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.

Hello and Welcome ! I think what we are seeing is some kind a glue or adhesive remnants . Maybe someone messing around with another coin and this one ? I may be totally wrong though .

I agree there's something on this coin, it's not a doubled die for certain.

Clear foreign substance on the surface of this coin?

No foreign substances are on this coin’s Obverse or reverse So what could of cause the doubled face you see on this coin’s obverse???? Clearly the split forehead and double chin can be seen in the photo. Thank you for taking the time and looking at this coin.

Sorry but I cannot see the doubling wth the pics provided. However, it is not uncommon to find machine doubling on coins, and the larger the coin, the more prevalent and likely to find it. Kennedy halves are notorious for machine doubling.

Check yours against the graphics I have incuded below

Also, there is no known actual doubled die profile for the 1977-D DDO. It is the date on this year and MM that is doubled, not the profile. Go to varietyvista.com and find the Kennedy section of DDOs for pics to see and compare also.

It is a clear foreign substance on the Obverse of your coin. Look at the Black arrows I posted onto your coin.

Stains of some kind that’s what the black arrows are pointing at…. Stains aside what about the doubling on the obverse…. The double chin and split forehead. Thank you for your patience and input….

Ok it’s not a DDO… the stains are what some people call milk stains had to go back and watch Daniels YouTube video to get the words to describe what is believed to be a foreign substance on this coin all that aside why is the forehead split and the double chin what caused that???? Thank you for your patience…. and time your input is valued and appreciated.
