    Got some rolls from the bank earlier and tis one has taken my attention for the last hour or so. It has doubling on the top of the 7, "LIBERTY" is really doubled good. Especially on the T and Y! The MM looks like it has a split serif on the top left of it, IGWT has a slight double to it. Some of the letters more than others. "IN" is doubled on the bottom part. "WE" has doubling on it. More so on the letter "E". the top, middle and bottom of the right side. I really don't think it is MD, but some people will say so as usual. "LIBERTY" has the best doubling, but my worst pics. It seems to be doubled on the top all the way across fo rthe most part. What do you guys think? There are ten pics, but I can take more. Some like I said are blurry, and I can retake if necessary:hail::hail::hail::hail:

    sorry, but I don't see anything.

    The mark above the T is where the copper plate was scraped aside, possibly from the die.

    Here are more to help...

    You can see the doubling on the top of "E", and the thickness on the "TY" in LIBERTY. There is doubling on top of the T too, but I hope this helps. In the other pics, you can tell that the 7 is double don top. there is a slight doubling all the way down the 7 on the left side. The whole top of "LIBERTY" is doubled slightly. will post more if needed.

    Perhaps closer pictures will help. I see what could be die deterioration on those letters.

    does die deterioration cause letters to be doubled?

    I wish they would go back to the old way so we could get close up pictures in. I dont know what they did but now it is very hard to get close up pics up BILL

    Seems like the close-up thing is working.

    let me ask this. when you click on a picture to get a close up, does the picture go up into the upper left corner for you/ or is it only on my computer that this happens/ every was fine till a few days ago. Im wondering if I did something on my computer that this just started happening. Thanks BILL

    When I click on my photo it stays centered but enlarges quite a bit. When doing the same on jessash1976's photo's they are centered but do not enlarge.

    I think it has to do w/program I use for pictures. I use Phototags, which is a cheap program. I am going to try using a different program because you can not see the detail in my pics that far way:mad:

    When I post images all I get is the link to show up in the thread. When I post, you can see the image in the submit box but not on the thread.

    I zoomed in the pics on my' PC and I see the doubling! I think that all of the doubling is Machine (Strike) Doubling. For some reason, when the Die struck the area of the "7" in the Date the second time, it hit solid...pinching off a little bit of the crossbar. However, when the Die struck on the left side of the coin the it appears to have been tilited and the letters in "LIBERTY" appear more thicker like a smearing effect but if you look very close, you can see that the Primary Letters are thinner than normal. Therefore, I believe that all of the doubling is Machine (Strike) Doubling!

    There is no doubling of value on this coin. There is a combination of other types though.

    I see die deterioration doubling as well as some plate shift doubling as well as some places that appear doubled because of breaks in the plating and there is also machine doubling.

    It is an example of a really poor piece of production from the Denver Mint:)
