    I see what may be a small die chip on the end of his chin, but no doubling of anything.

    Both : I can't see it 'cause it's not there and I don't think it is 'cause it's not.

    The most help we can be for you is to direct you to literature that teaches you about die doubling. It doesn't do you any good to look at coins in magnification if you don't know what you're looking for. Take a read here and let us know if you have questions:

    As you are relatively new, you should also read about the difference between single squeeze hubbing coins ( since 1997 ) and the real doubled dies ( multiple squeeze hubbing) that was before that time ( some transition as the change was not in just one year). Read the Class IX of DD in the above reference source, as they are caused by movement similar to that of mechanical mmovement (IMO).

    John Wexler writes,” Class IX. God Only Knows – This class of doubling is for those doubled dies that are simply unexplained. It is for those extremely few doubled dies that defy logic and common sense. It is where the physical evidence does not support a reasonable conclusion on how the working die was hubbed to produce the secondary image.”

    What this indicates is that there are very few of recent coins past 1997 that could even be called class IX DD and probably should be called 'normal' or mechanical doubling at the most.

    Totally in my old collector opinion, Jim

    If you are referring to just below the bottom lip on the 1st and 3rd pictures posted, it looks like both coins took a hit causing a small cut or gash. IMHO.
