Strike Doubling – Push Doubling – Machine Damage Mint Error

Push doubling mint error

Strike doubling, push doubling and slide doubling are all types of machine doubling that are similar striking errors but are so minor that they don’t add much value to a coin. These are caused by a loose die but it is NOT a Doubled Die. All strike doubling is considered machine damage and will show on the sides of the letters, numbers and bust as a flat shelf-like doubling, and is actually a flat on the side of a design element were the die actually pushed or slightly gouged the metal as it retracted from the coin’s surface just after it struck the coin.
