    The 9 in the date specifically is extremely odd on this coin. I believe this may be some kind of die deterioration? Is anyone familiar with this sort of error? I see what I believe is strong machine doubling throughout the obverse face. It doesn’t appear to be a true double die, I don’t think. Note: the mark to the northeast of the mint mark is a fiber.

    IMHO looks like a minor die chip in the 9, going to wait for more opinions

    It is a die chip. It happens when a chunk of the minting die breaks off leaving a void in the design. Meow keeps all of the ones Meow finds.

    No.
    And the correct numismatic terminology is actually Doubled Die.. Not double die. For your future posts.

    Neat Die chip on the 9.
