1968 s and 1968 Lincoln cent

I'm pretty sure the 68s is a DDO according to variety Vista I got the same images or close to them on the obverse. The 68 has close similarities as the s but I have not seen them on variety Vista. Is there another place I can check them out as always mucho gracias

    There are only two non-Proof 1968-S 1c DDOs listed on Variety Vista. For each of them, one of the primary pick-up points is the G in GOD. Your first picture has the G in GOD out of focus. Your last picture has the G of GOD in shadow. Even if yours is a genuine doubled die, there is no way for anyone to confirm it from the images you have posted.

    "close similarities" doesn't cut it when discussing die varieties. If it's not an exact match, it isn't a match.

    The pictures do not allow confirmation of a DDO.... Can you provide a clear, magnified image of the area that shows the 'doubling'..?? Cheers, RickO
