Welcome to Cointalk!!
What you are seeing is commonly known as "Machine doubling or Strike doubling" and adds NO value. Coool just the same.
Just a wise tip: The only thing that you really need is a good loupe for seeing Errors and variety coins. If " No one going by the train sees it than it's not all that desirable to collectors. That's just my Two cents for the evening.
@Ranson …the proper term used is “doubled die”. Since you created the post, you can fix the title before it is too late…just click on “Thread Tools” at the top right of the thread…Spark
@Ranson ? This belongs in the Error section. Not here, wherever that may be! LoL
It's very typical with that close of a view. It's called "strike doubling." That is to say, it happens by virtue of the striking of the planchet. Look at virtually any coin at that high a level of magnification and you're just about guaranteed to find it somewhere on the coin. In fact it's near impossible to find a coin that doesn't have it at that high level of magnification. One doesn't realize that when one's focus is only on one coin.
I don’t think it’s that critical of a situation, thanks for the info though
If not critical then it isn't important to answer you
Correct terminology is important

Sure is critical
