Could this be a 1997 cent with a doubled ear?

    Im aware of how faint this may appear, but it looks like it may be a double of the lower ear.
    Clearly not as defined and drastic as others, and the overall condition of the coin is boo-boo, but still worth educating myself. E7737D96-DBFD-4D04-B7E7-E1BC73A75E73.jpeg 9055AD72-1F1A-4350-B47B-E2430648376D.jpeg 4E7E11C3-CC0B-423C-B593-55FE339B4773.jpeg

    @PennyRich Notice in the photo above the uniformity of the doubling on this ear plus the inside of the top of the ear. Yours looks to have had a sharp hit at the bottom but not a doubled die IMHO.

    Sounds good. Just thought I’d get another opinion.
