    Hi guys. I'm trying to figure out how to label this coin before putting it in a sleeve. I think it's a pretty neat find and I want to keep it regardless if it has any value or not, but I'm not sure what exactly is going on here. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help that any of you can offer.

    You're probably looking at the lines around the people, letters and numbers, and thinking that it is "doubling" , but alas, it is not true doubling.
    In the Beginning There Was......excitement, then reality set in....when I, we, and you found out that what we are seeing is what is referred to as strike doubling or machine doubling, which unless it is EXTREME really matters not at all. Even then, it rarely draws much of a premium, if any at all.
    That's just my 25 cents worth.
    Other, more experienced members can explain it much better than I.

    The nose is a textbook example of MD, flat and shelf like. I have never seen one that severe. That series is known to have die chips along the rifles and hats.

    That's what I was guessing (as much as I wish that it were the real deal), but I wanted to double check before I stick a label on it. It's the first coin of that type that I've found where the MD is so pronounced, so it got me curious at first glance. Lol. It may not be worth anything but 25 cents, but it is somewhat visually appealing if nothing else. Thanks for the help guys.

    BTW, I can't help but notice your mint luster and your proof-like qualities, and your rainbow toning : the Red of your hair, the Blue of your eyes , the Pink of your lips.

    Lol, non taken Hookman. My girlfriend and I (Jacob & Jessica) share an account on here. I haven't gotten around to making one of my own yet since I don't use the site much, so I add my name anytime that I post anything. I'll have to add a picture of both of us so that no one thinks that I'm an undercover guy using a chick's pico_O:bag::vamp:... Lmao
