Thought I had included closeup photo of the date, Sorry for the mixup...

Have DDO-1 in a PCGS MS-63 slab, but the doubling on this one, although a lower grade, seems stronger on the date and different on LIBERTY. I'm confused.

    I believe what you see on Liberty is the metal being stretched to the rim and bringing the letters with it.

    The bitterness of "Poor Quality" is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Looks to be an earlier die state of DDO-001. DDO-002 doesn't have the strong doubling on the date.

    It looks like Die Deterioration Doubling.
    You can see the flow lines

    It's a well-known class VI (distended hub doubling) DDO, listed in the Cherrypicker's Guide as FS-101. See my post above with the link to Variety Vista. Class VI doubled dies can cause a 'smeared' effect, making lettering look thick..

    I wish the date doubling on my 63 was as strong as on this coin..
