    Ski provides a good look how a doubled die should be. Notice that the letters on that site show the letters and numbers as wider AND typically are at the same height.
    Some of them even look like they have an additional lines at the top of letters and numbers. Its a classic sign of a doubled die prior to say 1995.

    One of the first things to try to identify is an effect called machine doubling.
    In short, its damage to the coin as the die lifts up after striking the coin.
    some times when the die lifts up, it doe not clear the coin properly and a minute amount of the devices (letters numbers portrait) can be sheared away.

    the easiest way to identify machine doubling is to look at the affected area and see if that area has part of the letters or design removed.
    numbers and letters will be thinner at one height and a portion of the letter will be lower.

    machine doubling is called many things. But in the end, machine doubling is not worth anything.
    It's very important to understand the difference between machine doubling and doubled dies.
    Many unethical people on the internet will try to disguise machine doubling as a true doubled die so be careful out there.

    I do not have a link to show the difference. Once my renovation to my new web server is complete I'll see about adding a decent article with photos and a decent tutorial.

    I am sure there are other sites out there that will give great examples as well.

    check John Wexlers site

    look for worthless doubling article in the menu to the left.
