The 1995 Doubled Die Obverse
(DDO) is a result of a Class V
doubling, or "pivoted hub dubbling".
Instead of the image being rotated
with respect to the center of the coin,
such as the 1955 doubled die, the
image is pivoted around a "pivot
point" on the die. The pivot point on
the 1995 double die is close to the
date. Thus, very little doubling can
be seen on the date, whereas much
doubling can be seen on the areas
furthest from the date.
Doubling can primarily be seen on
LIBERTY and IN GOD.
Examples of this variety are plentiful.
ANACS, PCGS, and NGC have
certified more of these than any
previous double die. Some example
may still be found in circulation.
