Found this 1965 Quarter. Is it a DDO?

Hello,

I search about 3-5 boxes of quarters every week. I check every 1965 for doubling. And today, under the loupe, this one caught my attention immediately. I’ve yet to find a DDO, and this looked like doubling under the loupe, so I took it to my computer and grabbed some photos under the scope.

The only potential doubling is on “In God We Trust”. There is no other doubling on any other letters or features of the obverse.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for any input!

Sure looks like it to me. Nice find!
I make coin rings and needed a 1965 quarter not long ago.
It's amazing how few and far between they have become, at least around here.
Had a heckuva time finding one.

No expert on doubling but that doesn't look like a doubled die. Remember thee are other types of doubling such as mechanical doubling and die deterioration doubling.

Wow really? '65s still make up a significant percentage of quarters near me.

This one has been a stumper. I’ve posted in several places besides just here on treasure net. Many opinions on what it could be. Still no one saying with confirmation what exactly it could be.

Welcome to the forum.

Sorry, but this is a good example just regular MD. Clad coins and nickels are notorious for MD.
The secondary lettering appears kind of flat, not rounded at all. And there are no notches at the corners which is one of the best ways to tell.

Look at the ST of TRUST. The top of the S is cut in half, not the same width as the curves and bottom. The top of the T is not the same width as the verticle leg. A true DDO would have the regular width top to the T as well as additional thickness, which should be rounded, not flat.

Keep looking. They are out there.

Thanks for the reply. Here is one last photo I have showing the "E" much better.

I agree, from the DDO's that I've seen, they are different than this, so it has been confusing as to whether it is machine doubling, or a real DDO. Considering there was no doubling anywhere else on the coin, it left me skeptical.

Die deterioration doubling for sure. Just like md, it's flat and shelflike.

In your opinion, does this add any value to this coin?
