    I don't see a whole lot in the letters (been burned too many times by camera/lighting reflections), but that 2022! I see notches.

    Your avatar says newbai, so I'm going to take you at your word. Please don't clean this coin. I would recommend you put it in a cardboard or clear flip to protect it. Somewhere down the line, you may want to make a light swab with acetone to see if the organic material on the reverse can be removed. Can we see a picture of the entire obverse?

    Would be interesting to hear what some of the experts think. @ctf_error_coins , @FredWeinberg

    If we were all the same, the world would be an incredibly boring place.

    It does look rather convincing, but I have a feeling that this is extreme die deterioration combined with some light reflection.

    Quite possibly some MD with Die Deterioration Doubling being the main culprit.

    I'm not an error guy, but I'm bumping this thread as it seems a worthy candidate for discussion beyond common machine doubling. A couple of folks have surmised [extreme] die deterioration doubling. A few others have suggested this coin could be a real doubled die. To me, the yellow looks like notches, the orange like common machine doubling. I just wanted to see if there were any further thoughts.

    Looks like a DD to me and not MD, especially on the date. Nice find! Send it in and be the first!

    You have to remember - newer coins are minted off of single squeeze dies - not the double squeeze that older coins were produced from creating the intense doubling that you are used to seeing, but instead, distortion of the letters and/or numerals.
    An example of single squeeze DD shows no notching, just "fattening" of the letters/numerals........

  • To whom should I send it so that I can verify if this Nickel is true DD or not?
