1969S double die reverse?

7 posts in this topic

From what I see in your scan -- I'm quite positive that is mechanical doubling damage (MDD). As I mentioned in another post -- MDD is extremely common on the 69-S cents. Sorry ....


Below is a link that would be a classic example of MDD on a 69-S cent from an eBay auction that recently completed. The doubling on the VDB initials are from the MDD. Since the initials are incuse (not raised) they tend to look like two images. The seller does explain about strike doubling and that's fine. However, the $104.27 hammer bid is $104.26 too much. This coin is worth face value. So -- even when you explain it to bidders -- they still don't get it and bid on this stuff with stupid money. Amazing!!!!

Speaking of doubling -- this ones interesting. Here's a little sneak-peek for you. I will be bringing this coin with me to the upcoming ANA Money Show to be held in Atlanta this April 7-9 (I think that's the dates). Anybody that wants to examine this coin may do so. I hope I get to meet a lot of forum members. Is there a usual place everybody meets or gets together for dinner and sharing stories? The last time I was at the ANA Show in Atlanta was Spring of 1995. The buzz at that show was the 1995 doubled die. I guess lots would have changed by then.
