    Ok, I'm making this first comment in Jest and a little Tongue in Cheek. You'll understand. ;-) LOL

    I Dare you to TRY to tell me this isnt the illusive Doubled Die Coin that I've been Relentlessly persuing!
    I found it this morning and got a little more excited as most of the Devices on Both sides of the coin showed some kind of Doubling.
    So,,, without further delay here she is. 20190916_083520.jpg

    Not trying to burst your bubble, but I believe it to be DDD.
    I am still learning though, so wait for more informed/experienced opinions.

    It's probably not.
    Changing the hub process in (1996?) eliminated most of the doubled dies.
    Although there is a nice one on the 2009 Wash DC quarter and some others.
    It's easier to tell if you really have something if the coin is in very good condition.
    When the coin is worn like this it's usually something else. As paddy already identified. There was a recent post of a very old, very worn silver quarter that had the marker to identify it as a DD. But it's easier to tell when the details are crisp.

    Hang in there. Experience is the key. There's doubling, just not DD.

    Instead of people trying to find DD's in circulation, maybe buy rolls of certain dates that have known DDs.
    IDK, and I am too lazy to look it up. but I don't recall there being a Maryland quarter DD. Is there one? My point is that it is insanely difficult to find a discovery coin,
    than it is just to search coins that already have a known DD. Get some rolls of 2009 DC quarters, etc. Maybe you can get lucky.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Once again, do your homework. Read the section on Worthless doubling on www.doubleddie.com. You need to concentrate on learning how dies are made, since that is where the source of doubled die coins. As you learn more, you'll easily spot coins struck from worn, deteriorated dies like the one you posted.

    While not related to DDD, here is a pic that will help with Machine doubling

    Yep, you've got it. It absolutely IS the illusive doubled die. It's just that those aren't very elusive. ;)

    Would you tell a child who found a $50.00 Monopoly bill to go to the store and use it to pay for an item.
    In would rather tell the truth than make someone think they have a real deal ;)

    Peace :angelic:

    Cant. Blame a guy for trying. And thank you for your kind thought Brina. Yea, I'd rather the guys give me hard time. It keeps the fires burning in my gut.
    But I'll not shy away from posting what I think
    MIght be a DD, just because they might give me crap.
    I'm too stubborn to just try for something safe, and too dumb to quit.

    It's really not a big deal. I've never found a 1960 small date cent, or a 1970-S small date cent or a DD. (And I am a dinosaur.) But I have found a ton of other cool stuff. Sometimes stuff falls into your lap and sometimes it doesn't.
