1962 5 cents doubling both sides of coin

Post by Myarocks78 » Wed May 22, 2024 7:47 pm

Anyone find doubling not only on the date but also on the back on several letters surrounding the young queen? I didnt get a pic of the leaf, but also found doubling on one of the maple leaves. Should I get this coin graded?

Sorry but that is not a Doubled Die, that is common Machine Doubling, a worthless
type of doubling. In the future, please include a photo of the complete coin when
posting. This sometimes helps when identifying coins.

I agree. It's machine or mechanical doubling (MD) and adds no value to the coin.
