    Ok, I've asked here and posted a few times with no success as to finding a dd, this latest find I asked my friend and he said it a was machine doubling and I'm like so WTF? What the hell am I supposed to be looking for? I've got doubling as well as on the serifs and on the face of the coin all in the same direction and pretty much the entire coin. Heck it even looks like my previous post of 1971S ....

    Heck even the VDB is doubled!

    So what exactly am I not understanding here? what is everyone looking at because I must be looking at the wrong things.

    Doubling that goes left to right or up and down and looks flat and shelf like is not Doubled Die.
    Doubling that goes in a diagonal direction and are even in height is a Doubled Die

    Look at the first picture you posted of LIBERTY carefully.. do you see how it slightly shifts diagonally? Same for IN GOD.. The shift can be clearly seen.

    Or how about that split corner in the end of the G? MD does not ever do that right? MD always makes a shadow that connects to all points and corners. That is what Meow would look for in DDs. Or is a Cat wrong about that?

    Double Die I know just enough to be dangerous

    Notice how everything is symmetrical in the shifting and surfaces flattened. A prime example of MD.

    MD is very common.
