First, welcome to the neighborhood, Kevin!
What dark mark are you referring to? You'll find a lot of useless information on BoobTube. They're not very reliable over there.
It looks like a large date to me. ~ Chris
If it points more so to the southeast, it is a large date. Supposedly the
Position of the 7 is important as well as the " strength" of the lettering
In LIBERTY....agree with Chris...you tubers are somewhat overly dramatic...want to increase their viewer and subscription numbers..
Welcome to CT.
NOTE: Disregard this comment. I confused the web pic with your coin, sorry.
The pics you downloaded do not show any doubling, IMO.
The only thing I was watching on YouTube with someone showing a actual DDO 1970s that sold on heritage auctions. I wasn't listening to them I was getting a break down the coin that looks like mine. And if you say I won't get rich off and then please let me know what variety DDO is, because the only ones I know about our worth pretty good money
Here is a link to the 1970S listing on Wexler doubled die site. There are a few other DDOs for that date listed.
For doubled dies, I would recommend bookmarking
There is too much junk on YouTube and it can be difficult to find the good ones. Case in point, your youtuber said darker spots are a diagnostic. Spots are due to environmental toning and can occur randomly on any coin. Stick with the sites listed above
@Kevin Farley. Dark spot? In the first photo of the coin showing the "spot" it just looks like a stain, in the second one, it looks like verdigris in the same general area. As mentioned, YouTube is not a reliable source for information in most cases. The posters are looking for clicks and not really interested in giving correct information.
On the large date, the top of the 7 is lower than the top of the 9 which is the case here. On the small date the tops of the two numbers are even.
