Doubling in rim

4 posts in this topic

I noticed that the left rim of a 1985 penny appeared to be doubled and am wondering how this occurred. It doesn’t appear to be a DDO so I’m very confused, your help is appreciated : )

I'm not really sure how to answer that.

The obverse die shifted slightly to the right as the coin was struck, creating a slightly off-center strike on the obverse. (Not to be confused with a true Off Center Strike, in which the planchet is not centered between the dies when struck.)
