    Is it or isn't it me gold schilling

    Good evening, Have you googled the coin to see what the weight should be? That's the first thing I'd do. Also, I think there are various "scratch" tests you can do to see if something is really gold.

    Doubled die vs double strike

    As a materials engineer and a coin collector, I've never ever heard of that effect and politely point out that it's probably wrong. Can you point me to some literature that shows that?

    Doubled die vs double strike

    In all my years of collecting, I haven't heard it explained this way. It makes more sense than "a doubled die shows the image rotated slightly around a common center whereas a double strike shows doubling laterally or vertically". That may still be right, but the "same depth" explanation makes sense, too. However, it doesn't help when there is significant wear on the coin.

    When you flip the coin over on the horizontal axis (i.e. hold the coin by the left and right sides, then rotate it so the bottom goes over the top), does the image stay in the correct orientation?

    steel penny

    Pennies minted before 1982 are exclusively copper which means they'll stick to a magnet, too.
