    I see nothing but some circulation wear and perhaps a bit of die erosion, certainly not a DDO.

    To be the DDO, it must match the photos on Variety Vista EXACTLY.

    If you have to wonder about it ... it isn't worth wondering about.

    No go..... the mintmark also shows some 'flattening' on the right side, just like the date.... so, no doubled die.

    Take a look and use a magnifier if need be, but you shouldn't and compare to the photo below from CoinFacts. Appears to be a Large Date, but not a DDO.

    Nothing there that resembles a DD.
    Marks on the letters are insignificant.
    Suggest studying Variety Vista to see what Doubling looks like.

    @Tokheim36a... Your cent is not a doubled die.... Check the pictures above... Your cent exhibits wear and a bit of die erosion. Cheers, RickO
