1992-P Jefferson Nickel
With Unusual Strike Doubling

by Ken Potter



The two coins shown here were submitted my Mark Westcott.  They show us a form of Strike Doubling that resulted in a double image of Felix Schlag's designer's initials, FS, at the base of Jefferson's bust.  Strike Doubling of the typical sort can also be seen on the back of Jefferson's head (above the queue), his jaw and top of head above the forehead.  (See details on how the doubling was created in my June 4, 2002, installment of Varieties Notebook in Coin World.)  Should an example of strike doubling like this, (with raised doubling), command a premium?  Comments are welcome.  Please send then to:
