    No need to do that.
    Your date is clear. It is just Die Deterioration doubling. Not a true Doubled Die

    The correct numismatic terminology is Doubled Die.
    Not double die.

    Get yourself a Yeoman Red Book. The “real deal” is featured prominently in the wheat ear section. @Mattellis

    And, you’ve got work to do on in-focus close-ups. @SensibleSal66 provided the pics for the true variety everyone looks for and wants, but I disagree on the MD.

    Your lighting angle is highlighting the edges of the details (what remains), and IMO, that is mimicking machine doubling…I see no doubling on this coin, machine/mechanical or otherwise.

    There are many threads here on CT that you can find to improve your coin photography skills…Spark

    @Mattellis - I have seen that called the "poor man's" version.

    Almost but no. It is also not a poorman. Sorry, thanks for the post, good luck.

    I disagree. That would be a Poor Man's DD.
    See the deterioration issue to the right of the last 5?

    Sorry paddyman. Just my opinion. It may be a very poorman, but I wouldn't buy it. Thanks for the correction.
