    Wexler lists a DD for 1958, which shows true doubling. I don't see anything on yours. Please compare yours with the photos in the link:

    Sorry but it's not a doubled die.

    Geez, I clicked on this because I thought you found my dog, Lucky. I guess he isn't!

    Also, your coin is not doubled.

    I see, what appears to me, to be machine doubling.

    The photos by Wexler show very prominent doubling.
    Your coin does not exhibit this. If you have to look closer to see something,
    it's probably not true doubling.

    @Chmcc7777,...a few things to note:

    First, anytime you are looking for help & posting pics, always post the obverse & the reverse...always. (For example, sometimes there are markers on the opposite side which will help establish the credibility of the coin - like in the Wexler example).

    Next, the Phila. Mint alone made more than 253 million & certainly wore out some dies.

    Next, your coin, although it is in nice condition, was circulated & took some hits, like at the E & N.

    After 61 yrs. and all the people who have been looking, if another variety was out there, it would have been discovered by now.

    Michael provided an excellent link.

    If your coin shows any doubling (& I don't see any) then it is most likely machine or die deterioration (read: worthless) doubling.

    Still, a nice specimen. Regardless of your experience level, there's always room for more knowledge.

    Thanks for your feedback and I'm always willing to learn because I'm nowhere near knowing it all and good luck on your hunt
