    Unanswered: 1922 D with doubling on obverse motto

    Hi newbie here and hope I listed the question correctly. But have a 1922 D that I am curious above the obverse, if it appears real and what term I would use to best describe. Thanks so much in advance. 3 pics attached please let me know if more or higher quality are needed.

    It looks like die deterioration doubling.
    On those 1922 cents they used the dies until they were beyond worn out.

    Here's my favorite site to search for doubled dies and RPM (repunched mint mark) varieties. You can search the date, etc. and see great photos! I have literally spent hundreds of hours on this website!

    I agree with the others, but I would add since your new that the correct term for the back of the coin is reverse. Obverse is the front. Welcome to the forum and keep looking!

    I assume we are talking about the reverse here, not the obverse. There could have been die deterioration here also, but mostly I think we are just seeing good old circulation wear. Circulation fattens and flattens the devices like this.
    All opinions expressed are not necessarily shared by willbrooks or his affiliates. Taking them may result in serious side effects. Results may vary. Offer not valid in New Jersey.
