    First, welcome to CT. Potentially I see your coin with a value of one cent as I see no signs of a doubled die (correct term).

    Doubling or even tripling can occur when there is a misadjustment in the machine making the actual coin. This can cause the dies to slip and slide and jiggle on its way upward from the finish of the strike.Here is one I kept where you can see 3 bounces on the 7 and maybe 4 on the 9, but it is just of my great interest and not worth a million dollars to anyone, :)

    Your poll states "Has to be graded to find real value"..
    You need to understand this also.. Any coin can be graded. They will certainly give you a grade. But if you think you have a variety or error you need to send it to get the coin attributed. That is a different service offered by the coin grading companies which you need to pay an extra fee.
