    I'm pretty sure this is a true doubled die but I do not collect Washington Quarter varieties.

    Just wanted some more expert numismatic reassurance as I have certainly been wrong a few times before!

    But if this is what I'm pretty sure it is.....what a monster FIND.

    Thanks, a lot.

    Why not? It just happened to stutter a bit more.

    I keep hearing Weird Al Yankovic's song "Close But No Cigar".

    True doubled dies have a rotation. In addition to the flat, shelf-like appearance, when the doubling is shifted (vs. rotated), that's another indication it's MD/DDD.

    "True doubled dies have a rotation."

    Not so. Class II doubled dies show misalignment from rim to center or vice-versa around the periphery; Class III doubled dies are overdates or the superimposition of one design element over another; Class IV doubled dies show a radial spread; Class VI doubled dies show thick and/or distorted lettering or other design elements; and Class VIII doubled dies show a tilted hub in combination with one of the other Classes of doubling. I don't believe Class VII doubled dies have been verified. Only Class I and Class V misalignments can be said to be rotational. See the CONECA website or the website by John Wexler for additional information.

    Can't tell. All the places where I look for split serifs are either out of the picture, out of focus, or in an area of glare. The best candidate i see is at the base of the upright of the R in the last picture
