    What do you mean "...the best way to proceed." ? Proceed with what? Cheers, RickO

    I don't see any doubling for any recognized Cherrypicker variety.

    It's not the DDO.

    You might want to see about getting some new reference material, the coin you posted is not a DDO

    690,560,004 is approximately the mintage amount of the 70 s business strikes.
    The vast majority of these will have everything match up. It's the ones that don't that you are looking for. lol :)
    Seriously, you need to get better acquainted with what the requirements and markers are for 70 S double dies.
    Google "Wexler Die Varieties" as a start. Keep up your searching endeavors and don't get discouraged.

    Nothing special.
    Keep looking!

    Yes, "proceed" to take the advice given above. Keep a sharp eye out for REAL varieties. ;)

    No offense intended, but this statement is very concerning. "Matched up" to what? Not pictures of the known DD, that is for sure. What are you matching to? :/

    I like the idea that you are looking to match your suspected DDs to something, but I just don't know what you are using.

    Also, various letters in your photos (excellent photos, BTW) have taken hits and are distorted as a result.

    Go to Variety Vista and look up coins for that date and MM.

    Could be a minor variety.

    The 50-D is damaged. The 64-D looks like mechanical doubling on the date

    Go to Variety Vista and look around. You'll hone your abilities by looking at coins there.

    Nice quarter. Too bad you can’t buy much with a quarter anymore.

    Some coins are just plain "Interesting"

    This crowds BRUTAL :D

    I've been where you are at. Lots of normal wear/tear can present themselves in such a way that you get the shivers when comparing your coin to a reference book. My strategy is usually go in doubting it is until I remove all doubt. That's been a long time coming. I still make some mistakes.

    Happy hunting

    Pete mentioned Variety Vista. I can't overemphasize what a valuable resource it is. The very first thing you should do if you find what you think might be a doubled die is to go there first to see if what you have matches the images there. It's an excellent place to learn what true hub doubling i.e a true doubled die looks like.

  • koynekwestkoynekwest Posts: 10,048 ✭✭✭✭✭

    It can be difficult to distinguish a true doubled die from some forms of machine doubling. The best way to learn is to look at as many actual doubled dies as possible at a show or shop.
