    Please confirm this. I was looking all night and trying not to bring the same questions with the same wrong answers every time but I'm pretty confident this one is the bad word that rhymes with MMO. Help please folks. 1218180950a~2.jpg 1218180950~2.jpg 1218180950b~2.jpg 1218180951a~2.jpg 1218180951c.jpg

    You know what rhymes with MMO?..... No no no :hilarious:

    But I'm no DDO specialist so someone else might think differently.

    I see nothing interesting , just a slight amount of mechanical doubling.

    It does help if you indicate the areas of concern, so we can concentrate on that areas first. Jim

    Billions of these coins are manufactured at a very fast rate.
    I don't know why people expect every one to be pristine and perfect,
    and that any slight imperfection is a rarity.

    I think uTube makes people think this.

    I don't think any slight imperfection is a rarity. I sit there with my tubes I've separated. Then I look with a 10x then a 17x usually and if I have a question I ask. I do not post every coin I run into but isn't this site for this very reason? I understand the minting process and how dies are made , when mm were switched to being done by machine, when the double switched to single squeeze. It takes me all of 3 min to get some help other than taking a chance I could toss a coin worth more than that penny. I think ill take the criticism but know that I'm not just picking coins and saying here guys tell me what this is.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    It was a legit question, especially since you did some homework first. I always hate the people who do the equivalent of holding out a hand full of pocket change and asking "Is anything valuable?". You don't fall into that category

    Hard for me to tell from the pics, but I'm leaning towards Machine Doubling. If you didn't do so, go to Wexler's Doubled Die site and see if you can find an EXACT match. Besides the flat and shelf-like appearance, another diagnostic is the thickness of the letters. MD will have letters/numbers that are thinner than normal
