I don't know where your getting that I am annoyed or that I think you're arguing. i was just pointing out that most people do not know DD's and some will say they see it when it is not. I am doing all I can to teach and help. However, there's only so much time in a day and I only have so much time. So I have to be frugal with it, I do have a family.

However, I appreciate all who watch my videos and comment. I just can't be there all the time for everyone, it's just impossible.

I agree totally. Understanding the minting process is a must. Maybe you might have some insight on this but I find some of the toughest things to id with certainty are issues related to the die itself. Is it struck through debris or die damage, is it well placed and shaped die damage or mistake in design transfer to the die, is it a clash mark ,pmd, die damage, or error in the design? Actually nailing down with certainty those possabilities with limited in hand confirmed examples to compare. Its amazing the odds of some contact marks being just right and perfect to resemble notching, then throw in some die wear and circulation and its tough to have the confidence to toss it in the reject bucket....I may just be ignorant in not understanding some fundamental facts that would help with the final word. Is my thinking flawed with those issues? Would love your input...thanks

One more questuon and this may be obvious. Especially related to new issues, cents and quarters mostly, when inspecting a coin for doubling, is it proper to only consider issues you can see stright on and not angled at all? And if you do see something stright on but not at an angle, is that still a candidate? If im correct, class 6 doubling being tilted would have to be viewed correctly and would look different if angled. But is there any issue w other classes. Its probably an obvious answer but i get hung up on details.....thanks

You just need to make use of the websites coppercoins.com and wexlers doubled dies and CONECA variety vista and match your coin, no match then usually it's not a DD. You can always send some to Pahl of this forum and he can help
