    Maybe I'll get this right this time!
    I have a 1996 penny I'm about. It looks to have doubling on the date and doubling on some of the letters on the reverse. I'll try to upload some pics again. Thank you

    I appreciate your assistance with this and learning the difference. In other photographs itI have of this penny other marks in the letters and numbers are visible. I don't know why they didn't show up in these pics. It almost looks like a different penny altogether. What could make this happen? I want to get a Jewelers loop so I can see them more clearly. For some reason it won't let me post other pics of this penny that I have taken. Again, thank you so much for the information. Reading the articles you sent will definitely help me in the future! Thanks!

    An old worn die. DDD for short. There are numerous ways a coin can show Doubling and the majority of them are NAV or No Added Value Doubling. This is a NAV Doubling coin.

    These are two other pics. Do they show the same as the last?

    Split plate doubling. Very common.
    It looks flat and shelf like. That would be MD or mechanical doubling. Again very common. Slightly blurry when I enlarge. Both are NAV Doubling.

    I think Collecting Nut has it right . the super thin copper plating on these zinc cents can make our newer cent coins have all kinds of different problems. I do not like the copper plated zinc cents at all.

    I have another question if you guys don't mind. This is a 1972-D Eisenhower dollar I have. My question is does the top right near the Earth with the w and dot look normal? Also it looks like an S and A below eagles feet? Does this mean anything...?

    I've noticed that too! I kept thinking, all these can't be worth more than face value! Ha!

    Just stains and circulation wear and tear.

    I don't like them either. It's like they wanted to make biodegradable coins starting in 1982, and succeeded with the penny. Seriously. The only zinc cents that are holding up good are the ones that are proofs. All in circulation for any amount of time are junk.

    I've always wondered about this nickel...the reverse looks too black to me to be tarnish but the obverse looks normal..Any ideas why? Thanks guys!
