    1972 penny. Possible double rim?

    I went coin roll hunting today, and I came across a penny from 1972. No mint mark. However, The rim was very thick on the obverse side. On closer inspection with a magnifier, I discovered some lines that look like doubling. They are most visible near Liberty and the date.

    1972 penny. Possible double rim?

    There is a double die 1972 penny and they are kinda rare. The doubling is more prominent in the word LIBERTY on the face of the coin. Here is a good example.Click image for larger version.

    Give me a second, my magnifier is not that good. I'll work on getting a better photo.

    I set it to black-and-white this time. You see the line in the middle of the rim? Well, that's what I think it is.

    Like I said, my magnifier is not that good.

    Slightly off center in the collar. Happens thousands of times a day.

    Time for more coffee.

    For what ever reason the doubling in the 1972 penny doesnít always show up very well on the date. If it shows up at all it will be more noticeable in the word LIBERTY.
