    We would like to see the entire coin first, front and back. Then zoom in on the area in question.

    Sorry but I don't see it other than a 1918-d.

    Just another damaged coin. Everything looks weird with enough magnification.

    Step away from the microscope, it only creates pareidolia.

    You have a damaged 1918 D cent... no numismatic premium. Cheers, RickO

    Although the time frame when the Cent was made falls during wartime production (when a lot of errors happen), there is no sign of any doubling noticable.

    It's damaged- spend it, or throw it back out into the parking lot.
    And if you're going to waste time posting these PLEASE at least put them all in one thread so they aren't pushing interesting threads off the front page.

    Sad these days the hobby comes down to that for a lot of new collectors. Tell them put down their microscope and get a Red Book they ask what's that?

    It's one thing when many guys here are trying to help and educate newbies, especially those who really want to learn. You can kinda tell those who take an interest and those just passing thru.

    But it's a whole other thing when the OP's don't even respond to the feedback they're getting or thank the once helping them.

    Most are looking for instant gratification. They're all looking for the $100,000 error cents and driving most of us crazy with the double die, over strike, clipped, 8 over 9, chipped, dipped, smokey faces, fantastic bow tie, triple column over wheats, double 69 that was struck in 1960 with a small date and
