Please Read Before Posting A Topic

In the title please put date, denomination and type of coin design and a brief on what you are asking about.
In example: "1995 Lincoln Cent Missing 5" or "2010 Roosevelt Dime With a Line inside the rim".

All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

Comment on todays era of doubled dies.

#1 Unread post by Coinaddict411 »

I have been posting alot of minor ddrs and a few ddos. With the single squeeze method being introduced 25 yrs ago or so it seems that the major doubled dies are no longer possible. Leaving just the minor ones out there to find with the occasional more major class 9's. My question is about value. While I have alot of fun finding these...will they ever have value like the old days?

When I was growing up in the 1970's my image of a doubled Die was just like the 1955 ddo and now as thing get more detailed they seem to get too small or tiny for my eyes . I personally would rather collect ones like the 1969S DDO but that's my opinion.

No, they will not attain the same value as the 1972 and back obvious doubled dies.

At a coin show if you buy a 1955 DDO, you have no problem knowing its a DDO just by looking at it. Any of what I personally call the micro DDOs are undetectable to the naked eye. I think the hobby will always favor the easy to see error coins vs. those needing a microscope to be detected.
