    The doubling is common on cents that contain zinc, which the mint started using in 1982. They are many types of doubling that are worthless and this is one of them. Only worth face value and not a mint error.

    One term, NAV covers all of the you think it’s an doubled error but it’s not. Stands for No Added Value Doubling.

    Cents were constructed of a zinc core plated with a micro thin layer of copper from late 1982. What you are seeing are linear plating bubbles where the plating did not adhere to the core properly. The 8 in the date is machine doubling, no added value.

    Worn die strike. Die Deterioration doubling.
    Nothing to do with a true Doubled Die variety.

    Welcome to CT @Jaybugga. Thanks for good photos.
    I think your question(s) have been answered, but starting out, we all had a learning curve to go through, so hang in there and enjoy the hobby. Good luck.

    Sometimes I've heard that observance on the date refered to as "pushed plating doubling".

    That "wood grain" you see is a consequence of the plating process. Around here it is often referred to as "linear plating bubbles".
