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.

1998 DDO and wide Am?

#1 Unread post by tkNorris98 »

I think I see doubling on the date and the coin does look like its got a good space between the AM?
Thanks for your help

DDO, No. It looks like Die Deterioration doubling. NAV ( No added Value)

As far as the Wide AM congrats 👍.

Thank you Sal and DC Coins. I'm new to this and appreciate your help. Can you help with the ddr? Is ddr meaning totally separate lettering. What is machine doubling? I try to understand them but get confused. Thanks again

It's a 1989 and I might be confused here but the AM spacing is hard to determine here, have to use the FG.

This is a 1989 NOT a 1998 and it's the 1988 WAM reverse that you look for and you must match it with the correct FG.
