1950 DDR lincoln cent and 1966 Quarter ?

#1 Unread post by esalas77 » Wed Mar 29, 2017 7:31 pm

I am new to collecting and I have started Looking through change for variety's. recently I found a 1966 quarter and a 1950 wheat back penny both of which appear to have doubling on the reverse . Could this be strike doubling? If it is not do they have any value? Any info would be helpful.
Thanks a lot!

You will have to download these as jpeg and not zip files. I deleted these for the protection of the members because it is risky to have attachment to be downloaded onto their computer. Thanks

Thank you. I will try to attach them to this email in JPG format. One of the eight files, for some reason, looks like a .PNG format.

The quarter definitely looks to be Mechanical Doubling. Hard to see the Lincoln cent because it blurs when enlarged.

I agree, these are mechanical doubling and not doubled dies.
