Jess. You are definitely trying. Buy a box of cents. And find a wide AM. That will pick your spirits up
I also am a looker trying to get a grasp on the fine points between “What is” and “what is not” in this hobby. One day both of us will surprise these guys with the best finds ever seen. Keep it up.
Let's say the die was truly doubled (vs. mechanical doubling which is unique to a given coin). It means EVERY coin struck from that die starts out EXACTLY the same.
Sure, you'll have a little more die wear on the 100,000 th than the 1st, but otherwise exact. If the die is used beyond its realistic life, you'll see the effects of die deterioration doubling at the end. But also the characteristics of that die.
If there's a split serif on the 7, then every coin will have that split serif. If there's no split serif on the 1, then no coin from that die will have a split serif 1.
There might be another die with the split serif 1, but it won't have the split serif 7 unless that's also a characteristic of the die.
I believe you both will one day.
