    It looks normal from where I'm sitting. Closer/clearer pictures wouldn't hurt.

    @2fun2Bbad your pictures don't show anything that even remotely resembles a DDO. That's especially true of your fourth pic. Could you explain what you think DDO means to you, please?

  • If it is machine doubling and not double die, please help because the way I understood hot to recognize the variety it having split serriffs. The sheriff's are certainly split, and even if the pictures aren't awesome, you can see that. I'm not trying to be anything but the curious student, so any guidelines that could help me, I'd appreciate.
    Wexlers says split sheriff's is how to determine MD from DD, I obviously am missing something, which is why I'm here lol

    From here there are no split serifs. Please specify what serifs you see split.

  • Liberty, every letter and in God we trust the I the N along with pretty much each letter and although it may be hard to see, 2000 is doubled with splitting at the end of the 2.
    Do I have it wrong what spit sheriff's are, because the E in liberty is to my understanding.

    I can't see anything you write of well enough in those images, even if they are there, but this might help you in the future-

  • Thank you so much, I'm one who does appreciate your time and experience. That said, my computer took a crap on me today and so I've had to make some interesting ideas on photography, as you can see it's not my line of profession. Hopefully this gives you an idea of what i was seeing.

    Well unless it's a reflection, there sure seems to be some type of slightly split Serifs going on there.

  • Thank you, I will do my best to be worthy of your time. What would you suggest I do next?

    Hold on. Let's get some more feedback. I'd be curious to see what others think.

    It's getting late. Give it another day or two for others to chime in.

    Keep in mind, I've seen other coins with very slight split serifs that weren't significant enough to be doubled dies.

  • Sleep well, I learned how to drive in Houston TX, I know a little about patience lol. We will see what the outcome is, but either way I want to thank you and everyone for your time and willingness to teach.
