    Answered: 1909 some type of doubling?

    I was looking at some of my coins and I noticed this coming out of the U in trust and something coming out of the top part of the first 9 and something out of the top of the 0 in the date... Looked odd to me, is this some type of doubling or psd or something else.

  2. "The U of TRUST is definitely damage from two hits. One horizontally across both uprights and the second along the edge of the right leg at the top.
    The 9&0 might be small die chips but more likely just circulation damage.
    "

    Yea, it all looks like normal abuse, hits and stuff from use.

    Is the pic cropped in some way or in a strange holder? It made the reverse look funny and have a protrusion (right rev center edge) and the obv looks like a MAD but maybe it's the holder or cropping??? Or it's that and it is a bit MAD?
