If it's what I think I see then I got a pretty good BD present after all....LoL

I believe that is machine doubling. A true doubled die has features doubled by slight rotation about an axis running through the center of the coin face. Note how the doubling is like that here:

"IN GOD WE TRUST" looks like the letters were shifted along the edge whereas "LIBERTY" shows greater doubling on the L than on the Y.

One day, you're going to find the queen of all errors in a roll search.

I look at every coin for anything. Sometimes I get very disappointed when I see nothing and then all of a sudden there it is, no wait that's not one. Oh well I guess I'll just look somemore.
