    I have a 1972 like that I posted a month or two ago, really thought I had something. Yours is even more extreme, mine was MD for sure.

    It sure looks like one of the "poor man's doubled die" varieties to me, but that's not my area. (In fact, the whole "poor man's" terminology is rather quaint and outdated, I imagine. That's what we called them when I started collecting in the late '70s, anyway.)

    MD. The difference between yours and the one you compared it to, DDO 013 - the Doubling on 013 is in the form of the extra tail piece above the flat part of the 2. Yours does not have that. It's just MD.

    Look at more than just the date.
    There's clues all over that coin.

    Look at the flat and shelf like extension of the chin, face and jacket too.
    That shows a Mechanical movement of the striking hammer die. I think a strike, bounce and pull back to the left.

    I agree it is MD. Look at Lincolns nose lips and chin. All flat and shelf like doubling.
    Beat me to it CLAW.

    because you desperately biased in wanting it to be a Doubled Die ?

    could always send it in to PCGS, ANACS, etc.

    It's easy if you don't see the extra point of the tail bar on the two it is MD.

    your pics aren't the greatest, but if you look at the flat shelf just to the left of the yellow outline on the Chin area.

    Throwing away a good error is tough, what you're feeling right now is normalcy. Getting to know the difference between our friendly and common MD and DD, priceless;)
    Best piece of advice I've heard yet with errors is that most can be seen with the naked eye or a 3x loupe. Anything that reveals itself only on the microscope is not really worth it. Keeps me sane, and from putting every red cent up on screen.

    Found the old pics of my similar, less extreme '72. Also had some doubling on motto.

    If coins like these weren't so educational then we wouldn't throw them back into the wild. Though some of us can't stand to see these coins repeated. We are guilty of feeding them back to the masses.
