    The proper term is Doubled Die.
    No the 8 is not Doubled. It looks like it has been flattened slightly.

    Looks like a zincoin. You can see some plating bubbling around the mint mark and other areas.
    Also the fields look too rough for a copper cent

    Greenstang got a reaction from Hoghead515 in Clad layer   
    Yes, it is possible to have a clad layer missing on one side. Colour looks like it may be copper showing  and not ED.
    Can’t be 100% sure from a photo but certainly worth getting checked out.

    Greenstang got a reaction from kenlee47 in 2019 D LOWELL QUARTER   
    Welcome to the Forum
    Your quarter is also PMD (Post Minting Damage)
    It is only an error if it happens during the striking of the coin. Anything that happens after that is considered damage

    First, Welcome to the Forum
    Here is a photo of a genuine silver Krugerrand. I don't see any word "Krugerrand " below the leg.
    FYI-  A Krugerrand is not a coin, it is bullion

    Depends on what year you are comparing it to. The Mint has changed the composition four time since then so they would have different lustres depending on the  year it was minted

    Greenstang got a reaction from James Zyskowski in 1973 d red penny full steps.should I grade   
    The full steps only pertain to Jefferson Nickels. 
    What you have is an album worthy cent that would cost way more to grade than it is worth.

    Can't do much about the Lincoln's as that is the sellers opinion about the grade.

    It is against eBay policy to have a numeric grade on a raw coin.
    Been reported. Hopefully will be removed by end of day.

    This forum is for buying/ selling coins.  Have asked it to be moved to proper forum.
    As far as your coin, it has been been severely damaged. There is no way that could happen during the striking of the coin.

    Round Die Chips are not uncommon. They start off as a pin hole in the die and through continuous striking, it slowly enlarges the hole into a round shape.
