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.

I can't confirm nor deny that you have a DDO here or not . Please explain . Just a normal circulated cent . To correct your title, it should be Doubled Die NOT Double die

With the one photo you posted it is to out of focus when you zoom in. I am also unable to tell if this is a Doubled Die or not.
May I also recommend this site Glossary of Error Variety Terms
This site will help you understand the different Numismatic terms that are used

Please be advised that the RULE for posting coins is ONE coin per-topic. DO NOT post a coin to be compared to, as those who are giving you their opinion know what the coin should or should not look like.

For future reference, when posting photos of a coin you would like someone to look at, you NEED to post a Cropped photo of both the full Obverse and Reverse. Try to take these photos as clear and close as possible. Next take some photos of the area in question, again as close and clear as possible. It would also help if you could find some way to point to the area in question or give a detailed explanation of what you want to be looked at. DO NOT just say "What Error is this?", "What do you think about this coin and what is the value?" or "What can you tell me about this coin?". We would happily provide you with sites you can research coin errors and varieties.

If you need a photo editing program, there are three free ones that come to mind. They are PhotoScape, Inkscape and Gimp. Of the three PhotoScape is the easiest to use. I use PhotoScape and it will do everything required to post photos on the board. Daniel explains quite well in the following two topics, POSTING PHOTOS plus his video on this same topic Daniels posting Coins Video on posting coins

Go to and or and find pictures of the DDOs and DDRs for this date. Match them to yours (if it is one)

This can save you a lot of time in having to post. Although if you still are unsure, we are here to help
