1997 penny Double ear?

    Probably not.

    Here is some advice for you and others posting here to put in one ear and out the other: Keep looking through your spare change or bank rolls and chances are good that you will eventually find something actually "worth" something. Much of the fun is the search. One lady on another forum posted coins that proved to be normal and just spending money many times and then she found an unlisted "discovery coin!"

    One other thing. If you crank up the magnification and look at coins under an incandescent or halogen light, the glare is going to make everything look doubled. Most of the "better" coins we look for can be seen at 7X or less. The best ones can often be seen without much magnification at all.

    Now here is some "TOUGH LOVE." Let's say the coin you posted actually is an unlisted MICRO doubled die coin and you are the first to discover it. In that case, both you and a tiny percent of collectors in the world will be the only folks who care. In the case you find one of these, post it here first (as you have been doing) and if several members think you actually have something beyond a doubt, send it in to Coin World to be published. Once it is published, the grading services will slab your new discovery.

    As I posted above, keep looking and good luck. You cannot find something if you give up. :)

    Not the doubled ear variety but do keep looking.
