    Yes machine doubling. There are several die marriages where double profiles are more common than singles.

    Just because I'm old doesn't mean I don't love to look at a pretty bust.

    Bust half doubling is commonly about Liberty's profile, though sometime other evidence can be seen. It is always strike/shelf doubling. Loose, wobbly screw press dies.

    Well, to be accurate, there is one die marriage with hub doubling. The 1820 O.108. It is a class IV doubled die -- offset hub doubling from centers misaligned. Not shelf doubling...true hub doubling.

    The reverse working die was slightly offset during its second hub impression, leaving visible doubling on the left wing, talons, claws, leaves, berries and arrow heads.
