And the correct numismatic terminology is Doubled and Tripled Die
…and that usually means it is not die doubling. I believe what you have is damage or contact wear. The R/AMERICA is the only area to be affected and if you couple that with no listing from 2 of the leading sources after 44 years, well, you get the picture.
Personally, I run a check for varieties on every pre-2010 coin I get from circulation, and I’ve been tricked before from planchet flaws, wear and PMD. It comes with the territory. Just keep hammering away and keep on learning.
What caused the doubled die 1955 cents.
for those type of coins, I wait till I find another like it.
Can you get better pics?
Hub doubling on the Die. That's why it's called a Doubled Die.
