    A note to add and something I did not know. WWHO = (Wexler) Working Hub Obverse & WWHR = (Wexler) Working Hub Reverse. I noticed one of his new listings above and thought I would toss that in to clarify for the future in case you were not aware of this terminology.

    To further clarify, because I'm guessing a lot of people don't know what that term means:

    The Master Hub was used to make a Master Die. Sometimes, more than one master die might be made in a year (the date was added to the master die). The Master Die was then used to make working hubs. The working hubs were then used to make working dies. The working dies were the dies which actually struck the coin. The mintmark, if any, would be applied to each working die individually.

    If there was doubling on the working hub, then any die made from that hub would also show doubling. This is somewhat uncommon, but because a hub would make many dies, when it did occur that doubling would be widespread. Because of this, possibly every coin from that year would show the same doubling!

    Yes, and that's why John is discounting one or two of the 2019 P doubled die cents. It is too widespread to be anything significant. They may still be collectible to some but never going to worth much.

    I am a huge fan of working hub doubling because it has the exact same appearance of a (working die) doubled die. However, since it is so widespread it is extremely common and not worth a premium. These pieces are perfect to recommend to newcomers - just go buy such and such, and you'll have a perfect example of what true doubling looks like for no premium (as opposed to machine doubling and die deterioration, of course). Compare that! to what you think you see, and tell me if it's the same!

    I totally agree with you. They are interesting and I am a fan of all doubled die cents no matter their value. My new problem arises with a box of solid date 2019 P cents that I mostly segregated for B.U. and die crack/chip coins. With his new photos, I now have to go back thru the whole box as I know I saw something else there but did not know for sure if it was worth my time. The heavy thickness on some are easy for me, the moderate thickness is quite a chore with my current eyesight. Live and learn. And I still have 3 more months of winter to figure this out.

    Do you have a link to these listings so I can see what you're talking about?

    I don't look through ultra-moderns, but I still like to keep up with things where I can.
