Class IV Doubled Die

Coins | Stan McDonald - author

Class IV doubled die

The doubled die occurs when the dies are made by a sequence of hubbing with an annealing process in between. The centers of the die and the hub are not aligned. Doubling is on all lettering and numbering on the coins. All coins dated 1998 and before using this process may have this error type.

Any coin located with this type of doubling will command a high premium when encapsulated and placed into the market for sale.

Trying to give me an eye exam with that image? That's some severe doubling going on. Thanks for sharing!

Mintage plays a factor in value. Do they stop minting if an error like this is found?
