  1. Welcome Rodney! I am fairly new to this community and have fallen in love with this site. As you probably have found out by now, there are oodles & oodles of info and experienced expertise here. John
  2. Greetings to you three!! Welcome aboard. I am quite new to this site. I am not an expert but I have studied DD's, owned, sold and looked at, who knows how many coins searching for DDs!!! Personally I believe that this not a double die but what are those odd things? You have nicely blown up pics, however, they are too out of focus or something and lacking the necessary clear detail to render a real accurate assessment. Hope you three enjoy this site as much as I do!!! Have a GREAT day! John
  3. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I agree with the Vfox in that this is MD but not for the same reasoning and yes, the thing by the ear merits further research. In reading and viewing pictures in the aforementioned Encyclopedia your coin lacks two complete designs of approximately of the same height. Are there little raised ridges along the edge between the higher design features and the lower or doubled design features? There appear to be some here and there. This is a dead give away of machine doubling. John
  4. Agreeing with the Steven's statement in that this appears to be machine doubling, hub doubling or die chatter, all of which are called machine doubling. The 2nd or doubled partial design is flat and not of the same height as the other full image design. The bottom layer is most likely, as previously stated, surface metal movement. A true DD will have 2 complete sets of the same design and be approximately of the same height, whereas the MD will be flat as it appears in your pics. My humble opinion for your coin. The descriptions given above are for those who may not know the differences between DD (double die) and MD (machine doubling) on coins, medals, etc & not to offend anyone's intelligence. A really good book with excellent pictures is "The Error Coin Encyclopedia" by Arnold Margolis. I have no affiliation with any references I suggest. John

  8. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here is a link to a a nice pic of another coin like yours posted on ebay: http://www.pierre-marteau.com/images/coins...hoebus-1718.jpg Thanks for the pic of this Sweden's emergency coinage, KM # 359, 1718 Daler, composition copper, measuring 22mm, weight not given. During the Great Nordic war, 1700 - 1721, the King Karl XII Carl XII)issued emergency coins (nödmynt). They were issued between 1716 and 1719. Every emergency coin represented a given value of a copper coin with the weight of 756 gram. The government did guarantee the value of the new coins and was supposed to redeem each holder of the coins after the war. When Karl XII was killed in 1718 the government did redeem the emergency coins but only to 50% of its nominal value. Sorry to say Chief, but this is one that is worth about $5.00. The second legend of KM 357 is the one worth up to $450.00.But it is a very interesting piece in that it's obv design differs drastically from the obv's of the other four 1718 Dalers which depicts the God Jupiter on one, Old Father Time on another, War God on another and Mercury, all in a similar pose without the rays. This design is of the Sun God with rays. 300,000 minted. As you stated; Phoebus \pho(e)-bus\ is the legend and means radiant. Apollo the Sun God was also known as Phoebus Apollo because he brought light. Here's a link to some real pretty Emergency Dalers of the same time period: http://cgi.ebay.com/Sweden-Lot-of-5-1-Dale...418152008r27127 Have a GREAT day!! John
