    1962 penny I was wondering if this was a double die. Mostly due to the thickness in lettering and numbers

    Thanks

    If you can try and take a photo strait down. Your coin is reflective,
    Shooting at angles creates glare. Makes the coin hard to read.

    The photos are a little better.:)

    I'm kinda new at all this so it's a learning experience. Please comment even if my asking seems silly to advance coin collectors I honestly would like the help. I have watched a lot of videos and read a lot about dies but still would not know one if it was starring me In the face

    The thickness of the devices are normal for these years of Lincolns.
    Also another thing that was common was MD.
    When you find a Doubled Die you will know it. They look nothing like MD or worthless doubling.

    I have several machine doubled coins and I do understand the difference between the two. However I have also seen coins graded as DD with thickness in the lettering being the only doubling so you don't see a second stamp of the print so to speak. Thank you for replying. I welcome any and all information.

    most of the "thick lettering" DD is during the Single Squeeze era which is 1996 and newer.

    The only really way to learn is learn the 8 stages of DD, and all the single squeeze stuff. Read and compare and ask. when I mentioned the DD was on the Reverse .. that meant the back side, and you replied with one pic of the reverse and multiple pics of the front. But I didn't see anything from the one picture.
