    Double die or not?

    Is it a double die (class VI??) or a die deterioration doubling?

    Die Deterioration

    This coin has some radial lines, are they due to die deterioration?
    Furthermore, the bottom of the neck is lenghtened (see blue arrow). Do you think it is due to die deterioration as well?
    Thanks...

    Thank you Mike. :)
    There is indeed a "step" close to the mint mark "R" and then it fades out up to the opposite rim.
