what your hugeeyes is NOT 'die doubling'....

these are commonly referred to as "mechanical doubling"

This particular die looks abraded (polished wrongly by mint) and/or deteriorated. Known as the Poor Man's Doubled Die.

Die deterioration but not a doubled die.

Glad to see the die deterioration doubling in the title.

So the OP knew this is die deterioration doubling, but still asked about a DDO. Maybe they thought it might have both on the last 5?
(It doesn't by the way and thanks for posting.)

Also this is a great example how a non valuable coin, from a collectors perspective, gains a slight premium in value simply by getting a nickname.

When the question is solved I have been editing the titles so search engines will index the proper title and other's can see the same information.

Thanks for your diligence in updating the titles Daniel. That's a lot of work.
I've only realized recently the importance of the title, in being able to find a specific title by a "Search" on any site.

Yes, people don't put appropriate titles so it's hard to find. You're welcome
