1965 Cent Doubled Die?

Post by MnemenM » Tue Feb 17, 2009 10:32 pm

Hello everyone. I have been going through some rolls of cents lately looking for different things.

Is this die doubling?

It is a 1965 Large Beads Blunt 5.

Thank you for looking.

No, this is mechanical doubling. This is easy to spot. The giveaway is how thin the letters are where the doubling occurs. With a doubling due to a doubled die, the letters will retain full thickness in addition to seeing the doubling.
