    I have seen this [see pics] on several 1952 LWCs, especially the effect at the left base of the '2'.

    Is this the MDD?

    Good question for Bob! 1952 on the date is on his list.

    May I suggest we move this to its own thread and have more images... I checked against the 2 listed DDOs on CC http://www.coppercoins.com/lincoln/d...&die_state=eds VV http://varietyvista.com/01a%20LC%20D...DDO%201952.htm and Wexlers and your 2 is interesting to me!!!

    I agree about the 2. I know the 5 has some notching in that area in some 50's and 60's, quite common I think.

    The 2 of the date is also Master Die doubling. You should see the same thing on almost all 1952 cents
