    It has a very bad worn die strike and his face and neck looks doubled. I know im not good defying doubled dies but I might be wrong. CM181108-162240006.jpg CM181108-162306007.jpg CM181108-162440009.jpg CM181108-162619010.jpg CM181108-162440009.jpg CM181108-162619010.jpg

    Unfortunately, it's mechanical doubling,
    although I agree it's more than average,
    and does 'look' like it could be a doubled die.

    Still a fun coin to find. Many years ago some folks called this profile doubling. Same thing as machine doubling. It's been a long time. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Correct I had an 1824 bust half ,talk about two faced...lol I still wish I had not sold it. Double profiles are fun finds I've found more hall's and nickels with the double profile than others series.

    Yes, and another old term for it was "chatter strike".

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Even though it's only MD, I would keep it. Looks cool even if it isn't valuable
