This article is inconsistent, switching back and forth between "double die" and "doubled die". - furrykef (Talk at me) 21:54, 8 Jan 2005 (UTC)

The proper term for the real error is doubled die. The term used for imitations and fakes is double die.

Doubled Die is indeed the correct term. I have never heard 'Double Die' used to annotate fakes and imitations. AFAIK, it is just incorrect terminology with no other connotations. I am not even sure what a fake Doubled Die would be called other than a fake. Mechanical Doubling is the closest other thing I can think of and it is just referred to as that or Machine Damage Doubling (MDD). In addition, and just picking a nit, Doubled Dies are actually considered varieties, and not errors, as they occur on every coin struck with a Doubled Die. --Qwertypoiuy 03:01, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

Could anybody who's seen the movie confirm the trivia? Neither IMDB nor Wikipedia's entries on the movie mention anything about a penny. mikmt 16:34, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

I have seen it, and it does indeed happen in the movie. -- SonicAD (talk) 17:24, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
You can cite the script. Described as a 'double die denver' though. http://www.script-o-rama.com/movie_scripts/u/uhf-script-transcript-weird-al.html --108.2.127.21 (talk) 07:07, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Rare?[edit]

These coins are said to be very rare as they were made over a one night period in 1955 and only 24,000 were minted.

I was just wondering how much one is worth, they are all circulated, I know someone who found one in good condition at a Circle K in Sahuarita, Arizona. Far from New England where they were minted and usually found. --70.176.164.179 (talk) 21:43, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Description as a non-error[edit]

This article contends that doubled dies are not errors, but instead die varieties. This is inaccurate, as per Alan Herbert in his Official Guide to Mint Errors, in which Herbert categorizes doubled dies under the "die errors" section in the PDS error system (PDS = Planchet, Die, Strike). It is well established that this is an error, and definitely was not how it was intended to be produced. Therefore, the refutation of the 1955 doubled die as not being an "error" is technically a false argument and does not belong here. Wcarper (talk) 17:58, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Image please?[edit]

Uhh, any chance of someone including an image of this coin? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Old wombat (talkcontribs) 08:20, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
