    HI Karen. Your photos are to blurry to be of help.
    Get a clear photo of Lincolns eye.
    Please post in full size image

    Only Doubled because it's blurry. Please post clear photos and state where you see the doubling. Welcome to CT.

    I hope these photos are clearer than the previous photos. I will try to get a better view of the President's eyes.

    There is doubling on the coin without any photos.

    Karen, welcome to the forum. It's really impossible to see any doubling in those photos. I'm sure it looks different in your hand. Are you using a cell phone camera for those shots? Adding some extra lights might help produce a clearer photo.

    That's not a true statement.

    The doubling is clearly visible on the coin.

    I voted for 'all', because the coin is all right for its age - no visible doubling, though - if it WAS doubled, you would have two cents :rolleyes:

    Hi Karen - welcome to the mix here at CT! Steady your phone on a heavy object, perhaps and overturned mug or glass that sets the distance where you phone's camera has a sharp image. Use zoom SPARINGLY otherwise you will pixelate your photo and make it blurry. Full obverse and reverse and any close-ups of the areas you want to draw our attention to. Be careful not to over zoom and make blurry photos; no good to anyone that way. For this date/mm, the doubled die varieties tend to be the eyelid varieties. RPMs are common for this date as well, so make one of you photos a nice, crisp photo of the date/mm.

    Karen find something to set your phone on like soup can or anything to hold it steady while you take the picture.

    A soup can might just be ideal...decent focal length.

    Welcome to CT Karen. What camera are you using to take your photos? If it is your phone, try resting it on a solid, stable object and gently press the release. Your photos are just too blurry to tell much of anything. Also, we like to see FULL IMAGE photos, not thumbnail, in focus, correctly orientated, cropped to show the full obverse and reverse of the coin, and then closeups of any areas you have specific questions about. You'll get a much better responses if you can do that.
