    Double Die I know just enough to be dangerous

    This one just looks normal. If you need more than 5x magnification to find something, it's not there or too minimal to account for anything.

    You're looking WAAAY to close up.

    Even the very common 'ejection' or
    'mechanically' doubled 1969-S cents
    show more 'doubling' than your microscope

    Generally, use a 5, 7, 10 or maybe 12 power
    glass to look at coins up close.

    You can always use a 20 + magnifying glass
    to confirm what you see, but imo, don't use
    such a large magnification to initially spot varieties.

    And remember, if it takes a 20+ power to see it,
    it's not going to be collectable, in 98.75% of the time.

    The odds are "zero". Your coins are neither doubled nor tripled.

    What does the magnification have to do with if it comes from the same DIE

    If you knew what you were talking about I would take your advice Do you professionally work with microscopes and mapping things.

    I believe what is trying to be conveyed is that graders don't use that level of magnification. If you can't see at 5-10x, then it's not going to be attributed as a doubled/tripled/etc. die.

    You need to take the magnification down a few notches because (and this is not intended to be insulting) you are starting to see things that are not there. It's very easy for this to happen because you start to see all of the flow lines of the metal itself and they can even give some weird patterns that can screw with your eyes.

    I myself ran into this and eventually unhooked the microscope and went with a 30x loupe. Yes this is still way too much, but it's less than a microscope and I find it more comfortable with my glasses, but I still do a final look over with only 5x.

    What does education and smartness have to do with coins And who is us As far as educated I'm Probably more educated than you or you wouldn't be writing this

    Yeppers. I start with a 10x loupe and then I can work up from there. When we start with strong magnification we are bound to find all the imperfections in the thing we are examining. Those probably will not be 'errors' that we want to find.

    Thank you for your comments I do understand about. Powerful microscope is not something that is new to me. My advice is acquired for use of them.

    No education has nothing to do with coins Learning to be educated on a certain matter is another subject. Did you receive a high school diploma
