2019W is the LB doubled?

This is my 2019W still in the plastic it came in. It has developed a spot on Lincolns head, and a spot under the JFM on the reverse, also it looks like the initials are doubled. Has this reported? What does everyone think?

    Would need better pictures. Rather hard for one or two letters to be doubled. Could be due to die wear.

    Who cares? Stop wasting your time looking for this type of microscopic nonsense. The "fortune in your pocket change" type videos have created a myth of value for very minor "errors" and "varieties". I have no idea if the coin you show has anything special about it as the photo is not good enough to tell.

    I roll hunt and I've made over $700 on this kind of microscopic nonsense, in the last month no less. I will one day get my name on a microscopic nonsense find. But thanks for your input and have a great day..

    The spots will progressively get worse. The pictures of the initials are not clear, no obvious indication of DDR. Cheers, RickO

    You achieve that milestone here and now.

    Do you sell on eBay?

    I tried to get better pictures. I haven't opened it yet, so it's harder to photograph. I hope these are better. One other question I have, should I send it for grading? I know that there are only 147k or so made.

    It's nice that you inspect every coin. Maybe one day you'll end up finding something notable.

    Most of the people here started by going to the bank and getting rolls to fill their books. I know I did. Both Cents and Nickels.

    you should have cut that coin out as soon as the spots started developing. they will not get better and will only get worse and the problem with lincolns, is you cannot dip them like nickel/silver/gold etc. if the tpgs have a restoration for red copper with spots, i am unaware of it.

    and at the same time, you could provide better images. :)

    if you are serious about discoveries, you should be on the coneca forum, at least and be submitting coins for in-hand examination. it is a little more expensive than post for free opinions BUT much faster, 100% more effective and you will have gained invaluable experience.

    hope it helps. :)

    Thanks I will try that. I don't sell on ebay yet. Just mecari for now I have a couple of books and I use wexler online and copper coins. My books said to sale here and coneca. But I haven't posted anything yet. I have found multiples of almost every doubled die Lincoln there is. I'm missing 5. And I really don't know how to proceed. I'm going coneca, and see what I can find. Again thank you for the advice.

    Stop and think...

    If there are only 147,000 made. At MOST they used two die pairs. So somewhere between 30% and 100% of the mintage would have the same "doubling". [Again, I think it is die wear not doubling.]
