    I don't see anything that would point to a doubled die. What do you see and where?

    I pretty much see it on the entire LIBERTY, but I think it is machine doubling which is an artifact of the strike and is not worth any premium.

    Ima' say the IN in question looks flat, which is almost verbatim , of what machine doubling is. If it were a true DD then the doubling would be more rounded.

    Hi! I also found a 1979 D dime that looks doubled but I’m not sure if it is. The word “Liberty” in itself looks interesting, but I’m not sure if that just happened with ware. “In God We Trust” seems doubled. The mint mark is almost completely filled in, and the date seems interesting because of the “7” and the last “9.” What do you think? 3F9365A6-94FB-4A5A-B030-3F5BBBECE5EB.jpeg

    Hi, I can't really see anything, but you're most likely taking about machine doubling (aka worthless doubling) it's helpful to read up on errors before searching for them. Here's a great resource:

    Machine doubling:

    Good luck!
