    Worn die. Not a doubled die. Worse yet, it's on a zinc planchet.

    Thanks for the new photos.
    Part of the enjoyment of coin collecting is doing some of your own research. IMO you need to do a little reading on the various types of doubling that occur on coins. Here's a few sites to help you learn: http://doubleddie.com/
    And: http://varietyvista.com/
    And: http://www.error-ref.com/
    Both of the coins you posted are not Doubled Die.
    The first one looks like Mechanical Doubling and the second coin was struck by a worn die.
     
  11. Thanks for the help
