way the doubled dies happen, it would all be doubled.
