Would this be the first DD reverse for the 1990 5 pence? You can see it starts in the V and goes through the E in pence.20220707_195939.thumb.jpg.4b90a6d1c26697d2732d457451fd1a0e.jpg

Doesn't look like a doubled die.  Looks more like either machine doubling or die deterioration doubling.  Images aren't close enoug or sharp enough to be sure which.

My guess would be die erosion, not hub doubling.

Wouldn't you be able to tap on the pic and enlarge it enough to see the doubling?

I did, and I can see the doubling.  But the image quality isn't good enough to determine what caused the doubling.
