Re: Die Deterioration or Doubling?

At first I liked the first reponse but then SPP's answer got me thinking again. I tend to rule out M.D.D. now, since the offset directions for the doubled letters are different, and M.D.D. offsets are invariably in the same direction. The 1962 Five Cent Doubled Dates have been classified by Ken Potter as Peeled Chrome Plating and even though the offsets are so even (usually looks pretty ragged on any coins that I have seen), I am inclined to vote for this as the cause of the letter doubling seen on this coin. Maybe a bit of Die Deterioration as well..
