Although not nearly as strong DDO 1,
the doubling shown on DDO 8 is fairly
significant.  Like the 1972 DDO 1 the
1972 DDO 8 is a class I rotated hub
doubling.  Doubling can be seen on the
date, LIBERTY, and IN GOD WE
TRUST.  

There are over 9 different double die
obverses known for this year.   If it were
not for the existence of DDO 1, DDO's
2, 3, 7, and 8 would be much more
popular.  The each show strong class I
doubling.  DDO's 2, 4, 5 and 7 are
rotated counterclockwise, while DDO's
1, 3, 6 and 8 are rotated clockwise.  
DDO 9 is class VIII doubling.
