Hahaha I was WAY out in left field haha.
Alright good sir, teaching monument. You ready?
EVERYTHING is doubled/tripled. Words, date, face, eye, hair, Even the facial creases! What is going on here?
whatttt!!!! Haha! I figured. Worth a chuckle though. thank you.
I've read about "flow patterns" and "ridge rings" on numerous threads pertaining to die deterioration. I know what ridge rings are. Can you help me to understand what the indicative flow patterns are? Are you referring to these wavy radial lines? Thank you!

Design Berms (error-ref.com) A case of false double lips often seen on nickels and clad coinage.
Okay, by why is this nickel any different? This nickel sold for around 5k I believe. Clearly, I’m not saying mine was worth anything, but I would love for someone to explain the difference.
@Kevin Mader Super Thanks!
That's a true doubled die. Look at the profile and the eye. The die was doubled to cause that effect on the planchet struck. The worn die caused the effect on your nickel. As the die deteriorates, sharp lines and details become washed out and things like a berm look like a raised area associated with doubling of a die. But it's just die fatigue.
Rounded doubling vs my square-edged doubling, got it lol.
I don’t think I have ever been wrong so much in my combined life haha.
